The North Saskatchewan River sturgeon fishing is excellent as water levels are rising from our latest rain fall. I had a couple hours of daylight to burn so I went sturgeon fishing. Sturgeon could be seen feeding just below surface and jumping out of the river as the rain came down. 1hr later I had boated 4 Lake Sturgeon, Walleye, Shorthead Redhorse, and some beaver cuttings.

The North Saskatchewan River Watershed had the smell of a forest fire in the air this morning. Tall individaul pillars of fog mixed with smoke rose like giant candles on flame as the sun tried to penetrate the smoke filled sky. Water levels had gone up over night as floating debris dotted sections of the river as I guided the boat to a spot, wet a line and instantly had to set the hook. Pain shot through my forearm as the sturgeon launched up and clear of the water. It turned into a couple good hours of fishing with 3 sturgeon including Walleye,and Silver Redhorse being boated. The North Saskatchewan River remains turbid and the temperature of the water is a mild 23 celcius.

North Saskatchewan River Sturgeon fishing girls Destiny and Katie joined my daughter Morgan on their very first fishing trip. It was our annual father daughter bring some friends sturgeon fishing adventure. The excitement of the girls voices could be heard over the pulse of the jet boat as we headed out on the river to locate sturgeon. It is the first year Morgan was old enough to buy a fishing license and she has caught hundreds of fish prior to this. I sat back with great pride as I watched her show her friends Katie and Destiny how to gear up for sturgeon. Lines where cast and within ten minutes we had a North Saskatchewan River sturgeon triple header. The sound of screaming girls rang out across the River and the excitement of bodies dancing in the boat to avoid crossed lines made for total chaos. It was an extra special day as Morgan boated her 200th Sturgeon and her friends got hooked on fishing. After 2hrs of sturgeon fishing and 12 boated sturgeon later we decided to beat the heat and go swimming.

After purchasing a North Saskatchewan River Sturgeon fishing charter they donated it to their local Innisfree fish/game club for their fundraiser and also booked a sturgeon fishing charter for themselves. It was great to have them back in the boat to share a beautiful day on the North Saskatchewan River fishing for Lake Sturgeon. The river was dropping throughout the day as we moved around to cool off from the mid day heat and locate sturgeon. In 3hrs they had numerous hookups and boated 11 sturgeon and a few Shorthead Redhorse.

Clients rescheduled today due to weather. In the evening rain clouds started to breakup so I went looking for Sturgeon. Just got anchored out as anvilhead clouds started to build right around me. The clouds drifted me back to my years as a big game guide in the South Nahanni Mountains and a hot summer day that rapidly turned into a blizzard and for me the true meaning of one essentail in life, Shelter. Trapped in the open on top of a Mountain in a small back pack tent with a client and my pack dogs we survived the 3 day blizzard only from the dogs body heat. The rod tip began to bend outlined in the anvilheads as the sturgeon began to delicately feed. I sat sheltered from the pending storm under the boats canopy. Life is good sturgeon on and 9 sturgeon later it was dark.
