With the arrival of the big salmon runs in August and September, we expect sturgeon fishing to be nothing less than incredible throughout all portions of the river. We cover over 160km of river and offer 5 departure points to accommodate your travel & fishing needs!
Summer Salmon Runs: (July-September)
Chinook, Sockeye, and Pink salmon fisheries are the highlights during the summer months. Both Sockeye and summer Red Chinook runs peak during the month of August and the first half of September. Pink Salmon return to the river system every 2 years on the odd year ONLY, peaking during the month of September. On non- Pink Salmon years, September is a transition month, where summer salmon stocks taper off and the fall salmon stocks start showing up. Please visit our Fish Species Calendar to view timing of all these salmon runs.
