Winter Sturgeon: (December-February)
Sturgeon can be caught year round, including the winter months. While the cold water slows down their activity, they still put up a pretty good fight. If you’re visiting the area or just want to get out on the water, take advantage of our GIANT winter/spring sturgeon special.
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 eulachons, 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.
