Fishing remains good on our local rivers for both salmon and sturgeon, the big talk this year has been around the incredible Coho Fishing. Even as late as yesterday our guides were still producing chrome silver Coho using Gibbs Crocs and Ultra Lures. There is 3 areas that we have been doing well, Harrison, Stave and main stem Fraser between Dewdney Slough and Hatzic Flats, Reports of good Coho fishing are also coming from Norish Creek.
Chum fishing is also very good and will produce results well into late November, we are mostly float fishing with jigs and fly fishing but they can also be taken using Gibbs Spoons as well. Both the Stave and Harrison confluence is producing fresh chum on each high tide. Best to check your tides and try to fish the incoming if you are fishing the Stave R, for the Harrison try fishing about 2 hours after high tide reaches Mission for best push of fish.
This has been one of the best seasons we have seen for sturgeon fishing on the Fraser, lots of big fish this year and our team is still landing the big ones on a daily basis. Although we are starting to wind down we will continue to offer sturgeon trips until last weekend in November, then we will be taking a break for a few months and allow these fish to rest in their wintering holes. If you plan on going out this weekend, Chum roe is your best bait, rotten salmon is also working but fresh eggs are producing best results.
Our Jet Boat Tours are done for another season, this was our busiest year ever and would like to thank everyone who journeyed up the Fraser Canyon with me. We are already getting booked for next summer/fall so be sure to book early for 2014. Speaking of 2014, STS Guiding Service will be celebrating our 20th year in business and will be offering some great incentives to book early.
