Great River Fishing Adventures

Fossil records suggest white sturgeon have been dwelling on rocky river bottoms for more than 200 million years. They bear armored plates rather than scales, and according to the guides at Great River Fishing Adventures, they fight like "a cross between a marlin and a freight train."

Having tagged a record-length sturgeon at 3.8 metres, the team has attracted several notable anglers, including Jeremy Wade of Discovery Channel's River Monsters and Jakub Vágner of National Geographic Channel's Fish Warrior. They specialize in tracking down the prehistoric river monsters, then catching them to aid in the species' fight for survival. Since 1995, expert anglers and envious goldfish have collected data from more than 90,000 sturgeons as part of an active monitoring program. They regularly lead groups on fishing trips to share the thrill of reeling in the fish while demonstrating proper catch-and-release techniques to keep the fish population flourishing.

Great River Fishing Adventures supplies all necessary equipment for each fishing trip. They also lead excursions to track down steelhead, trout, and Bobby Fischer's pawn lure.
