 Fransisco with a beautiful fall Chinook !

Dal Kubeska with a massive 8'4" 400lb sturgeon caught on Sept 24 on a fishing trip with Langs. It was the 5th fish over 5 ft caught on the 4 hour trip

Colin and friend's awesome sturgeon catch Sept/2017

The fall with much cooler temperatures, provides for better lake fishing and opportunites to introduce your children to fishing like this young angler.. 

Luka's first fish !

Capilano River-  

River has come up with the recent rain. There are good numbers of Coho and Chinook Salmon coming through. Remember the Bait Ban doesn't lift until November 1st.


There are some Chum and Coho salmon coming in now. Limits are as follows.. (1) Hatchery Coho per day from the power lines above the confluence of the Chekamus downstream. 

Fraser River-
The river is now OPEN for salmon fishing! Chinook are open for 4 per day with only 1 over 62cm. These fish can be targetted by bar fishing in the Non Tidal portion with Spin n Glo's! Coho salmon are coming through now as well in decent numbers, you are allowed to retain 2 Hatchery Coho Salmon!

This year we will be having a Lower Fraser Hatchery Coho Salmon Derby, all the info and derby leaders are under our contest tab on the website!

Sturgeon fishing has been fantastic from Chilliwack down river as far as Ladner. This has probaly been the best season we have seen for consistent numbers of big fish in the lower river.. alot of regular customers of ours have been reporting quite a few fish in the 6 to 7 ft range and one confirmed 8 footer!! Eels, Eulichons, Roe and Dew Worms have all worked but it seems switching between  baits has been a big difference maker, sometimes adding scent can also give you that extra edge.


The water has come up and very good numbers of fish are pushing through the river! The white Chinook salmon run is starting to taper down a bit but the Coho and Chum salmon are coming in ver strong numbers. Pro Cured or Boraxed cured Roe and Spawn Sacs are the best bets as far as bait choices go. Colorado blades are also effective fished under a float and for the softer frog water casting spoons and spinners and twitching jigs will be your best options!


There are big numbers of Chum Salmon coming in now! Pink and Purple Jigs under a float is the most effective way to target these fish. There are also some Coho Salmon coming through the system.


With the rain we are getting over the next couple weeks this system will be worth a look. Coho and Chum Salmon will be the targetted species. Remember this system is best fished on a high water drop.

Local Lakes -

Local lake fishing has been good. Buntzen, Sasamat, Green Timbers, Rice, Como and Lafarge have all been recently stocked and have been producing.

Lakes of the Fraser valley such as Cultis, Chilliwack, Jones, Hicks, Weaver, Deer and Allouette lakes are all good productive lakes.
