North Vancouver’s Fraser Legends Fishing has its very own motto: "Create your own legend." What could be more legendary than catching your very own Sturgeon? Even better, you’ll be able to reach your own personal world record and help conserve this incredible prehistoric fish at the same time.

The man behind your trip, Captain Peter Krahn, is a staunch supporter of the Sturgeon Conservation Society. He’s an official Sturgeon-tagger, and this respect for these creatures is at the center of the adventures he offers on board his charter.

When you embark on your trip with Capt. Peter, you’ll help with tagging, measuring, and checking the health of these magnificent fish before releasing them back into one of the mighty rivers – Fraser, Pitt, and Harrison. These fish are pretty acrobatic, so expect to witness some impressive leaps out of the water!

You’ll get to submit the information you gather on your fish to the Fraser River White Sturgeon Conservation Society for cataloging and registration of information. If you’re the first person to catch and tag a specific fish, your name will be registered as the original angler. You’ll be part of this fish’s history!

You’ll be fishing from your captain’s 19’ KingFisher jet boat, built to cruise these freshwater fishing grounds. She’s decked out with all the necessary safety and navigational gear and can accommodate up to 4 guests. Sometimes there are periods of waiting for the fish to bite, so children should be 12 years or older to join in on the fun.

Family Learn to Fish/Picnic Option or Hard Core Sturgeon Fishing Family Learn to Fish/Picnic Option: In the Family Learn to Fish/Picnic option, families with young children (3 to 10 years old) can fish for sturgeon, (usually 1 or 2 hours) and then learn to fish for smaller species and if they pack a picnic lunch or pick a lunch up at a local shoreside bistro can combine fishing with a shoreside picnic. The picnic sites are either a small sandy beach or a campground with picn

I grew up fishing on the Fraser River and became a chemical and environmental engineer specializing in environmental forensic research, legislation development and law enforcement. Throughout my life, I have worked in environmental protection and enforcing our fisheries legislation. It is only natural to make my profession my hobby and I enjoy every day out on the water. The truth is that fishing for these "Fraser River Marlin" as they are often called requires strength and stamina so it is always good to have others come out with me. I work in support of the Fraser River White Sturgeon Conservation Society, and tagging and measuring these fish and recording their health makes my passengers "Citizen Scientists" as they not only get a thrill of a lifetime but also help us collect the scientific data needed to manage this great fishery. Sharing this experience with people who love to fish and respect our wild heritage is a great way to spend the day. I look forward to meeting you.

Dominic catches a rare juvenile Sturgeon
Dominic catches a rare juvenile Sturgeon
July 16, 2024
Squeezing in a four hour morning trip so they could catch their cruise ship to Alaska in the afternoon, Dominic, his mom Jennifer and father Brian got up before sunrise and joined me on the Fraser River for some sturgeon fishing. They knew that the tides were not really in their favour but they buckled down and had the patience and fortitude to make a day of it. The first fish was a line peeler and Dominic and his dad worked hard to get it to the boat and just before we could get to measure it, the fish pulled off a "Self Release". Dominic got 95% of the thrill anyways. Some patience paid off as we looked for better spots, evaded a tugboat and barge and landed a 4 footer and a rare 45 cm fish. This little fish is the sturgeon fishing future and I am grateful they came on board to help me build up our sturgeon data inventory. Well done, and "Off to Alaska!" now. Cheers, Peter Jennifer Kovach Unique, informative, and enjoyable Went fishing on Jul 16, 2024 ________________________________________ Our family of 3 booked this fishing charter the morning before we got on a cruise ship. Peter was fantastic from the moment we booked. His communication was great and we had a game plan for the morning. Peter is a fascinating research scientist and a wealth of information. We really enjoyed hearing about his vast knowledge of the rivers and fish in the area. Our 14 year old son really enjoyed not only catching the sturgeon, but also tagging and measuring the fish. It made for a truly unique experience. We highly recommend spending a day with Peter on the water.

14 year old scores a very big sturgeon!
14 year old scores a very big sturgeon!
June 30, 2024
When Carrie called and said that they were coming for a 2nd visit to Canada and wanted to take a crack at redemption after breaking off a monster fish two years ago. She was determined to have some extra help as her 14 year old son was out for summer holidays and as he put it, "The biggest fish I ever caught was 8 lbs". Well this morning the fish didn't wait and I wasn't even through giving instructions as to what to do if a fish bites when rod #3 hammered down and the battle was on. The first fish took us 45 minutes to get to shore when it found a snag to wrap around and broke itself off. Undaunted we went out again and a few hours later when the tide finally changed in our favor that blessed fishing chaos of "the bite" ensued. Three of the four rods started bouncing, and we quickly landed a 3 footer, then pulled in a 5 ft 9" after a very feisty battle for a boat side release. That left rod #3 with Mr. Big on the line which I estimated to be in the 7 ft. range. Thankfully, Mr. Big went into a bottom sulk and didn't give us any grief till we began to retrieve in that line. Then all He__ broke loose! After almost an hour of muscle wrenching sweat our Austin team landed their fish and photo of a life time. Harry's largest fishing experience went from 8 lbs to 7 ft 7 inches (232 cm) and 227 lbs (104 kg) As Harry's mom said later, "This was our second visit out with Peter to the Fraser River to try and hook some monster sturgeons, this time with our 14 year-old son along for the adventure! We unbelievably were able to hook three "shore fish" (Sturgeon over 5 ft (1.35 m) long), land two of them, and after an epic battle bring the 7 ft 7" one to land! Peter’s expertise, incredible patience and love of this amazing creature makes the whole experience unforgettable. We look forward to the next adventure whenever our paths cross again! Cheers - Carrie from Austin, TX
