The Fraser River is home to the largest population of White Sturgeon in the world and has its own distinct population on the Middle Fraser River. Experience a Once in Lifetime Sturgeon Fishing Adventure for these Prehistoric Fish that can measure up to 15 feet in length and can leap out of the river and tail walk many times once they are on your line. Once you hook a Sturgeon the battle can last several hours and may forever change the way you think about fishing. Sturgeon is the largest of all Fresh Water Fish in the World and the Strongest. All Sturgeon are strictly Catch and Release on the Fraser River. Once a Sturgeon is landed we will measure, photograph and tag them before gently releasing them back to the wild.
The First Nations people of Lillooet welcome visitors into their vibrant community: Take a guided tour of a replica Sheesh'kan (pit house), visit an active archeological site, observe demonstrations of cultural fishing along the Fraser River, participate in a traditional feast, or catch the Kaoham Shuttle.
The Kaoham Shuttle
The Kaoham Shuttle is an amazing train trip along the shores of Seton Lake, incorporating culture and history, train memorabilia, and wildlife viewing and bird watching. It provides a great opportunity to see California Bighorn Sheep, bear, deer and a variety of waterfowl and raptorial birds. The Kaoham Shuttle offers charter service, sightseeing tours, and a weekly run to nearby communities of Shalalth, D'Arcy and Seton Portage. The scenic trip takes one hour from Lillooet to Seton Portage with the option of staying in Seton Portage or returning to Lillooet.
