Head-Line Mountain Holidays, in partnership with The Four Seasons Resorts and Residence, Whistler, is offering a unique helicopter fishing experience unlike anything offered in North America. This experience starts with a 30 minute A-star helicopter flight through some of the most majestic canyons in the Coast Range Mountains of British Columbia. Travel through time from the temperate latitude rain forest to dessert like terrain and the white sandy banks of the Fraser river where your guide and jet boat await.
Our professionally qualified, experienced fishing guides operate certified and safety equipped jet boats. Thus allowing you to travel this large river in comfort in the search for the renowned White Sturgeon.
During the course of the day we will be jet boating through a 15 – 20 km section of the Fraser River Canyon, fishing a mix of onshore off white sand beaches and by boat in rugged canyon terrain. With these options it allows the beginner or experienced sport fisher the ability to hook and land sturgeon of all sizes.
The White Sturgeon is a trophy fish which can reach lengths of 3 -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 photography opportunities.
In an average fishing day you can expect to hook into 5 – 8 Sturgeon averaging 3 – 7 ft in length. Sturgeon fishing season starts in May and runs to October with July to September providing the highest consistent catch rates.
Our jet boats comfortably accommodate small to large groups from 4 to 6 passengers which allows everyone to fish at the same time.
