Fishery Fishing Fishing tours


The Fraser drains a 233,000 km² (85,000 sq mi) area. Its river system products the greatest number of salmons in the world. We can also find the big population of white sturgeons. Thanks to rigorous protection of the river Fraser and fishes at British Columbia coast, river Fraser is the most important salmon river on our planet. There we can fish Pacific salmons, rainbow trouts and their migrant type –steelhead. Gigantic sturgeons are waiting for hunters of really big fish.

White sturgeon

White sturgeons belong into very old group of fish. Sometimes we can hear the name of "life fossils". The most of sturgeons are in danger because of oversized hunt (caviar) and because of their life conditions. White sturgeon (Acipenser transmontanus) is rigorously protected and its numbers are regulated. They live in the western coast of America from California to Alaska. Sturgeons and salmons flow to Fraser river from the month of July. Salmons are very important component of their feed. The main season for sturgeons is the season from August to December. All caught sturgeons have to be released back to the water. Fishing guides who accompany their fishermen are required to own the licence, respect the strict rules, do measurement and marking of caught fishes. Over 43 000 of sturgeons were marked.

The body of these long monster can grows up to 5 m and weights 800 kg. Even though it seems to be clumsy, sturgeon can jump and be very fast. Standard size of hunted fish is from 1 to 2,5 m (10-150 kg). You can catch about 20 sturgeons in the autumn days. Our guides provide complete equipment. Bar fishing of sturgeons takes place from docked boat f with 50-80-tiliber rods with multipliers. We use salmon pieces or salmon spawn as fishing baits.
