For anglers seeking epic battles with the world’s largest and most powerful freshwater game fish the Fraser River outside of Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada is the premier destination on the planet! And Sturgeon “Whisperer” Yves Bisson is THE man to get you into these behemoth monsters! All 12 months of the year.
White Sturgeon have thrived in the Fraser River for millennia. Provincial Fisheries Legislation has established guidelines and conservation practices that have contributed to a world-class catch and release fishery that has gained notoriety across the globe. This model program consistently produces healthy catches of Sturgeon of between 2-12 feet in length. Sturgeon can live up to 150 years and weigh in at over 1000 pounds. You owe it to yourself to put this experience on your BUCKET LIST. It’s truly an adventure of a lifetime!

I have fished with Yves Bisson on a number of occasions, and would highly recommend him to anyone interested in sturgeon fishing on the Fraser River... His care for the sturgeon, and their conservation is exemplary, and you will get an opportunity to witness the tagging/recording program of the Fraser River Conservation Society in action with Yves!
