Monster Sturgeon fishing - Legends are made here!
We must give most of the credit to our prehistoric friends the Fraser river White Sturgeon aka the Fraser river Marlin, but putting in years of pride and passion driven fishing and feeding behaviour study must offer us some credentials? You bet it does.
Welcome to the world of Big Game freshwater fishing with Silversides, on one of the worlds great rivers: The Fraser. White Sturgeon are world renowned for epic battles that pit man against beast, or rather men because their brute power and stamina often requires shift work between friends to bring em in! Battles can be hours long and we have seen guests wanting to go in early to recover their arms and spirit over a few cold ones for the next day's round of wrestling. We can crank down on the drags but when Sturgeon want to run they are going to, sometimes for hundreds of yards. Or be prepared for a massive fish heaving itself out of the water multiple times trying to spit the hook. It is a typical day to see fish over 200 lbs and encounters with 500 lb fish or bigger happen each season for us. Getting these hogs landed is not an easy task as they will not give up easily and seem to know where the underwater stumps are. But we do land some of them.
Upcoming Sturgeon fishing: our prime times for catching these epic fish is July to early November. Fish will average 5-7 ft with many fish over 300 lbs. The true monsters(over 500 lbs) can be taken anytime from mid July to October but best times are July 20 - August 31.
May and June have pretty good fishing but the river is high from the snow melt so shore landing a fish can be a challenge.
For years now we have teamed up with local accomodation specialists to provide a complete angling package for you. Our full service packages take care of you from arrival at Vancouver International Airport(YVR) right through to departure.
Corporate giant Oracle and the rock group Kings of Leon love our guide service so we think you will too.
Ask by email for our PDF brochure on these prime fishing packages. Salmon packages are available too and can be combined with Sturgeon for a great variety of excitement!
