Sturgeon fishing picking up
The past two days we have seen some great sturgeon fishing in the Mission area. Yesterday we had 7 boats on the water, 2 fish landed over 8ft, several over 6 and good numbers of fish under 4ft. The tide at Mission is incoming most of the morning turn to outflow by early afternoon. The bite was off by late afternoon so you want to be on the water early morning.
The boys from Drayton Valley landed this nice 8ft sturgeon near the end of the day yesterday, nice fish.
This fish measured 8ft 4 inches to the fork, a joint effort from our guests from Bitrum Industries.
Another beauty landed by Rusty Kempe of Powell River. Just one of several large fish they landed.
We saw a few salmon rolling and jumping while the tide was coming in but nothing like we are use to, I think we need some rain to get these salmon moving into the river. I think we just broke a record for longest period ever with no rain.
If you are wanting salmon, there are a few Coho and Chum moving into the Harrison River, Casey was scouting the Harrison yesterday and found a few Coho around the Chehalis confluence, was is so low that fish are very spooky, most hiding under brush or cut banks.
We still have a few spots available this week, give us a call if you would like to get out on the water.
Have a great week.
