Not far from Sasquatch Mountain is amazing fishing! Fresh water abounds in this area which means there is salmon, trout and sturgeon fishing available within a short distance. 

  • white sturgeonSturgeon Fishing

The mighty Fraser River (and the Harrison River), is known for it’s White Sturgeon fishing (catch and release). Booking a charter is the best way to fish sturgeon. They say the best months are April- June and September- November but there is no closed season, so you can find someone to take you out almost anytime you are ready to go. The health of the sturgeon in the Fraser River is so good, it is one of the only areas in BC where you are allowed to catch and release this incredible fish but special care must be taken so the fish is able to survive. Do not take the sturgeon out of the water. For photo ops, get into the water and hold the fish in the middle of it’s girth while it is still immersed in water. Do not hold the sturgeon by it’s tail. Remove the hook as quickly as possible and as gentle as possible. 

  • Salmon on the FraserSalmon & Trout FishingThe Harrison River, a short jaunt from Sasquatch Mountain is an angler’s dream for fishing for salmon and trout. There are five species of salmon in this river, which feeds into the Fraser and is a spawning ground (hence why the bald eagles flock here every winter). Cut-throat trout (there is a fishery in this area) enter the river in March as they feed on the salmon minnows.

    If you love to fish, take time to enjoy a day on the river (either Harrison or the Fraser). We recommend a Google Search to find the perfect guide for your adventure. There are many to choose from.
