March 6 Update
March 6, 2012 Comments Off on March 6 Update
We just finished up with the BC Boat & Sportsman Show and are getting ready to hit the road for 5 shows in Alberta. While I am gone Tom, Thomas and Chad will be on the water guiding and taking care of our groups & boats. I will still have access to phone and e-mail so if you are wanting to book a trip, no worries, we can you on the water.
Look’n good Tommy, wow are the steelhead ever big this year.
After the hard rain over the weekend the river is starting to clear up. Tom, Chad and Thomas were all out on the water today, Tom managed to land this beauty. If you havn’t noticed already, the steelhead this year are quite a bit larger than average years. Not sure why but it looks like we are either getting some older fish returning possibly 4 and 5 year olds or they had a great feeding session on their return migration.
Thomas with another wild Steelhead caught on the Vedder River.
Looks like the weather will be nice for the next few days so you might want to get out and enjoy before the next rainfall. Lots of fresh fish moving into the canal so the next few days should be excellent.
Water conditions on the Fraser are excellent, water clarity is good, water temperatures are at 38 and climbing. Our boats will be on the water steady starting this weekend so if you are looking for a charter, give us a shout. We have some great deals on right now so great time to take advantage of our spring fishery. Sturgeon fishing will continue to improve as water temperatures increase, April /May will be our next peak fishing.
Our canyon trips will be starting in mid April, if you are looking for a trip of a lifetime, this trip is the one. Our canyon trips depart from Hope fishing 30 miles of river between Boston Bar and Yale. If you are interested, please call me for rates.
Vancouver Ocean Fishing for Salmon
Salmon fishing has been a bit slow this past week, a few of our associate guides were out and hooked into several keepers. Over the next few weeks we should see some improvements in Vancouver Harbour as well as south end of Bowen Island. Crab and prawn fishing has been good with limits on most days.
