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!

Our Guide Ben was VERY knowledgeable, answering all our questions. He made 6hrs on a boat very easy and enjoyable. On the plus side we pulled a 7ft 200lb Trophy Stugeon to shore making this trip a memory that will last a life time. Thx GRFA

Kudos to Ben for an awesome fishing adventure despite tough fishing conditions. We found Ben to be an awesome guide. Very knowledgeable, experienced, fun, friendly. Couldn't have asked for anyone better! Feeling a little sore today after catching multiple Sturgeon, including a ten footer! Thanks again Ben, we will be sure to book with you again!! -Bob Stansfield and Lee... More

We had a great day on the river. Landon made our trip with his great knowledge of the fish, river, and area. We had heard the fish weren't biting that day but we had four solid bites and landed two, with our largest topping out at 7 feet. After trying a couple of locations Landon was able to find a...

Went sturgeon fishing Aug 12, 2016 with my two sons (12&15) for 6hrs. Our guide Ben was a lot of fun but only managed to find one 5' sturgeon that my oldest boy caught. Not sure if the slow fishing was due to the guides lack of knowledge to find them or the time of year or the fish just... More

I just checked one thing off my bucket list. Chad our guide was amazing and so knowledgeable. We did the Sturgeon fishing and had a blast. Fishing for creatures older than myself was so educational for all of us. Chad knew the area well and long with fishing for giants he taught us about the creatures and area. I would... More

If you have never done this ~ you must. Sturgeon have been with us since the time of dinosaurs and fishing on the Fraser through the Canyon is magical. DEAN, the best guide, has been fishing here since he was a kid, and he shares his knowledge along the way. We caught 13 sturgeon, a lucky day for sure, but... More

I booked a fishing trip for my husband for Father's Day. I bought a groupon and when I called they accepted the groupon. I agreed to pay the taxes on my credit card which was 12 $. My brother in law was going to join my husband as the groupon was for two. My sister in law inquired about adding... More

However, this fishing trip was for me...kids went as well of course but it was my highlight. Met our guide...not sure how to spell his name..Ishtka? who was not just knowledgable and willing to...
