John Wilson fishing sturgeon fishing on the Harrison River

The mighty Fraser River is the main artery of millions of migrating salmon that pass through on the way to the spawning grounds. This river is home of the long lived white sturgeon, the largest fresh water fish in North and South America. These monster fish grow to over one thousand pounds and live nearly 200 years. They are considered to be one of the most spectacular fresh water sports fish, having the reputation for their size, strength, and impressive jumps.
