We are booking up quickly and if you want till last minute you might just be left to book with what we call Wal Mart guides. The last available because the cream are booked up. If your spending the time and money to come fishing, do it right with a Professional guide that is a member of the Fraser Valley Angling Guides Association and part of the Fraser River Sturgeon Conservation Society. If the answer is NO to either of these, they you know where you stand.

Not all that often we get to see tiny babies.

We use gear that is aimed towards Dino’s on the larger scale. Every once in a while, this happens! Its very exciting.

The picture actually make him/her look bigger than was in reality.

Of course he/she was untagged so we tagged, recorded, and release. For any dino’s that we get to tag, clients have the opportunity to adopt the Sturgeon for $100. You will receive an email update if/when they are caught again.

Money goes towards the Fraser River Sturgeon Conservation Society program to help keep the tagging program going.

We are proud and honored to announce President of Sturgeon Slayers, Kevin Estrada has been brought on as a Director for the Fraser River Sturgeon Conservation Society.

Their spawning habits, slow growth rate and the age they live till is something so unique and magnificent. Kevin is excited to continue on his protection of Sturgeon on another level.

“Thank you to the board for bringing me on and valuing my experience and dedication to the fishery. ”

– Have survived two ice-ages; are living in the Fraser River.

– Survive in both fresh and salt water.

– Have captured the imagination of hundreds of students and future ‘sturgeon stewards’, through the HSBC Fraser River Sturgeon Education Program grades 4-7.

– Rely on help from the sport fishing, recreational fishery, First Nations, government and community leaders, environmentalists, conservation experts and the public community.

Over the last decade, we the Society have made great progress identifying and addressing issues that affect the recovery of white sturgeon in the Fraser River watershed using critical data collected through our award-winning, volunteer-driven monitoring and assessment program. We have developed a curriculum based education program and public awareness initiatives to promote community understanding of white sturgeon.

As an environmental stewardship and research organization, the Society brings together a diverse community of stakeholders – leaders, all areas of government and First Nations, commercial and recreational fishing sectors, research and education – to work together and make a difference for Fraser River white sturgeon. Priority areas include: mortality, habitat erosion, technology and recruitment of juvenile stocks.

Inspired by Honourary Chair Rick Hansen, we deploy our resources and talents towards conserving and protecting Fraser River white sturgeon and their habitat. This is addressed through: the development and implementation of stewardship activities, education and public awareness initiatives; conducting research and communicating the results; and professionally addressing key issues facing sturgeon with appropriate actions.

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;)
