Fraser Valley BC Fishing Report
By Vic Carrao, STS Guiding Service | Last updated: November 11th, 2014
Although the season is starting to wind down, there are still some great fishing opportunities for those who don't mind fishing the cooler weather. Chum salmon, late run coho salmon and sturgeon fishing remains good.
Over the last couple of weeks we have consistently produced good catches of both salmon and sturgeon. Currently we have trips booked right up until end of November so it's not too late to get out and enjoy some great fishing. November can often produce some of the best action for both species but weather can be a bit cool and wet. Most of our trips are departing from Mission Harbour so for salmon trips we fish the Stave River and sturgeon is mostly done below Mission in the Tidal Fraser River.
If you are looking to get out on the water we will be offering guided river fishing trips until end of November, we will then put away the jet boats and gear until early spring when we will again target sturgeon and cutthroat trout.
If you are visiting Vancouver on business, winter holiday or just need to get out onto the water, we are still offering our Vancouver Habour winter chinook salmon trips out of Downtown Vancouver. The winter fishery can be productive for chinook salmon between 5 to 12lbs with some great days on the water.
Planning for 2015
We have already begun booking for 2015 summer salmon and halibut charters on the West Coast of Vancouver Island. These trips are 4 night 3 day, 3 night 2 day or we can custom design a trip specific to your group. We begin in late June and operate through to the end of July. The fishing is world class and outright amazing. We are currently 60% booked so we still have some space available. All dates are considered prime time so everyone will experience a trip of a lifetime.
For 2015 we have a new lodge to offer in Quatsino Sound, this 16 room lodge can sleep 32 people and offers a private relaxing setting in beautiful Heckitt Cove.
We will continue to offer accommodations at Whales Reach for those that prefer to have the ability to drive into town in the evenings.
