Spent the day with River Monster Adventures and Guide Dylan Harder. I had a blast and would recommend the trip to anyone. It is done catch-and-release only as the white sturgeon is protected (both US and Canada), but each fish is tagged and then tracked for statistical purposes.
So, here are some pictures of the fish I caught today.
This is the largest, a tad under 8 feet long and about 275 lbs (or more, we didn’t weigh it). The unique thing about this fish is that it had never been caught before. At likely more than 100 years old, and the fishing pressure on the river, that is amazing to me.
Here is a picture of the river and surrounding mountains (yes the sky was that blue).
Here’s a snapshot of downtown Lillooet, BC.
Tomorrow, its back to Calgary, AB and another rest day on Saturday.
