Our partner has more than 30 years of experience in fishing the different types of pacific salmon such as pink, sockeye, chum, chinook, coho, but also steelhead, rainbow trout and of course the white sturgeon.
The Canadian government recognized at the end of the 90's that the sturgeon stock declined drastically and issued a mandatory catch & release legislation. Caught sturgeons are chipped or if they have been caught before, only scanned and registered. Catch location, length and estimated weight are recorded and collected centrally.
As a result of these measures, the sturgeon stock in this region is currently at a perfect level. The average length is over 1.5 metres and the average weight 100 to 200 lbs. However, colossal sturgeons of 700 lbs. and 3 metres in length have been caught as well. Our partner's record is an immense sturgeon of no less than 900 lbs!
There are several ways to go fishing. This depends entirely on the season and your wishes. Fly fishing for salmon, sea trout in the remote forests or sturgeon and salmon on the rivers by boat.
There are several boats in different sizes available for groups of 2 to 4 persons so every time the fishing trip is perfect with enough space on the fishing boat. With the guide you discuss what you want to fish the next day so you do not only have to fish for 1 species but if desired you can switch between species.
