British Columbia – Sturgeon Fishing
If you’re truly looking for a unique and thrilling fishing experience, look no further than our outstanding Sturgeon fishing trip on the Fraser River in British Columbia. We work with a globally recognized outfitter continues to catch the largest White Sturgeon on the planet. Fisherman travel from all corners of the globe to fish the Fraser River with the outfitter. The outfitter guarantees a catch for every boat, providing every client the opportunity to put their hands on not only the largest freshwater species in the world, but one of the oldest (surviving three ice ages). Conveniently located just 1.5 hours outside of Vancouver, the Fraser River holds an estimated 60,000 White Sturgeon. These Sturgeon can live over 150 years old, and are incredibly large “fish.” You can expect to catch a Sturgeon longer than you are tall on this trip (over 6’). Most Sturgeon at 6’ in length will weigh ~200 lbs.
What makes catching these dinosaurs so exciting is the fight itself. You may expect that since these fish are so long and heavy, they wouldn’t put up much of a fight. It’s quite the opposite, in fact! This outfitter knows where these dinosaurs are! Many of the guides have been fishing on the river for over 15 years. Fisherman opt to stay at the exceptional local bed and breakfast just minutes from the boat launch. With your stay, you will receive gourmet breakfast and dinners, along with personalized treatment and unbelievable customer service. The beautiful property maintains stunning scenery and can accommodate up to 12 people. The place offers an outdoor hot tub for relaxation, large gazebo with a fire pit, and spacious living. The perfect accommodations after a long day of fighting these dinosaurs! Fishermen simply fly in and out of Vancouver, British Columbia and make the short drive to the appropriate area on the Fraser River. There is truly no “peak season” for catching these Sturgeon, therefore trips are run throughout the course of the year. This trip provides a great opportunity to wrap up a trip by experiencing the beautiful city of Vancouver for a day or two.
