Prizes and Awards:

  1. First place: for Boat Teams is a trip for 4 to Langara Fishing Lodge valued at over $22,000.00. To level the playing field, while helping with our science and data needs, this prize will be awarded using a new format. Total length in centimetres of all fish caught. A bonus of 5cm for each new tag applied to all fish under 70cm will be added to your total. With this new format the top prize could be won by any Team anywhere on the river and strategy can be applied to how you choose to fish. As an example, a Team with lots of small fish could win over Teams with a few bigger fish. Your Team chooses how to fish, target big fish? A bunch of small fish? Or maybe both!

Stay tuned for more prize announcements coming soon!

We would like to invite you and your Team of 4 to participate in this year's exciting “NEW FORMAT “ Sturgeon Conservation Challenge. This year we want to provide flexibility to the participants to fish on several days in different areas of the Fraser to April 1, 2021. We have hand-selected FRSCS Accredited guides who will provide you with a quality experience.

Once your Team has paid the entry cost and registered, please contact us and we will work with you to find a day and location on the Fraser that best fits your schedule. Our Accredited guides will help to ensure you have the best opportunity to encounter a modern-day dinosaur on the day you select, based on tides, the location you choose, river conditions, etc. The Gala Awards evening will be separate from the angling experience.

You and your team will fish the Fraser River in an area selected from the list below:

AREA 1. Estuary to the Pattullo Bridge (Best on the Flood ) Based on New Westminster tide table (Ladner area is aprox 1 hour earlier)
AREA 2. Fraser From Pattullo Bridge to East end of Douglas Island Pitt River (based on Pitt -aprox 1hr and 20minutes later than NW tide)
AREA 3. East End of Douglas Island to Mission These tides are based on New Westminster Tide table plus a 1hr 20min addition
AREA 4. Mission To Chilliwack. / AREA 5. Chilliwack to Hope. / ( NOT TIDE SENSITIVE AREAS) Some spawning closures in July
