Best Sturgeon Fishing on the Fraser River

I grew up fishing on Vancouver Island.  Mainly we did salmon fishing and trout fishing.  Fishing was my form of relaxation. We’d go camping and I would fish for hours every day.  I knew every stump, every shallow spot and every hole where we needed to get ready for the bite. 

It wasn’t until I moved to Vancouver when I tried sturgeon fishing.  I knew roughly what a sturgeon was, but had no idea that it was the largest freshwater fish in the world. And I didn’t realize that the biggest sturgeon are in the Fraser River – my back yard.  People come from all over the world to fish for the Great White Sturgeon. It’s a bucket-list fish for sure.

I first started fishing for sturgeon with a group of hockey buddies.  What an initial experience!  I thought a 4 foot sturgeon was big.  Others in our group caught 6ft+ sturgeon.

My second time sturgeon fishing on the Fraser was with my 2 brothers and my dad.  Not the best guide, and the fishing was mediocre.  The waders we used leaked, leaving me with a wet right foot for the majority of our fishing trip.

Then I went fishing with Yves Bisson.  What a different experience.  The knowledge Yves has about the sturgeon and the Fraser River are unmatched.  I can’t count the number of white sturgeon over 6ft that I’ve caught with Yves Bisson, Sturgeon Fishing Guide extraordinaire!  Every time we seem to catch at least one 7 or 8 ft sturgeon.  All his gear is new and top of the line.  No leaky waders!

If you like fishing and want to experience winding in a fish that weighs more than you do, then I’d recommend fishing for the Great White Sturgeon in the Fraser.  And if you can manage to snag a time when Yves is available, then jump at the opportunity! Yves is definitely the Best Sturgeon Fishing Guide out there!
