The Fraser River has finally dropped back into its normal water levels after another record breaking year of high waters and flooding and the sturgeon fishing is remaining steady. As the weather finally warms up, our guests are experiencing great sturgeon fishing with many larger sturgeon getting caught.
With all of the Chinook and Sockeye in the Fraser River right now, the sturgeon have transitioned from eels and eulachons over to salmon parts and salmon roe with a few sturgeon being taken on pike minnows.
Chinook salmon fishing remains strong on the Fraser river right now, with a few fish being taken that are tipping the scales at over 30 pounds.
Upper Pitt River
The Upper Pitt River is still producing good catches of sea run bull trout and Sockeye salmon with the odd Chinook being caught as well. The prefered method of fishing this river is with a fly rod but spin casting brass and nickel spoons have been quite productive as well. The water levels on the Upper Pitt River have dropped quite a bit over the past week which seems to make the fish hold up in certain runs and pools making them a little easier to target. For those of you that have never fished the Upper Pitt before, this world class pristine river is comparable to many remote river systems in Northern BC and it is only an hour from downtown Vancouver. Give us a call today and let our team of experienced guides take you for a days fishing on the Upper Pitt River that you’ll never forget.
