Fraser River SportFishing Alliance

For those of you who know me, your well aware that I am very involved with the political side of our fisheries.

Part of my Director duties for the Fraser Valley Angling Guides Association is to go to many high level meetings involving First Nations, Government and user groups. It’s a thankless job but imperative to staying knowledgeable and giving input for recommendations on fisheries. In many cases, fighting for opportunity.

It always make me laugh when I hear people complain about one issue or another but they do nothing about it. I can say over the last 9 years, I can count on one hand the guys who have been going to these high level meetings, dedicating significant time to fight for not only rec anglers but other guiding companies, that we actually are competing against.

Your welcome!

Recently, a lobby group like nothing before has been formed to fight for the recreational angler. This is the most important group I’ve been apart of because we have been losing our opportunity to fish the Fraser as rec anglers have seen significant decrease over the years set by DFO.

See HERE for article in the Chilliwack Progress.

Anyone who fishes the Fraser, makes a living off the fisheries, from guides, hotels to gas stations and so on, you need to pay attention to this ongoing issue. Our heritage as many of you know, is slipping away.

We will be seeking donations to keep this group together and fighting. If your interested in helping please email fraser.river.sf.alliance@gmail.com

Thank you and Stay tuned.

Thank you Simms Wader Makers !

Simms Fishing Products- Sturgeon Slayers Guiding Company

No fishery I know of depends more on good waders than Sturgeon. The size, scutes, weight and amount of wear and tear that the fishery brings to gear is unbelievable.

I have been working with Simms Fishing Products for a decade now. From testing to products demos, marketing and more. I can confidently say, these Gore-Tex waders have been proven year after year with hardcore guides who depend on them.

Not Salmon, trout or steelhead, just hardcore prehistoric fish, hundreds of pounds hammering on them, all day.

There is a reason why all the top guides here wear Simms. Don’t reinvent the wheel, jump on it.

It’s with that, we say Thank you to all those involved with keeping us dry.

For those of you few people not on social media, we will be sharing with you some unique moments we have experiences over the years. Here is our smallest Sturgeon we have caught, by pure luck! This trip also saw one of our largest fish of 2015 as well measuring 9’7 fork length.

Fork Length is the proper measurement when dealing with Sturgeon. Some guiding companies and other anglers have been looking for some fame and attention by measuring them the total length then run to the media.

As we are a major contributor to the Fraser River Sturgeon Conservation Society, we uphold a high standard when collecting our data for the Tagging Program. This includes measuring them properly so we can collect accurate information for the health of the fishery.

Measure Fork Length with a tight tape and pectoral girth. No fishermen stories, if you know what your doing and put your time in, you won’t need to lie;)
