Sturgeon Fishing Report Martyn Page is currently out in Canada, sampling the Sturgeon fishing on the mighty Fraser River, now Martyn is a regular out there and knows a thing or two about these wonderful creatures, so we were intrigued to see how he was getting on…he very kindly sent us this quick update and a couple of pictures!
Days one and two were spent search around getting an idea of what was what. It was cold and fairly slow going but had 3 on day one and 4 on day two. No real biguns with best around 75lb.
Day 3 and warm spring sun, beautiful weather to admire the scenery. No matter how many times I come it doesn’t diminish. Just awesome.
The morning was dire with no sign of a fish. Then it all switched on. In the afternoon I landed 6 sturgeon 5 of which were over 100lb with the biggest, over 8ft long and around 310lb. One heck of a work out and magic fishing.
Today, day 4, was outstanding, 9 fish totally over 1200lb with 4 over 7ft biggest around 260lb. Plus a couple of others over 100.
So in 2 days 11 fish over 100 including a 300 and 3 others over 200 and another just under. It doesn’t get much better than that. My arms feel like lead but I can’t wait to get out there tomorrow!!!
