On rod and line the fight becomes a serious tug-of-war between Man Vs Fish.
White Sturgeon are native to several large North American rivers that drain to the Pacific Ocean. They primarily live in estuaries of large rivers, but migrate to spawn in freshwater, and travel long distances between river systems. White Sturgeon are commonly found in deep, soft bottomed areas of estuaries, where movements in the water column is dependent on salinity.
In the lower Fraser River, British Columbia, movement and abundance of White Sturgeon is assessed by acoustic tags and mark-recapture methods. This data shows that they are sedentary during the winter months and mobile in the spring and fall, with data indicating that they leave the Fraser River and enter the Strait of Georgia.
