Read our blog article on Upper Pitt River Fly Fishing

GETTING TO THE UPPER PITT

Access to the Upper Pitt River's fly fishing paradise is by our deluxe covered jet boats located 40 minutes from downtown Vancouver on Pitt Lake. Our boats travel 30 minutes northward on this ultra scenic lake and then into the Upper Pitt River river. Prime runs hold lots of sea-run Dolly Varden & resident Bull Trout. On the remote Upper Pitt you can expect breath taking scenery, fantastic fly fishing, and wildlife such as Bears, Deer and Elk.

Helicopter trips can also be arranged. This will get you into spots where no one else can. Please ask for details.

BIG TROUT LIVE HERE!

Aggressive sea-run Dolly Varden Trout and resident Bull Trout are plentiful and they will slam your fly! Pitt River Dollies and Bulls average 2-4 lbs but have been recorded up to 17 lbs. 6 to 10 lbs are caught frequently.

CONDITIONS ARE KEY FOR SUCCESS

The Pitt River is fed by ice fields and snow pack so conditions here are subject to weather patterns. If it's not possible to go due to poor conditions we will gladly refund your $$ or find another option that pleases you.

THE BEST TROUT FLY FISHING IN VANCOUVER!

We only provide guided fly fish here during this prime window (May 15 to July 7). This is when conditions tend to be ideal. The remote setting and a 100% Catch & Release program has made this one of North America's Best Trout fly fishing venues!

Jet boating up the Pitt river

Fly Fishing on the Upper Pitt River

Salmon fly fishing in the Fraser River Valley

Our Jet Boats are required for all Fraser Valley Salmon trips

Pursue wild Pacific Salmon on the Fraser River and it's many productive tributaries such as the Harrison, Stave, Vedder & Nicomen

Swing your fly in front of thousands of migrating Chum, Coho, Chinook & Pink Salmon as they return from the ocean to start the spawning cycle. We only target the fresh ones. We won't put you on top of beat up spawners. Access is by our custom jet boats that depart from Mission or the Harrison River boat launch.

Chums, Coho & Pink salmon 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.

Most Salmon can be caught with our single hand rods or your own double hand/spey or switch rods. 8 – 10 weights are perfect and essential.

We always supply our own custom tied flies.

We also provide Fraser River multi day fly fishing packages with lodging.

Just request our free brochure today!
