Fraser River Sturgeon Fishing
Vancouver sturgeon fishing trips can be just amazing depending on the time of year. From mid March, April, July, August, September, October, November and December be expected to catch over 10 Lower Fraser River Sturgeon in a day, and some times over 20. We have had days of 30 to 40 sturgeon in 8 hours of fishing.This is perfect for people who live or are visiting Vancouver, Surrey, Richmond, New Westminster, Burnaby, Langley, Maple Ridge and Coquitlam. We can be fishing within 30 minutes from these cities. We are one of the only guide companies that can fish the entire Fraser River. This is because we are based in Coquitlam, B.C.
Vancouver Salmon & Steelhead Charters
If you live in the Vancouver area or just on vacation and want to experience Vancouver salmon fishing at its finest. JR’s Guiding Co Inc successfully targets all 5 species of salmon and steelhead that run through the Fraser River, which are the Sockeye, Chinook, Pinks, Coho, and Chum salmon. Sockeye salmon usually arrive in the beginning of July and remain in the area until October and the Mighty Fraser River is where you’ll find the biggest ones.The Chinook is the largest of the salmon species, normally weighing anywhere between 10 to 50 pounds. Chinook fishing begins in May and concludes in November. Pink Salmon comes up the Fraser River every odd number of years and usually arrive in the beginning of August until October.(2017 is a pink year!!!). Coho Salmon fishing begins in September and concludes in December. Fishing for Coho is a unique experience due to the fact that Wild Coho Salmon are a protected fish and when fishing for them you can only keep hatchery fish, which can be identified by their cut adipose fin. Last, but not least there is the Chum Salmon which runs in October until November. These fish are aggressive and fight hard. However, the fact that they are excellent smoked and their roe is the best for sturgeon fishing makes fishing for them all worthwhile. Steelhead have two runs, a summer run and a winter run. The summer run steelhead come up the rivers in June/July and are found in the rivers for the majority of the year. The winter run steelhead start running as early as late November but the peak of the run usually comes in around January/March and can be fished till April.31st on most rivers until they close but we do have rivers that stay open for late spring steelheading.
