My friends and I are from New York City seeked a guide for Salmon fishing in late Oct. After some research we came across this outfit based in Vancouver. Gave Lang a ring and he was always courteous and prompt in response. Pricing was competitive for the charter. The silly foodie that I was I asked if I could do sashimi of the salmon I may catch that day on the boat and Lang laughed saying that's not a good idea. All salmon should be frozen for a day or two before eating raw. So my excited dream of eatting the freshest salmon sashimi sizzled but on the day of our fishing trip Lang surprized me and brought a appetizer of sashimi sockeye salmon for lunch! This was in addition to his standard lunch offering which was also impressive for $15 a head - hot BBQ short ribs and BBQ fresh salmon as well as cold drinks.
We started at 8:30am and soon after started bringing in chum salmon early. Caught our limits of keeper Chum Salmon before lunch time but did not see any Coho Salmon. Lang then found out from his colleagues that there was a open commercial fishing day for Coho on the river the day before so the commercial boats netted all the Coho leaving none for us. Sad. So after the awesome BBQ lunch we decided to give Sturgeon fishing a try. Using the eggs from the salmon we had for lunch we dropped the lines for Sturgeon. Within minutes we had our first Sturgeon on the line - a smaller one at 3 feet. Minutes after we let that beauty back into the river we caught our 7 foot beast. That was a fun fight for 40mins before she tired out and we were able to bring her on board for some amazing pictures for us city slickers from NYC. After returning this beast into the river we caught our second 6' beast within an hour later! After this baby we called it a day. These 3 "tough New Yorkers" were beat and tired but had a blast.
Lang is the man. We had a great time with a professional guide who offers service, knowledge, and a great lunch! The best guide to fishing on the Fraser River and guide of other things to do in Vancouver! We will definately be back and Lang is the guide we are calling.
For a great time call Lang!
