    Fraser Valley report for the week of December 15 /2002

    As I mentioned last week our website is going through a major overhaul. We are continuing to upgrade the site with our new look. If you find a page or two with broken links please send us an e-mail so we can repair it.  If you have any comments or suggestions, please feel free to call or e-mail us. 

    Fraser River

    The Fraser River is in excellent shape, visibility is still very good with water temperatures stable in the mid 40’s. Salmon fishing is pretty much over for the Fraser for this season but what a season it was. We had an incredible year of fishing starting with the early run of Chinook right through until the last week where we were still catching chrome Chum salmon. Next season should be much the same, but add another 6- 15 million fish, as next year is a Pink Salmon return year.

    Christmas gift ideas
    It’s hard to believe Christmas is just around the corner. The weather feels more like September so it’s hard to grasp the fact that December 25 is only 10 days away. 
    Buying Christmas gifts can be frustrating when you’re buying for that angler that seems to have everything he needs.  We have several seminars and guide trips that are tailored for this time of year. We offer gift certificates for both our annual 3-day steelhead/river fishing seminar (January) our annual 3-day fly-casting seminar (March/April) and 4, 6 & 8 hour guide trip for salmon or sturgeon. All these gifts can be purchased on-line through e-mail or you can call us at 604-671-FISH

    Cutthroat fishing continues to produce good results in the Chilliwack to Agassiz area. Why I mention this area is because we don’t fish for Cutthroats much below Chilliwack. Anywhere that you will find spawning salmon you will find a few opportunistic Cutthroat. We spent a few hours fishing Queens the other day with 6 fish in only 30 minutes of fishing. This is exceptional fishing so our hopes are that this will continue as long as the weather patterns remain the same.


    Sturgeon fishing was fair this week with good numbers of fish between 3- 5 feet and the odd fish over 6 feet. Our guests Jon, his wife and 9 month baby from the UK had a great day of fishing landing 3 large fish in just 4 1/2 hours of fishing. Jon managed to land the biggest one on shore so we could get a great picture for his friends and family back home.

    Sturgeon fishing will slow somewhat over the next few months but as long as this mild weather continues and your fishing the right tide, you should still be able to catch a few nice fish. Our next peak fishing period is in the spring when the Eulachon migration occurs. 

    Dewdney / Stave
    Same as last week
    Salmon fishing is pretty much over for the Stave although there are still some colored up Coho and old chum that could be fished for. If your shaking with fishing withdrawals and need a quick fix, try fishing the side channels on the east side of the river. Try to avoid casting at spawning fish, there are still some that are just holding that might be willing to co-operate.

    The Dewdney slough has been producing the odd late Coho in the upper reaches near Norish Cr and near the confluence of the Fraser where there are still a few anglers trolling lures. Norish cr itself had fished well the past week but as the water dropped so did the fishing. We are still expecting a good push of late Coho to come up the Norish, all we need is some rain. If we get a heavy rainfall over the next week, you might want to give it a try.

    Vedder River

    The Vedder River is flowing high right now after the heavy rains this past 48 hours. As of 9:30 the upper river above the clay banks is still fishable, the lower river has less than 12 inches of visibility. If this warm weather and heavy rains continue, the river will blow out quickly. I would suggest calling your local tackle store for current and updated reports before you head out.

    Steelhead fever has already begun. A few nice fish were caught this week but don’t get too excited quite yet. We still have a good month or so before it really gets going. If this seasons salmon runs are any indication, we can expect some larger than average fish and possible late runs. Most of our salmon runs peaked about 2 weeks late so there is a good chance that our steelhead runs will follow suit. I guess all we can do right now is wait and see what happens.

    River fishing/Steelhead seminar 
    Great Christmas Gift Idea
    Once again we will be offering our 3- day river fishing /steelhead seminar which will be held in late January. This seminar is very popular and has sold out when offered. This year’s seminar will be held once again at Hub Sports in Abbotsford. The classroom sessions will be from 7-9 PM each night, the fish out is from 8 AM – 2 PM.
    You can read more about this seminar at  http://www.guidebc.com/floatseminar.asp

    Chehalis River

    Our morning report has the Chehalis high, colored but fishable. There is lots of colored up Coho still around but those fish should be left alone. Steelhead season doesn’t really get going on this river until mid to late January although you hear of a few fish being caught every couple of days. If your wanting to catch steelhead I would recommend staying on the Vedder system until at least mid January.

    Harrison River
    Believe it or not, the Harrison is still producing some chrome Chum salmon. Our guide Tom Pearce was out a few days ago and landed some very nice looking fishing. We also found a few Cutthroat and even Dolly Varden feeding on salmon eggs. If your wanting to target trout, be sure to carry a few egg patterns along with you. If your heading out in a small boat be careful, the winds have been strong and the waves large.

    Trout and Char fly-fishing 
    Trout fishing has just begun to pick up now that the majority of the salmon have spawned and died. The Fraser has fished well for Cutthroat this past week with good numbers of fish between 8-14 inches. Our best winter fishery is just beginning to heat up. Good numbers of Bull trout, Rainbows and Cutthroat can be caught all winter. We not only offer guided jet boat trips but also guided raft trips on rivers seldom fished by anyone in the winter. We are now taking booking for winter/spring steelhead and trout fishing on one of our more remote river adventures. Space is limited so don’t wait until it’s too late.

    Fraser River
    Salmon fishing is getting Hot!
    Fraser Valley report for the week of July 24 /2002

    Fraser River
    The Fraser River is coming into excellent shape. Water levels have been receding at a rapid rate since last Sunday, so it’s looks like the river will be ready for the anticipated August 1 sockeye sport fishery. We have been fishing for Chinook salmon for the past two weeks with good to great results. We have been averaging 1 to 3 fish per day with some spectacular days. Stan Wiens of Abbotsford caught our largest fish this week, this chrome beauty weighed in at 31.5 lbs. The average size has been between 14 – 25 lbs but good numbers of fish over 30 lbs have been caught.

    Fishery Notice- Salmon fishing closure
    Effective 00:01 July 25 the waters of the Fraser River known as:
    Grassy bar, Spaghetti Bar and Herrling Island are closed to fishing until sockeye retention opportunities are announced. The notice states that this action has been taken to address the impacts on low numbers of returning sockeye that are being intercepted by sport anglers, yet last weekend we had a full out commercial fishery and native fishery throughout the entire lower Fraser basin.  I can assure you that sport anglers are intercepting very few sockeye; our best day so far this season was 4 fish, not much of an impact I would say. Just as I received word of the closure, I watched nets being dropped by the Cheam Band just above the Agassiz Rosedale Bridge, one of the very areas that have been closed to sport fishing. Makes me wonder what the real reason for closing this area might be?

    Sturgeon fishing has been fair to good the past several weeks. We have had hooked some very nice fish with our largest being just over 7 feet.  Anglers can expect sturgeon fishing to improve as more sockeye entire the river. This is a major food source for sturgeon in the summer and fall, the more fish in the river the better the fishing. 

    The Vedder/Chilliwack is in excellent shape. Water flows are moderate with good visibility. Anglers are catching good numbers of Chinook salmon in the upper river with some sockeye mixed in. Sockeye is all catch and release so please handle these fish with care. Most of the Chinook are holding in the deeper pools and larger runs like the Ranger Run, Borden Creek, Allison Pools and Fort Apache. Good baits to try would include cured salmon roe, sand shrimp; wool ties in various shades of red, orange and chartreuse.

    Chehalis River
    The Chehalis River is gin clear and low. This river fishes best at first light until late morning then your pretty much wasting your time. Try fishing it again late evening when the light is low again. Some summer steelhead are still being caught but the majority of fish are now up in the mid to upper canyon. Try using small roe bags or small wool ties that imitate salmon eggs. We have always done well with Jensen eggs or similar plastic artificial.

    Harrison River is still quite high but is dropping at a good rate along with the Fraser. Trout fishing has been slow overall with the occasional cutthroat being caught on fly and lure.
    Don’t expect much from this river until mid September when the sockeye are in the river in good numbers.

    Remember to conserve your catch

    November Sturgeon Special

    November/ December is two of the best months to fish for sturgeon. This is when we catch some of the biggest fish of the year. The average size increases to many fish over 6-7 feet with good chances at hooking into that trophy fish of a lifetime. We are offering a sturgeon special for the month of November/December.  Book at guided trip for 3 persons and bring the 4th person for free or receive a FREE STS Sturgeon ball cap for each person in your party. This special is good until December 31/2002; we also offer gift certificates that can be used as Christmas gifts for that special Husband or Dad.

    November fly fishing for salmon seminar

    Once again we will be offering our annual fly-fishing for salmon seminar. This is a one-day on the river seminar where you will learn how to fish for salmon on the fly. We will spend a few hours teaching you about catching salmon on the fly, then you will have an opportunity to fish and catch Coho and Chum salmon. We will be keeping our groups small so seating is limited. We will run our river jet boats up the Harrison River to some of the best fly water in the province. Our one-day seminar will be held during the week of November 12- 17 with weekday and weekend seminars. The cost is $135.00 per person and includes a STS ball cap.
    Please call or e-mail to pre-register.
