After a very exciting September sturgeon fishery on the Fraser river, we were wondering how October would start out. It turns out the Fraser’s white sturgeon are maintaing a pretty steady diet of pinks and other items. While we are seeing more of the slightly smaller fish on the feed and to the side of the boat, we are still releasing some of the bigger heavy weights as well. Fishing continues to be steady and productive throughout the lower Fraser river. As the pink salmon feast begins to fade, bait choices will switch to chum roe, lamprey and “floaters”, aptly coined as “stink bait”. Water temperature on the Fraser is continually dropping, a big signal to the fish that winter is approaching. The sturgeon will feed heavily as water temperatures drop and sturgeon fishing will become weather dependant by middle to late November.
Salmon fishing has been very good with chinooks, coho and chum salmon available to anglers in the Fraser and tributaries such as the Chilliwack/Vedder and the Harrison river. We’ve enjoyed some very good chinook fishing both on bar rigs and spoons on the Fraser and Harrison. The best chum are still to come and should be arriving in the latter half of this month and into the first two weeks of November. Coho have been a bit scarce but are most certainly on their way, and offer some exciting fishing opportunities on spinning and fly gear!
Good fishing should continue well into November. There are endless fishing opportunities in many areas of the Fraser valley during this time of year. We look forward to fishing with our guests this fall! Until next time, good luck and good fishing!
