SURREY, B.C. – The Jurassic Classic Sturgeon Fishing Committee is pleased to announce the 2016 Jurassic Classic Fishing Derby. The tournament will take place August 19th – 21st, 2016.

The Jurassic Classic is an annual sturgeon fishing tournament on the majestic Fraser River in beautiful Chilliwack, British Columbia, Canada. Thirty professionally guided teams, consisting of 2 anglers each, will enjoy two full days of fun-filled fishing adventure and will be treated to first class hospitality, with all proceeds raised going to wild sheep projects in British Columbia.

The BCWF (BC Wildlife Federation) and WSSBC (Wild Sheep Society of BC) have teamed up with Great River Fishing Adventures to offer a world-class sturgeon fishing opportunity. This weekend is an all-inclusive experience including excellent meals, a live auction, poker tournament, awards banquet, and great prizes. This is also an amazing opportunity for affiliates to add some friendly competition to the tournament and bring home bragging rights for the year while supporting wild sheep projects.

Each team consists of two anglers, with two teams per boat. In total there are 15 boats, 30 teams, and 60 fishermen. Great River Fishing Adventures has a fleet of twenty modern river jet boats and will provide professional fishing guides throughout the weekend.

All funds raised by the Jurassic Classic Sturgeon Tournament will be directed toward projects that will further wild sheep initiatives in British Columbia. BC is well known for its diverse sheep populations with two Thinhorn species of Stone’s and Dall Sheep, as well as both Rocky Mountain and California Bighorns. The BCWF and WSSBC are dedicated to supporting wildlife, habitat, and conservation projects. Through this joint collaboration, fundraising dollars will be directed toward wild sheep in BC and 100% of the profits from this event will be put towards ‘keeping sheep on the mountain.’
