Fraser River STurgeon Fishing With Yves Bisson - FAQs
What should I bring?
You don't need to bring anything except for a valid freshwater freshwater fishing license for all guests over 15 years of age. You must also have a Sturgeon Conservation tag. A good phone or camera is also suggested.
What should I WEAR?
SPRING/Summer Sturgeon Fishing
Air temperatures could range from 20-35 Degrees Celsius throughout the day. Layering is a good idea to adjust to the temperature throughout your trip. In summer, it’s always recommended you bring sunblock & polarized sunglasses. If there's a chance of rain, bring rain gear. Yves will supply Simms G3 waders as well as Simms boots if you need to get into the water to hold your fish for the ultimate fishing photo.
FALL/Winter Sturgeon Fishing
The temperature on the water is generally slightly cooler than the surrounding land, but not as significantly different as if you were fishing in open water. Best idea is to layer your clothing, especially in the cooler months. Also, fighting a large sturgeon in the winter will certainly warm you up. Yves’ 23-ft jet boat has a covered area with a heater to make things more comfortable on cooler or wet days. Polarized sunglasses are handy on sunny days. Gloves and a hat are advisable when the weather is cooler. If it’s raining, bring rain gear. Yves provides Simms G3 waders as well as Simms wading boots.
WHERE WILL WE MEET?
The goal is to catch big sturgeon and still break away from the busy crowds, so we depart from one of two locations where this is possible. Our departure is from either Agassiz or Hope. Depending on where fishing is best at the time of your trip, Yves will let you know the point of departure prior to your trip, and send you the GPS coordinates. You can see our boat launch map under tab "Day with Yves"
WHERE DO I GET A FRESHWATER ANGLING LICENSE?
Single-day, Multi-day or Annual Freshwater Angling licenses can be purchased online. Visit the Government of BC Fishing Website for the license. Please remember to have a printed and signed copy of your license with you upon arrival. Make sure it includes a Freshwater licence and your Sturgeon Conservation Tag.
