Sturgeon fishing on the famous Fraser River is on now. The fish will start to fight better as the water warms past 42F by mid month, and by later May its game on until mid November. June-July we get lots of very aggresive 5-8 footers that fight like a cross between a oversized King salmon and Tarpon. Sturgeon are bottom feeders but don't let that fool you, they do NOT fight like a bucket of rocks. This is a common myth associated with any bottom fish but is often false with some species.

We do have lots of space left for June-November Sturgeon packages(with lodging). We have been told that we are one of the best guides for this fishery, primarily in June-July when many struggle.
