Lang Nguyen was raised in Vancouver, BC. Before opening Lang’s Fishing Adventures, he was an Insurance Broker for Meier & Co Insurance Ltd. He loves interacting with people, however he realized that an office environment wasn’t ideal for him. His escape from the daily routine was fishing. When he wasn’t at work, he would be out fishing with his brother and uncle. They would explore different lakes and walk miles along the riverbank to find the best fishing spots. His hobby developed into his passion and he soon found that the outdoors was where he truly belonged. Lang quit his job and with the support of his family, he opened Lang’s Fishing Adventures.
Although there are a lot of charter companies, he knew what it took to stand out from the rest. While other companies were set in old ways, he was innovative and always tried new techniques to catch fish. Most importantly, what separates himself from other guides is his ability to connect and quickly establish trust with his clients. As much as he loves to fish, he finds it equally rewarding to teach and see others catch a sturgeon that are literally bigger than them. To meet the increasing number of clients each year, Lang recruited guides that had the same passion for fishing and for working with people. His guides are not simply employees but lifelong friends that he can always count upon. They will ensure a safe trip and always have the client’s best interest in mind. Simply put, Lang Nguyen and his team will give you a fishing experience of a lifetime.

The Chinook is the largest of the salmon species, normally weighing anywhere between 10 to 50 pounds. Chinook fishing begins in May and concludes in November. Pink Salmon comes up the Fraser River every odd number of years and usually arrive in the beginning of August until October.
Coho Salmon fishing begins in September and concludes in December. Fishing for Coho is a unique experience due to the fact that Wild Coho Salmon are a protected fish and when fishing for them you can only keep hatchery fish, which can be identified by their cut adipose fin. Last, but not least there is the Chum Salmon which runs in October until November. These fish are aggressive and fight hard. However, the fact that they are excellent smoked and their roe is the best for sturgeon fishing makes the task of fishing for them all worthwhile.

Wondering what Sturgeon are all about? Here’s some information on pacific sturgeon (white sturgeon)…
The white sturgeon (Acipenser transmontanus, meaning “sturgeon beyond the mountains”), also known as the pacific sturgeon, is a fish of the family Acipenseridae which lives along the west coast of North America from the Aleutian Islands to Central California. It is the largest freshwater fish in North America and is the third largest species of sturgeon, after the Beluga and the Kaluga. The white sturgeon is known to reach a maximum size of 816 kg (1,798 lb) and 6.1 m (20.1 ft).
The Sturgeon is a primitive, scaleless fish with an under-slung mouth. The body is long and tubular and bends upwards at the caudal peduncle to follow the upper lobe of the tail. A Sturgeon’s head is triangular and flattened from above. Bony plates protect the gill covers and throat region. Four barbels are situated just ahead of the protrusible mouth. There are five rows of bony scutes running along the body: two along the underside from the pectoral fins to the anal fin, two along the lateral line from the head to the tail and a single row along the back from between the eyes to the dorsal fin. The dorsal, pelvic and anal fins are situated in the rear third of the body. The caudal fin is asymmetric with the upper lobe about twice as long as the lower.
Sturgeons vary in colour from dark brown to green above to light brown to white below. All scute are lighter in colour then the rest of the body.
Sturgeons spend most of their time in the sea, usually close to shore and then enter estuaries of large rivers far inland to spawn. Individuals larger than 48.3 cm feed mainly on fish; smaller ones feed mainly on chironomids, but also take small crustaceans, other insects and mollusks. Feeding ceases just before spawning.
