Sturgeon Fishing Tackle Tips
Get your Sturgeon fishing tackle ready and be prepared

Peak Sturgeon fishing season on the Fraser river approaches as we head into spring. It won’t be long before we are hooking up with some beasts from the river! This is the perfect time to learn all the proper tackle setups and to ensure that you are ready to successfully fight that big fish. The primary objective of having your tackle adequately setup is to ensure success of landing that dream fish. Your arsenal is only as strong as the weakest link and that's where we have to ensure that all functioning parts of the system are 100%. This is also good for the health of the fish. We’ll go over the details below.

Sturgeon rods

Keeping in mind that Sturgeon can grow to epic proportions and fight with insane strength you will need a rod that can handle everythin [...]

Fly fishing the Squamish river near Vancouver - Bull trout are on the prowl for salmon fry. If you can find a pod of trout and present them a offering 'they can't refuse' then you'll be into fish! We fly fish here and are good at it. This is a beautiful river for a guided walk & wade fly fishing trip. It's only 50 minutes from Vancouve [...]

Season's End

Season's End
As this season's end approaches I look back at the adventures I had with my buddy Bob. I fish only Wednesdays and those that know me know where to find me and that is on the Sproat river of the SSS system. We lovingly call it the little flow. We would venture from the top of the spillway all the way down to the confluence of the Somass River. We had some extremely good luck - some days we could do nothing wrong right to the other end of the spectrum and not even touching a bite. We had water levels so low at times I believe we could cross over in the lower section to record high waters not seen since the last Tsunami in Port Alberni.

We could have gone to the little streams that I use to explore successfully and hike miles. My preferences have changed as I get older and prefer the bigger waters. I have to admit I do like e [...]

SmokeyRiver wrote: ''Some'' spawning activity is a major understatement. Probably 90% of the doe's we've caught in the last week have had tail damage from starting to dig, and probably 25% have been kelts. It's extremely hard to target the non-spawning fish right now. We picked up quite a few sea liced chromers the next cast after landing a dirty o [...]
