About Great River Fishing Adventures
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!

l_ea_h wrote a review Nov 9
My husband went out 2 weekends in a row with GRFA. Once with his two brothers, and once with a good friend. Mitch was the guide with the group of brothers, and Dean was the guide with the good friend. Both times, my husband couldn’t express enough how wonderful, knowledgeable, respectful, and joyful they were. One of the brothers said “I felt so blessed to be doing this with my brothers, as well as with someone who respects these fish and their home.” Mitch kissed every sturgeon and thanked it for being part of the adventure before he released it back into the water. Dean was extremely happy, knowledgeable and loves to educate about the sturgeon, the water, the area, and everything in between. They described it as an experience like no other. Great communication, great equipment & safety, respectful, professional, and passionate.

My family LOVED the day and the action was amazing. Our guide Rick Stahl was outstanding, patient and made the trip special for my sons who are 12 and 25. Both were skeptical! My older son Drake does not really like fishing and Rick was able to show him how fun and exciting the sport can be. Thank you for the day, could not have been happier with your work and amazing experiences for my family. I/we will be back Sincerely Keith Henry

An Amazing fishing trip in October! If you have never Sturgeon fished this is a must and Great River Fishing Adventures is where you need to book. Everything was perfect, from check into hotel, meeting location, guides, boats and equipment. Our guides Istvan and Landon are the best. They know the river, fishing techniques to land the big ones! we'll be back again and again!

Hi Rob, Thanks for taking your time to write your review. Sturgeon fishing is one of the best "Big Game" fisheries in the world to experience. We have a great area, plentiful amounts of fish and a well rounded team who cares about your experience on and off the water. We try to check all the boxes to be as close we can to perfect and knowing you will be back to join us again says it all. We look forward to fishing with you again and creating more amazing memories. Cheers and great fishing, forever, Dean <")))><

Another fantastic day on the river with Great River Fishing! Our annual company Sturgeon fishing derby was another great success. Everything went smoothly from booking our trip with Alyssa to our day of fishing with Landon and Steve on the river. Everyone had a great time. I would highly recommend the team at GRFA for your next adventure on the Fraser River.
