Fishing report for the 3rd week of January. We have been fishing a few times over the last week and the fishing has been slow due to conditions, It has been very cold and mainly snow and this has caused the river to drop last week. The beginning of this week has been much more favorable and a few fish have been hooked. it has been a normal start to ours steelhead season as there is usually a slow period in the beginning of January.
Current weather patterns right now are very favorable for local steelhead fishing. we have good water conditions and nice water levels. The first big push of steelhead should show up any day. We have a few dates available still in the mid February time frame.
We use a whitewater style raft on all of our winter steelhead trips. This allows our guests to enjoy a full day of fishing on the water without having to walk to and from runs all day. Steelhead fishing is about efficiently covering water throughout the day, The raft allows us to do this very effectively
We have not been on the Fraser for the last few weeks due to the cold weather we have had. The main river had too many ice chunks flouting down to provide safe passage. We will be heading out within the next week or so to tag some fish for the sturgeon conservation society. If you are interested in participating in this please let me know and we can arrange for you to join us for a day.
If you are interested in a day on the water we can be reached at 1-604-852-0744. Feel free to give us a call or send us a message through our contacts page.
I look forward to hearing from you and possibly spending the day on the water together.
