Founded in 1988, we are one of the largest fully guided sport-fishing operators on the Fraser River and it's tributaries. Every year, thousands of tourists from all over the world visit us to experience the world-renowned fishing and natural wonder of the Fraser River in beautiful British Columbia. This calm water fishery features over ten species of sport fish and year round opportunities for the novice and expert angler alike.

We fish the #1 Sturgeon, Salmon and Trout rivers in the World. We specialize in multiple styles of fishing to meet the needs of any angler. Have you ever caught or touched a real living Dinosaur? We specialize in targeting White Sturgeon, a species that can grow over 20 feet in length and over a 1000lbs. These magnificent creatures make spectacular jumping displays and runs that will excite every angler. We also fish for all 5 species of Wild Pacific Salmon and boast the largest and most experienced team of fly fishing guides on the entire river. We exclusively travel to the Upper Pitt River and Lillooet River to chase sea run Dolly Varden, Bull Trout, Rainbow and migrating Salmon. When fishing with us the opportunities are endless and each adventure is personally customized so you can focus on the reason you are here......to fish!

Went out in mid November with a group of 8 guys and two boats chartered by Landon and Dave. It was a cold windy day, but it wasn't long until the Sturgeon started coming in. Dave, from the sounds of the guys with him, was super knowledgeable and had the fish coming in almost right away. My boat with Landon... More

We came out on a chilly November Sunday and was dressed in layers and expecting it would be a lot of sitting still and not really getting any action on any of the rods, boy were we wrong. We went with Landon, 19 year old whom must have been a fisherman in his previous life, as he was very professional,... More

We couldn't have asked for a better day. From the moment we got to the launch things were perfect. Ben was an amazing guide who put us on fish almost immediately. He was super laid back and made us feel at ease. Our boat had varying experience levels, but Ben was able to make it a great day for all... More

Knowlegable, proffesional and made everyone in the boat feel confortable on the boat. 4 guys on the boat ranging from avid angler to first time Sturgeon... More

The fishing trip of a lifetime. If you are lucky, as I was, you may catch a 10-foot sturgeon. Even a modest 7-footer puts up a tough fight. The fishing boat and equipment are first class and the guide looks after your every wish. Being on the river is itself a pleasant time. I have had a number of fun... More

What a great birthday present! Although it was pouring down rain our excitement was not dampened at all! Our fishing guide, Istven, was knowledgeable, friendly, and very competent... Would definately use this company and guide again! R. G. Wray

Excellent place for fishing. you can see them right there. so many of them that you just want it to catch them by hands. very good experience and nice place just to be there and either fish or just walk.

Another successful trip to Chilliwack. A really good week for the salmon on the fly, including a 40 lbs king on the fly. This has allowed me to achieve a life times goal. Without the quick thinking of Curtis, the guide, of taking to the boat to follow the fish it would never have been landed. Dean, the company owner,... More
