Giant Sturgeon, Largest Freshwater Fish Ever Landed on a Rod and Reel, Caught and Released in British Columbia


A monster white sturgeon weighing an estimated 1,100 pounds and measuring 12 feet, 4 inches was caught and released on the Fraser River, a British Columbia waterway famous for its big sturgeon.

Catches of white sturgeon averaging 30 to 100 pounds are typical on the Fraser, even an occasional 250-pounder, but nothing as massive as this sturgeon, believed to be the biggest freshwater fish ever caught on rod and reel in North America…and possibly the oldest.

Estimated age of the fish is over 100 years old.
