Winter/Spring Steelhead (December-April)
For the avid river angler, December marks the beginning of our winter steelhead season. This is the time of the year when you get the brightest and hardest fighting fish. Fresh fish will continue to enter the local river systems over the next few months, with February and March typically being top producing months. Good steelhead fishing can be experienced right until the end of April.
Spring Sturgeon Fishery (March-May)
During the spring months, small smelt-like fish called “eulachons” enter the Fraser River to spawn. Sturgeon seem to be aware of this annual trend, and many fish migrate from different parts of the river and from the Pacific Ocean for this first BIG feeding period of the year. After the lean winter months, sturgeon start to feed heavily on the eulachon, providing some great spring fishing opportunities. The bites are aggressive, and with the increasing water temperatures, the fish, once again, start to put up exceptional fights with aerial displays and powerful runs. Hooking up to 15+ fish in an 8 hr outing is not uncommon during this time.
Summer Sea-Run Bull Trout Fishery (May-July)
If you enjoy targeting large & aggressive wild trout on the fly, this fishery is for you! These trips are ideal 1-day excursions, regardless of your location in the Greater Vancouver Area/Fraser Valley.
From late May to late July, one can experience incredible fly fishing opportunities for these feisty fish that can reach weights in excess of 12lbs. For more information on this amazing fishery, click here.
Summer Sturgeon (June-September)
Some of the BIGGEST fish get hooked at this time of the year. During the summer, and for those seeking a truly awesome sturgeon fishing experience, we HIGHLY recommend doing a Fraser Canyon Sturgeon Adventure. 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!
