Sturgeon Fishing

The White Sturgeon is North America’s largest fresh water fish. Reaching up to 1100 lbs, they range in size from 1-13 feet in length, sometimes bigger! Once you hook one you won’t want to stop. White Sturgeon live in the Fraser and Harrison rivers year-round. When you hook a sturgeon you better be prepared for an epic battle of a lifetime. 

White sturgeon are known to be great acrobats and will often jump clear out of the water, sometimes multiple times during the battle. They have incredible strength and are guaranteed to give you a run for your money. 

The best time to fish for white sturgeon is between March and November, please inquire for more details.

Salmon Fishing

There is nothing better than hooking one of these hard fighting fish and hearing that reel scream.There are five species of salmon that travel up the Fraser River and its tributaries.

• Chinook salmon also known as Springs or kings are the largest of the salmon species and normally are caught in the 10-40 lb range.
• Sockeye salmon also known as reds are usually caught in the 5-15 lb range.
• Chum salmon sometimes referred to as dogs are incredible fighting fish and are usually caught in the 10-25 lb range.
• Coho salmon also known as Silvers are known as acrobats and are usually caught in the 5-15lb range.
• Pink salmon also known as Humpy's arrive in our rivers in odd years 2017, 2019, 2021 and are usually caught in the 4-8lb range.

  • I’ve been fishing the Fraser River for 36 years and have yet to catch fish like I did with River Wrangler Sportfishing. They knew where to go and how to hook me up with fish. My trip was an also an education on the local sites. And for someone who is concerned about safety and comfort it was no sweat, enjoyable trip that I will never forget. Looking forward to doing it again!
