Fraser Canyon Sturgeon
The Fraser Canyon offers the anglers an opportunity to fish a unique area that presents its own set of challenges. Instead of using that standard line weight of 150lb test we up the line strength to 200 to 250 and tighten down the drags. These canyon fish are quite a bit stronger than lower river fish and current is much faster. Although several other guides offer canyon trips, they are quite different than ours.
On all guided trips to the Fraser Canyon we offer guests an opportunity to visit an area seldom seen by another angler. 30 miles of narrow canyons, big white water, swirling back eddies and monster sturgeon await those who venture into this region. Vic Carrao owner of STS Guiding Service spends most of his time fishing this stretch of the Fraser Canyon. Vic’s passion for challenging white water, river navigation and big trophy sturgeon is quite apparent once you spend a few minutes in his boat.
If you have ever caught a sturgeon in the lower/middle Fraser you will notice quite a difference between this above pic and other pictures on our website. Canyon Sturgeon are slightly different with long pointy noses and very large girths. These fish are built for swimming in big powerful water and are much stronger than most sturgeon found on the Fraser River. If you are looking to get away from the crowds and enjoy some of British Columbia’s most spectacular scenery, this canyon trip is a must.
