The Fraser River is home to one of the most prized freshwater game fish on the continent: the white sturgeon. Our guides are experts in catching these ancient and majestic creatures, and they will make sure that you are consistently ‘hooked up’ with these spectacular fish. It is not uncommon to see a fish in the 6-10 foot range on a daily basis.
When you engage in battle with a sturgeon, you’re in for a thrilling experience. These fish are known for their explosive fighting style, often jumping multiple times before you reel them in. They are active hunters, seeking out live prey, which makes for an exciting and challenging fishing experience.
Sturgeon have remained virtually unchanged for over 200 million years. These true living dinosaurs can grow up to 15 feet in length and weigh as much as 1800 pounds, making them an unforgettable catch for any angler. It’s an experience that every fisherman or fisherwoman needs to have on their bucket list.
The best time to catch sturgeon in the Fraser River is in early Spring, Summer and Fall; however, we generally have mild Winters, making sturgeon fishing very productive if you can time it right with the weather. The fishing remains great until the end of November, which makes it the perfect time to come and experience the thrill of catching these ancient fish.
