FISHING – CANADA, BRITISH COLUMBIA FRASER
Fishing trips to Canada, British Columbia. Fly fishing or spin fishing for salmon and fishing for sturgeon. Fishmaster will arrange hosted fishing trips to British Columbia. Fraser Valley is considered as one of the best fishing areas in British Columbia. Salmon fishing is unique in the world. Nowhere in the world can larger number of salmon be found than in Fraser River and its tributaries – often 30 million plus salmon per season.
The Fraser Valley offers five spectacular salmon rivers: Fraser, Harrison, Chilliwack, Upper Pitt and Stave rivers. There are also 195 lakes in the area, mostly within about a 45 minut drive. We can fish both with fly rods and with spinning gear. The Fraser valley also offers good trout fishing throughout the year. The Cutthroat trout are the dominat species but there are also good opportunities for rainbow, dolly varden and steelhead. There is also excellent giant white sturgeon fishing in area.
Fishing for salmon begins in June for king salmon and continues through until late November. Between August and November we fish for sockeye salmon, pink salmon, coho salmon and chum salmon. Sturgeon fishing season lasts round the year. The best season for cutthroat trout fishing is from October to April. Steelhead fishing is at its best from mid February to mid April. Dolly varden fishing peak is in autumn.
FLY FISHING, SPIN FISHING
Fishing can be done with fly fishing gear or with spin fishing equipment and by wading or from the fishing boat. The professional fishing guide will pick you up from your accomodation in the morning and will take you to the river or the lake you want. He will show you the places, techiques and so on. In the afternoon when the fishing day is over he will bring you back to the accomodation.
For fly fishing in British Columbia we recommend 12-15 foot double handed rods for lines #8-11 or single hand rods for lines 8-9 and suitable fly reels with good quality brakes. Intermediate or different sinking tip shooting heads are most used fly lines. Good flies are for example: Glo Bug, Green Spruce, Harrison Special, Pearlabou, Pink Passion, Pink Polar Shrimp, Pixies revenge, Leech, Rolled Muddler, Russian Fly, Woolly Bugger, Egg Suck’n Leech, Popsicle. Spin fishing rods should be long handled and medium-heavy action and recommended for 1-3 ounce lures. Most used lures are spoons. The hooks should be single hooks and barbless. Fishing guide has all fishing tackle needed with him including flies and lures, but you can also take with your own fishing gear.
