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!

We had a blast. The first day of our honeymoon we did a trip with one of the guides and he got us on two 4 and a half foot sturgeon first thing in the morning. Then nothing all day except a couple missed hook sets and a fish that swam into a snag and got off. But in the... More

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed a fantastic day of sturgeon fishing, thanks to Istvan, our guide. Because of a change in weather, the fishing was slow the day we went. In spite of that, Istvan went OVER and ABOVE to ensure we enjoyed our experience and still caught fish. We are very grateful for his desire to make our... More

The fishing was spectacular. Our guide, Curtis, knew the water so well and put us on the big ones. It was a thrill of lifetime chasing down my 6'9 Fraser Valley Sturgeon. The most intense fishing of my life! I'd definitely recommend these guys. Thanks for the radical memories, Curtis!

Spent a four hour afternoon sturgeon fishing in Chilliwack on the Fraser River with Great River fishing Adventures. With Landon as our Guide we landed a five and 9 foot sturgeon. Needless to say we were over the moon and have to pinch ourselves today. Thank you Landon and company for special memories of a lifetime. D and J

These guys are friendly and knowledgeable. Dean and Chad are great guys to deal with. Four of us went for the 8-hour trip, and enjoyed ourselves very much. We caught some nice ones, good pictures, and will be going back to try and catch one of those monster ones we know are there. We also bought some jackets and hoodies,... More

This trip was fantastic in so many ways. We were fortunate enough to catch the fish of a lifetime (over 10' long), but there were so many other reasons the trip was more than we could have hoped for. Our guide's knowledge, friendliness, passion and humour were awesome and really added to the experience. The natural beauty of the area... More
