Best Times for Sturgeon Fishing

Sturgeon fishing on the Fraser River is pretty consistent year round but the best time to target these big sturgeon is between the months of March and November.

Spring Sturgeon Fishing – This is when we we high water on the Fraser River due to melting snow. This gets sturgeon moving, out of their winter lull period and actively feeding again. It’s not uncommon to have double-digit sturgeon days on the Fraser River in the spring months as the fish become very active.

Summer Sturgeon Fishing – Summer is when most people plan their BC sturgeon fishing trip. Weather and river conditions are consistent and fishing on the lower and upper Fraser rivers is fantastic. This is a great time of year to plan a sturgeon fishing trip, just remember to book early as spots fill up fast.

Fall Sturgeon Fishing – Sturgeon fishing is fairly consistent right into the fall months. Things tend to slow down in mid October and November as sturgeon gorge on the spawned out carcasses of migrating salmon. Combo’ing salmon fishing and sturgeon fishing is a very popular option this time of year.

Winter Sturgeon Fishing – Winter is when sturgeon become really quite inactive and fishing is slow with often difficult river conditions.
