The shear power of these fish has to be seen to be believed… if you want an amazing experience with top guides this is the company to contact.” Bob & Neil, United Kingdom

Sturgeon are prehistoric river monsters that average 50 – 200 lbs and can reach weights over 1,000 lbs!. Fraser river Sturgeon have earned their reputation as a premier sport fish because they dish out legendary battles involving tail walks and long screaming runs often over 200 yards! Perhaps this is why they’ve earned the nickname ‘Fraser river Marlin’! A Vancouver Sturgeon fishing charter is the perfect way to spend time with friends or family. Our top name jet boats are perfect for 4 guests each and you can also hire us for a multi boat group event.
