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!
Yves professionalism, breadth of fishing knowledge, and dedication to conservation will ensure your group enjoys an amazing trip. Yves has over 15 years of experience as a Fraser River sturgeon fishing guide with over 18,000 hours on the Fraser River and it tributaries, and that experience and attention to detail is validated by an over 99% catch rate on day trips. Yves has personally scanned/tagged over 14,000 fish since he started working with the Fraser River Sturgeon Conservation Society back in 2003.
I have been out a few times sturgeon fishing on the Fraser River, with different guides. Yves is by far the best guide. He really knows his stuff and cares for the well-being of the sturgeon fishing industry. I would totally recommend anyone who wants to try sturgeon fishing to go with Yves Bisson.
