Our guides are among the very best on the river, we are known for putting customers into larger fish regularily, and for our hook up consistancy. Compared to most of our competitors, Prestige Sportfishing is not afraid to go the distance to put our clients into fish and give them the best chance at hooking up. We have high standards on what an outing should be like. With this in mind, our guides have the best results imaginable.
Sturgeon are often overlooked by anglers, as they are thought to be a large lazy sucker fish. The best parts of fishing for sturgeon are the incredibly hard battles with these monsters and the terrific aerial shows that they put on.
Sturgeon fishing in the Fraser River area of British Columbia is considered to be world class. The Fraser River area is one of the largest sturgeon production areas in the world. Given this factor, it offers anglers from across the globe the opportunity to consistently hook into these prehistoric fish 12 months of the year. A common size for sturgeon is 4 to 6 feet in length with several larger fish in the 7 to 10 foot range hooked throughout the season. Sturgeon are well known for their long hard runs peeling up to 200 yards of line off, usually leading to big tail walking jumps
While sturgeon fishing is a year round fishery on the Fraser River, we do have some peak times. April thru December are the most consistant of times on the Fraser River for Sturgeon. We have peak periods in the spring (April/Early May) when we have an eulachon run which strike the sturgeon to feed heavily and again in the fall (September-December) when the salmon are running and spawn, another great food source time which strike the Sturgeon to feed heavily and offer us some very amazing days on the water. June thru November is our prime time for catching larger sturgeon in the 7-10 foot range, and these fish are very common on our charters during this time. May-August is steady fishing with many awesome days on the river.
