There’s no bigger beast swimming the freshwater rivers of North America than the white sturgeon. This is the biggest freshwater game fish on the continent and within 90 minutes of Vancouver you’ll be on the best sturgeon fishing river in the world! The Fraser, British Columbia’s largest river, is home to a healthy population of these unbelievable fish and our day trips from Chilliwack will put you into the heart of some of the river’s most consistent fishing. Marc guides on the stretch of river from Yale to Mission, a distance of approximately 65 miles (110 km). From the narrow upper stretches where the river runs hard, to the smooth broad river in the lower sections, each reach of river offers a change in views and fishing strategies. The Harrison river is another significant waterway that joins the Fraser just east of Chilliwack, and offers sturgeon and salmon fishing opportunities during appropriate seasons. In terms of water clarity, you couldn’t ask for two different rivers. The Fraser runs silty nearly all year due to snow and glacial melt, while the Harrison runs clear and can be a beautiful green to blue colour at different times of the year. Techniques for sturgeon rely heavily on weighted baits from an anchored boat in likely sturgeon holding areas. If you’re looking for a true fishing thrill and a unique to British Columbia experience then our Chilliwack sturgeon trips will put you into excellent fishing with the most experience sturgeon guides in BC. The best time for sturgeon fishing in British Columbia is late March though November, with most of the fish average between 100 and 300 pounds, with monster sturgeon pushing well above. That is the excitement of Fraser River sturgeon fishing; you just never know what is prowling around underneath your boat!
