Fishing for White Sturgeon
As home to the world's oldest fish, the white sturgeon, the Harrison River is a big-fish draw to anglers seeking once-in-a-lifetime bragging rights. A diligent conservation program has tagged 40,000 of this pre historic species since 1999 and with a recapture rate still hovering around 50 percent, it continues to be a thriving – and ancient – fishery. The oldest white sturgeon caught near Harrison Hot Springs was 180 years old!
Most fishing enthusiasts come here for the salmon, many of which start their migration into Harrison River and across Harrison Lake as early as June.
