Travel the mighty Fraser, in search for the renowned White Sturgeon.

Head-Line Mountain Holidays proudly offers a signature heli fishing experience unlike any other in North America. The Heli Sturgeon Experience begins with a dedicated A-star helicopter for the day with a 40 minute flight through what is commonly referred to as the “Grand Canyon of the North”, featuring some of the most majestic canyonlands in southern British Columbia. Travel through time from temperate latitude rainforests and over coastal ice caps to desert like terrain and the white sandy banks of the mighty Fraser river where your guide and jet boat awaits.


Our professionally qualified, experienced fishing guides operate certified and safety equipped jet boats, thus allowing you to travel the mighty Fraser in search for the renowned White Sturgeon.


Your day starts with a majestic helicopter flight departing from Whistler or Vancouver, direct to a private clamp to meet your guides and embark on a river odyssey like no other. During the course of the day, you will jet boat through a 20 km section of the Fraser River Canyon, fishing from a mix of onshore, white sandy beaches or by boat in this rugged canyon terrain.


In an average fishing day you can expect to hook 5 – 8 Sturgeon averaging 3 – 7 ft in length and learn about the sturgeon tagging and stewardship program our guides support before releasing them back into the wild.


Our fishing experiences are designed with the avid fisher in mind but are also perfectly suited for the whole family and allow for a unique, personal and upfront experience with one of the oldest species on the planet.


An artisan lunch is prepared and is served by your professional guides in the comfort of our riverside clamp where your awaiting helicopter stands by heading back over a series of glaciers, alpine lakes and rivers below.

The White Sturgeon is a trophy fish which can reach lengths up to 10 ft and can weigh over 300 lbs. Best known for their acrobatics and aerial stunts, landing a Sturgeon is nothing short of exhilarating. Unlike its closest cousin the Shark, sturgeon do not have teeth and are very docile when beached, in turn allowing for personal interaction and incredible photo opportunities.


Our jet boats comfortably accommodate groups up to 6 passengers which allows everyone to fish at the same time. With these options it allows the beginner or experienced sport fishers the ability to hook and land sturgeon of all sizes. This section of the Fraser is very remote and not easily accessible by others providing a more relaxed, private experience.
