Juvenile Sturgeon Tagging
Join us for a typically successful and busy day on the water angling for juvenile white sturgeon on the Fraser river. This trip will appeal to the young and the old, the new and the experienced. This day of angling will give all anglers and budding conservationists an opportunity to participate in “citizen science” by locating, angling and tagging the younger size classes of sturgeon. Current information is lacking about the abundance of the younger age classes of sturgeon. This is an excellent opportunity to learn about sturgeon from an experienced Fraser river fisheries technician and sturgeon tagging volunteer (since 1995). This trip is perfect for the family outing. Average size of fish is 20 – 40 inches (50 – 100cm), and are manageable for all anglers regardless of size or skill!
Trips are available December to April. Heated and covered boats keep everyone warm and dry.
DID YOU KNOW?
Steelhead are a rainbow trout that go to the ocean, grow considerably larger than their freshwater counterparts due to an abundance of available feed in the ocean, and return to their river of origin 2- 3 years later to spawn. Unlike salmon, steelhead do not die after spawning, and can complete more than one spawning cycle in their lifespan.
Cascade Fishing Adventures was started in 1990, and is now enjoying its 30th birthday. If you are considering a fishing trip to the Fraser river and its valley tributaries, we invite you to give us a call and allow our experience to shine.
Current conditions are a result of some heavy rains melting off some significant snow accumulations from earlier in the month of January. Local waterways, including the Fraser, are at higher than normal levels. With some drier weather patterns, we should see the rivers drop and clear up somewhat.
Fishery options include some sturgeon fishing, specifically juvenile sturgeon for the purpose of tagging and data collection (see In Season offerings), steelhead and cutthroat trout.
The juvenile tagging fishery is done on the Fraser river and utilizes the jetboat, while steelhead and some cutthroat trips are done on foot.
As the days start getting a little longer, we will be able to access other fisheries that provide excellent trout and char opportunities, particularly on the fly.
Whether you are looking for a day trip fishing or you want to stay longer, we can arrange everything from your pickup at the airport in a limo, to your hotel accommodation and the best guided fishing tours in the Fraser Valley.
