Choose from Three Options

  • $125 for a sturgeon-fishing trip for one (a $250 value)
  • $250 for a sturgeon-fishing trip for two (a $500 value)
  • $500 for a sturgeon fishing trip for four (a $1,000 value) <p>

The four-hour fishing trips, which include all necessary equipment, tour the Fraser River—typically its middle stretches between Hope and Mission. Aboard the heated aluminum jet boats, a guide aids participants as they scan, record, and measure their catches before releasing them back into the water. All participants must provide their own fishing licenses and applicable tags; for more details, see the sturgeon-fishing page.

Swiftwater Guiding

Fishing can be a solitary pursuit, but Swiftwater Guiding's team knows that sturgeon fishing is a team sport. It can take three or four people to hold a Fraser River sturgeon—the behemoths can measure up to 12 feet long and often weigh more than 1,000 pounds. Even more impressive, sturgeons are known for their verve, executing spectacular leaps when pursued, and chomping on bait so hard that bystander fish feel proud of their own table manners.

Swiftwater Guiding's heated aluminum jet boats—always helmed by an experienced guide—also pursue more docile aquatic life. Salmon trips can capture chinook, pink, coho and sockeye fish during the few days they are in the river. Fly-fishing trips, meanwhile, can target salmon or other species such as the rainbow trout, which is known for swallowing whole rainbows. The boats leisurely glide down a breezy stretch of river between Fort Langley and Hope, which was also an old fur trading route.
