Unbelievable Squamish River Salmon Fishing  5 Stars – Reviewed 13 November 2013

fly fishing, salmon fly fishing, fly fishing guides, fly fishing guides vancouver, fly fishing guides fraser river, salmon fly fishing canada, salmon fly fishing bc, chum salmon  I was attending a conference in Vancouver and a buddy talked me into going on an impromptu fishing trip with Brian our guide from Silversides Fishing. I was completely unprepared to go fishing, but Brian said no worries, that he could outfit me – and he did. Unbelievable “catching” day, with multiple Chum hookups for both Zack and myself, with a number at 20 lbs, so needless to say, quite the experience.

Free hotel pickup available for Jan to April Bull Trout or Steelhead trips.

Salmon Fly Fishing Trips

1. Fall Salmon Fly Fishing trips on the Fraser River and Harrison River 2017

Inquire/Book

Scroll down for Rates

These guided fly fishing trips require our 21 – 24 foot jet boats to access only the finest locations along the many key gravel bars of the Fraser or Harrison Rivers in the Chilliwack – Mission area. Trips depart from Mission or Kilby(60 min east of Vancouver). Your Fraser Valley fly fishing guides are Jason, Mike and Brian Mack. Brian and Mike have a combined 40+ years experience and Jason is a past world champion in flyfishing competitions and is a magician with a spey rod.

Pink Salmon – September 2017

Pink Salmon invade the Fraser River by the millions in September 2017 and are perfect for single hand rod flyfishing. Our fly fishing tackle is perfectly set up so you will have amazing results. Catches of 50+ fish per day happen here under the right conditions.

Chum Salmon – October 7 to November 15

Chum Salmon also invade the Fraser River and it’s tributaries like the famous Harrison and Stave in the Fall. Chums are perfect for fly fishing due to their aggressive behaviour. They fight like crazy and will certainly burn your arms with their relentless stamina! Catches of dozens per rod each day are common. Chums can be caught with our single hand rods or on your own double hand/spey or switch rods. 8 – 9 weights are perfect and essential. We supply all our own custom tied flies.

Coho Salmon – October 7 to November 7

Coho Salmon are a sucker for a properly presented stripped fly on a single hand rod. We know, we perfected the art back in the 90’s. Although numbers of Coho do not rival those of Pinks or Chum they are a passion for many anglers due to their acrobatic battles and silvery beauty. We fly fish for them throughout the Fraser Valley according to their presence/location. This could be on the Harrison River, Stave River, Fraser River or some ‘other’ spots we know.

Chinook Salmon – Sept 15 to October 7

This is a tight window for Chinooks on the Fraser River. We fly fish for them on a few key gravel bars where they hold in water that requires a 8-10 weight double hand/Spey rod only. They are challenging to get even for experts but the reward is BIG! ‘By catches’ of Chum & Pink Salmon are likely to keep you busy in the meantime.

Why choose Silversides for your Flyfishing trip?

We like to think that No fish is safe! Our roots are founded in fly fishing. It was an obsession for owner Brian Mack 30 years ago and still is. This is why we only choose flyfishing guides that have that same dedication and skill level. Fish have come rather easily to our guests rods for many years as a result of our relentless pursuit of techniques, patterns and presentation. You will be put in front of fish on prime locations on the river using only top quality setups. Everything is set up right from the flyline all the way to hook. You also receive our helpful coaching and pointers. All equipment on our guided fly fishing trips include top names like Simms, Orvis, Hardy, Rio, Scientific Angler and Galvan. Results matter. Many of our guests have had days on the river that simply blew away all expectations. 100 fish days have been recorded on several occasions including 3 times in August 2015 for Pink salmon. Chum & Coho salmon hookups have broken 30 fish per rod/day on several occasions in October – November. Clients have landed over 30 Bull Trout in a single day too. This is in part due to proper trip planning, abundance of fish and experienced guiding. Call 1-604-864-5445 for info on booking a guide.
