He’s lived in the swirling water of the Fraser River for nearly 100 years, more than 13 feet and 1,500 pounds of ancient fish Dinosaur comes to mind when first seeing white sturgeon. Especially fish of the kind that work the bottom currents of the Fraser, one of B.C.’s most powerful rivers. These are the behemoths that write fishing legends. They test an angler’s endurance and their determination to hold the rod. Encounters with these sturgeon — one of the last wild populations of its kind in the world — are measured in hours. This is not stream fishing for little leaping trout.
