Spring is a fantastic time of year to go sturgeon fishing on the Fraser River in British Columbia. As the weather warms up and the days get longer, sturgeon begin to migrate from their wintering areas in the deeper waters of the river to their spawning grounds in the upper reaches. This creates an excellent opportunity for anglers to target these prehistoric giants.

Sturgeon can grow to be enormous, with some specimens exceeding 12 feet in length and weighing over 1,000 pounds. As such, catching one of these fish can be a truly unforgettable experience. Guided fishing excursions are available for those who want to maximize their chances of hooking into a sturgeon, as our experienced guides know the best spots on the river and have the right equipment to help you land one of these behemoths.

Fishing for sturgeon requires patience and skill. These fish are bottom-feeders and tend to be less active in colder water temperatures, so anglers need to have a good understanding of where sturgeon are likely to be found and what types of bait and rigs are most effective. This is where a knowledgeable guide can be invaluable, providing tips and tricks to help you increase your chances of success.  Guided fishing excursions include all necessary equipment, such as rods, reels, and bait. Our packages range from day trips to multi-day packages that include lodging, meals, and transportation to and from the river. This can be a great option for those who want to make the most of their time on the water and experience all that the Fraser River has to offer.

Overall, springtime sturgeon fishing on the Fraser River is a must-do for any angler looking for a challenging and rewarding fishing adventure. With guided fishing excursions available, even novice anglers can enjoy the thrill of landing a massive sturgeon on one of the most beautiful rivers in British Columbia.
