The White Sturgeon is the largest species of sturgeon in North America, and the largest freshwater species in North America. These large fish can grow up to 6 meters long and weigh an incredible 600 kg with a prehistoric look and a potential lifespan over 100 years.
Fishing sturgeon on the Fraser River is a unique, world class experience. There is nothing like the jump and roll of a hooked sturgeon - a 250 lb catch can pull the tip of a rod in the water and that's just a small one! There are monsters in the Fraser River - and the most exhilarating catch & release you will ever hook!
- In 1995, the Habitat Conservation Trust Foundation supported a 5-year project to improve our understanding of white sturgeon biology and habitat requirements in the Fraser River. The overall findings of this study can be found in the Fraser River Monitoring Program - Comprehensive Report 1995 -1999 (PDF 6.83MB). ** Information from White Sturgeon
