George’s Fraser Canyon Birthday Adventure

Posted by:

Both Jake and Bill wanted to do something special for their Dad’s 60th Birthday and both regularly visit a local tattoo shop “Inkubus Tattoo” in Grande Prairie when they seen some pictures of big Sturgeon caught by Steve Mills (owner of Inkubus) daughter and son on their many trips to our area over the years.

Once they talked to Steve and he told them about our great service then Jake contacted us directly and we set up what turned out to be an amazing 1st time fishing experience and stay in our area at the Fraser’s Edge B & B run and owned by Mike and Adrianna Jones – right on the Fraser River.

We fished 1 day in the Lower Fraser out of the Chilliwack area and then spent 2 days in the Mighty Fraser Canyon – we really enjoyed there company and they really enjoyed their great fishing days.

They are now looking for return dates this Fall and next season and I think they are a little “addicted” to those jumping big fish. They really enjoyed learning about the mark recapture program for White Sturgeon and also participated in all the scanning, measuring and tagging of the fish during their days on the river. They tagged their own virgin fish and are no longer“Sturgeon Virgins”.

We are looking forward to having them all back again and it was a great way of spending some real quality time with Dad – mission accomplished.

“Always refer to British Columbia’s Best Handling Practices when Fishing White Sturgeon in our area to ensure a healthy future for our fish”.

Cheers and great fishing, forever , Dean
