Adventure driven professionals ready to hook you up
The Fraser River is home to North America's largest freshwater game fish - the white sturgeon. Our guides are dialed in, and consistently hooking clients up with these magnificent ancient fish. Sturgeon are explosive fighters often jumping multiple times when you engage with them in a battle causing you to hang on for dear life. These fish are active feeders; not always scavengers but hunters of live prey. Virtually unchanged for 200 million years, sturgeon fish are true living dinosaurs that can reach upwards of 15 feet in length and weigh up to 1800 pounds. An experience every fisherman/fisherwomen needs to cross off their bucket list. Sturgeon fishing really starts to heat up in early spring as the first food sources enter the river. The fishing remains great right until the end of November.
Our main guide boat is a 20 foot Custom Weld Cobra, powered by a Chevy 350 HP engine. It comfortably fits four people plus the captain. We are equipped with the latest technology - a Helix 10 Side Imaging depth sounder and GPS. We provide all appropriate safety equipment and top of the line fishing gear. Waders, rods, tackle and bait are provided on all fishing charters.
Every year millions of salmon migrate up the Fraser River to their birth streams to complete the salmon life cycle - hatch, migrate, spawn and die. With this, the Mighty Fraser offers a host of world class fishing opportunities. Here you will find chinook, sockeye, pink and coho salmon. Chinook salmon can weigh up to 50 lbs. We offer many different techniques to target salmon here: spey fishing, float fishing, fly fishing, bar fishing and spin fishing. Our salmon season usually starts early August and runs right till the middle of November. We will accommodate any style or skill level when it come to salmon fishing.
We offer 4, 6, and 8 hour charters. Accommodations, airport pick up and lunches can be arranged upon request. Large groups and multiple day trips will be quoted upon request.

Anyone 16 yrs and over will require a freshwater fishing license to angle in British Columbia. Also, a conservation stamp is needed for the species you intended to target. For example - sturgeon, salmon, steelhead. Follow this link to buy a fishing licence: http://www.fishing.gov.bc.ca/
When salmon enter the river, sturgeon really begin to feed aggressively. When we have a harvest opportunity for salmon, we often fish Salmon half the day then finish up with sturgeon, with great success.
At Mainlanders, children under 16 yrs, fish for free. These children must be accompanied by an adult.
Since 1994, 65,000 different sturgeon have been tagged by fishing guides on the Fraser River. This healthy population is why we have this world class catch and release fishery.
