Yves is absolutely incredible! Could not recommend him more. We went out as a family and the fishing, the lunch, the full experience was top notch. We had the BEST day and it was all thanks to Yves. Women, men, kids - this is fun for everyone. It truly doesn't get better then this when you're on the Fraser. We will 100% be back! Thanks Yves!

I just wanted to put this out so that everyone in the world can see! Yves is not just an outstanding guide but he is a stand up guy. He will make your dream of catching a giant fish come true there is no doubt about that! I got in contact with him over 2 years ago about setting up a charter and I tell you what… he moved mountains so that when I finally made it to British Columbia I could catch a fish of a lifetime. It has been my dream to land a giant white sturgeon ever since I was a child. Yves put my girlfriend and I on the craziest sturgeon bite ever! We not only doubled up at the same time but also, caught a wild fish that was never tagged! So having the opportunity to be apart of the conservation program in BC was quite an honor. Being able to give back to the fishery by being a part of this project was so rewarding. As an avid angler I really believe that conservation is the saving grace to see all of the species of fish thrive so that we can later in the future have the opportunity to catch and share memories like this with loved ones. Yves has all the correct tools you will need to land an absolute monster! The boat is top notch, the fishing gear is the newest and latest, he brings snacks & drinks, and even brings boots with waders so that if you don’t want to get wet but have the experience of being up close and personal with one of this prehistoric fish you have the ability to do so. Yves is such a well mannered individual and made this experience one that I will remember for a lifetime. So again I reiterate if you’re looking for a trip of a lifetime and the ability to catch your dream fish YVES STURGEON CO is the way to go to!

Yves is hands-down the best guide you can ask for. I have been multiple times with Yves (and have brought all different levels of experience, including first-timers and avid fisherman) and the experience has been nothing short of spectacular every time. No matter the weather. It has turned into an annual trip for many of my friends and family. We even booked a corporate trip with our office, and it was the ultimate team building adventure.

Cannot speak highly enough of his professionalism, knowledge, and general passion for his craft, always going above and beyond to ensure you have a great trip ... and the Gourmet BBQ Lunch is amazing!

We refuse to book with any other guide.

The best guide on the river. I’ve caught over 25 fish with Yves, and 24 of them were over 6’ long…. Highly recommend

Booked a day with Yves to celebrate my fathers 50th. WOW. What an amazing experience with an absolutely incredible guide. Yves had us on big fish all day providing us with some of the most special memories that will last a life time. Yves made every effort to insure we had the best opportunity and is truly an awesome guide who is very good at what he does. I would recommend Yves 100 out of 100 times.

We booked a father/son trip almost two years ago to celebrate my son's graduation from college. Unfortunately, we were only now able to enter the country to execute the trip. It was worth the wait! Yves Bisson is a magician. He seemed to make sturgeon appear from nowhere. We arrived at a swollen, muddy, raging river at flood stage and I was concerned we would struggle due to the conditions. My concerns were proven wrong when had a huge fish on within 5 minutes of dropping anchor and the action never let up all day. Yves worked tirelessly to make our trip enjoyable and comfortable. He is a true conservationist and taught us proper handling and release methods. We scanned all of our fish for tags and were able to learn the history of those that had been caught previously. Two of our largest fish had never been caught before.
Yves boat is set up perfectly for fishing. It has a nice enclosure to protect against the elements that can be removed in nice weather.
The best thing about Yves is his personality. When you spend 8 hours in a boat with someone you want to feel comfortable. Yves is a really nice person who is really easy to get along with. You show up as a stranger and leave feeling like part of his family.

I booked a fishing trip for my husband and sons-in-law with Yves. They had nothing but great things to say about their experience, from his professionalism to his knowledge and even their lunch. Yves came highly recommended to me, I'm happy to do the same.
