Fraser Canyon / Lillooet Sturgeon
Fraser Canyon - Lillooet to Linton
Talk about dramatic scenery, Lillooet has amazing fishing with hot and dry climate
The upper Fraser Canyon between Lillooet and Linton offer sturgeon anglers a unique opportunity. The canyons are mostly made up of sand and sharp rock with spectacular views and great sturgeon fishing. The peak sturgeon fishing in this area is quite different than the lower/middle Fraser and more in line with the Lower Fraser Canyon between Hope and Hells Gate.

Peak timing for fishing this region is between July 15 to August 31, some years we can get on the water a bit sooner but on a normal year July 15 is the start of our season. Fishing sturgeon in the Lillooet area offers anglers some similar challenges to fishing the lower Fraser Canyon but in my opinion it is a bit easier on fishing tackle and our jet boats. The weather is almost always nice with very little rain fall.
Guests staying in Whistler, Pemberton, Kamloops or Merritt can easily access this area, we offer day trips with Whistler Hotel pick up and also offer accommodation packages staying in Lillooet and riverside wilderness camps.
The Fraser Canyon is divided by Hells Gate Rapid into two sections. The upper section above Hells Gate offers anglers a completely different look at the Fraser and an opportunity to experience a new fishery with some amazing sturgeon fishing. This is a great fishery for those anglers visiting Whistler or coming from the interior of BC. We also offer overnight camps and accommodations in Whistler or Lillooet area.

- 8-10 hours of guided fishing in Fraser Canyon
- Private guide and boat for each group
- Hotel Pick up in Whistler or Lillooet
- Incredible scenery
- Barbeque Shore Lunch
Cost - $400 p/p based on 3 or more anglers
