July 23 Fishing Report

Fraser river opens for Salmon fishing this weekend
The past two weeks have been very productive for both salmon and trout and fair to good for sturgeon. We have been fishing the Vancouver area, West Coast of the Island, Pitt River and Fraser for Sturgeon, See below for detailed report.
Vancouver Island Salmon
I have just returned from 2 weeks of guiding over at our Coal Harbour Location, the fishing has been red hot with Coho and Chinook Salmon as well as Halibut and Rock Fish such as snapper and ling cod. We still have dates available from now until end of August so if you are looking for a 2 or 3 day trip, this is a great location. The best part is that we do not have to fish too far out so most of the fishing is like trolling in a lake with flat water.
Glen, Brian and Taylor had some great fishing on the west coast, this day we limited out on both Chinook and Coho.
Glen hooked this beauty Ling Cod weighing 19lbs.,
This 29 lb Chinook was landed by Dan Cenentari of Asotin Washington, nice fish Dan
Salmon Fishing on the West Coast will continue to produce these types of results for another 4 to 6 weeks so if your looking for that trip of a lifetime, give us a shout.
Salmon Fishing in around vancouver has been fair to good, our last charter a few days ago landed a couple nice Coho and a Chinook Salmon, as more fish begin to enter the Fraser, Salmon fishing will only improve. Best bait right now is Anchovies, White hoochies for Coho and G-Force Spoons has been knocking them dead both on the Island and Vancouver area.
Fishing for salmon around Vancouver can produce good results in July/August.
Water is dropping really fast right now but I think we are going to see a bit of a rise over the next few days due to warm weather. Sturgeon fishing has been fair with most trips landing between 3 to 6 fish in a 8 hour charter and 3 to 5 fish in a 6 hour charter. We are using all kinds of bait right now with no one bait being best but Lamprey has still been producing consistent results.
Nice big Kiss for the Sturgeon, hopefully he will appreciate all the love.lol.
Pitt River Trout & Salmon
The Pitt River has been fishing very good the past few weeks, lots of salmon showing up with both Chinook and Sockeye in the river as well as Bull Trout. All of our trips have done well this past week so now is the time to get out and enjoy the great fishing.
very nice Bull Trout caught on the Pitt River this past week.
Overall Fishing is very good right now and we are expecting some great salmoln runs over the next 3 months, our schedule is beginning to get full but we will always do our best to get you out on the water. Our Fraser Canyon trips start this weekend and I will be up fishing and touring the canyon all summer.
Hope to see you on the water
