For those of you few people not on social media, we will be sharing with you some unique moments we have experiences over the years. Here is our smallest Sturgeon we have caught, by pure luck! This trip also saw one of our largest fish of 2015 as well measuring 9’7 fork length.
Fork Length is the proper measurement when dealing with Sturgeon. Some guiding companies and other anglers have been looking for some fame and attention by measuring them the total length then run to the media.
As we are a major contributor to the Fraser River Sturgeon Conservation Society, we uphold a high standard when collecting our data for the Tagging Program. This includes measuring them properly so we can collect accurate information for the health of the fishery.
Measure Fork Length with a tight tape and pectoral girth. No fishermen stories, if you know what your doing and put your time in, you won’t need to lie;)
