Fraser River Sturgeon Holidays and Charters
2016 should be another great year, as always spring and fall are the two best season for fishing down in the Mission area and the Fraser Canyon is best from late July through to early October with August /September being the two best months. We will be offering our same day trips from Mission but have also added day trips and packages staying in Harrison Hot Springs and Chilliwack. With our new affiliation with BCSFG we now have access to some very affordable packages in these locations.

Already we are seeing a record number of early season bookings and encourage you to book early if you are wanting to experience the amazing Fraser Canyon. Vic Carrao will once again be running his 28ft twin engine jet boat through the canyon up to Hells Gate and catching those long nose Sturgeon that are unique to the Fraser Canyon. Rates have remained intact for 2016. The rate for the Full day remains at $275, please see our canyon page for more details. http://www.guidebc.com/sturgeon_canyon_lillooet.asp
