Fraser Valley BC Fishing Report

By Vic Carrao, STS Guiding Service | Last updated: July 20th, 2015

Fraser river sturgeon

It has been a busy two weeks since our last report, lots going on in the Fraser Valley and Vancouver Island. Despite the fires burning throughout British Columbia, the fishing remains excellent. We have been targeting sturgeon on the Fraser, salmon and halibut on Vancouver Island and trout on the Upper Pitt River. All of these fisheries are producing great results.

The monster sturgeon above measured 9ft7in and was caught just 100 meters from our dock in Mission on July 6th, what a beautiful fish!

Fraser River sturgeon

With low snow pack this season the river is already in great shape, we have started up our canyon fishing adventures one month early and fishing has been very good. August through to middle of November is peak timing for sturgeon fishing and with the predicted 16 million pink salmon returning late summer, we should have another spectacular season on the water.

Upper Pitt River

Upper Pitt River bull trout

The Upper Pitt River is still fishing very well, we expect this fishery to continue well into August. Water is low this season so a maximum of two anglers per boat will be implemented to allow for safe navigation of the river. This fishery is the only fly fishery in the region until the salmon fishery begin in August, lots of great fishing and wild life viewing opportunities.

Fraser River Canyon

Due to low water our Fraser Canyon Adventures and Hells Gate Tours has started up one month early. We have a few dates still available for weekends in July and some weekday trips in August and September. Come join us for another great year on the Water.

West Coast Vancouver Island

West Coast of Vancouver island fishing

Our West Coast Salmon and Halibut Charters are already up and running, I just returned from 3 days and wow fishing is hot. Lots of Chinook, Coho, Ling Snapper and Halibut to be caught with generous limits for each angler. This fishery is best in July and early August, we still have 2 dates available for July if you can do a last minute trip. Shoots us an e-mail for available dates, best west coast rates in the region. If you can't make it out this season, we are now taking booking for 2016.

All packages include accommodations at Kagoagh Lodge, breakfast, lunch & dinner, full days of guided fishing 10 hours per day, all fishing tackle and private guide and boat for each group. We do not mix groups so all packages include private guide.
