Albany River Sturgeon Fishing
Sturgeon are one of the last few creatures from the dinosaur age that still live. They are also an endangered species and extinct in most places in North America but still common in the Albany River. Sturgeon can also reach 150-pounds in the Albany River with some getting even bigger. In 2003, there was a 153-pound Sturgeon caught about 15 miles up stream from our Albany River outpost camp on Caviar Lake. It was 15-pounds under the Ontario record. They are more common in the 20 to 60-pound range.
The Albany River is stuffed with Brook Trout, Walleye and Northern Pike. It's a great place for your fishing vacation but as an added bonus, which most lakes in Ontario can't give you, is Sturgeon. The Albany River is a clear river, which means the Sturgeon only feed at night. So what guests do is grab the chairs and some beers and sit around the fire and have a line out in the water.
You need a C.I.T.E.S (Export Permit) to bring Sturgeon meat back into the US so it's best to take a picture and let them go. A big Sturgeon will give you all the fun and excitement you need.
