What is the best time to fish for sturgeons?

The fishing season on the Fraser River runs for a more extended period. It is legal to fish for white sturgeons any time of the year but may choose not to fish from December to February. The water is slow running, and the weather makes it difficult to be on a boat. The temperatures at this time of the year are also freezing. When the temperature gets close to freezing, it will affect the metabolism of the fish. The fish will be slow to move or to feed.

If you are lucky enough to hook a fish at this time, they will not be too active and will not put up a good fight. They will offer more fun in the warmer seasons. The fish are there any time of the year. Many people do not like to go out in the winter. The fish are not as active, and they do not want to move around as much. People do not want to deal with the harsh temperatures either. They do not want to be out in the freezing weather with a little chance of catching a fish. They would rather wait until the warmer months when the fish are more active.
