Accolades from our worldwide anglers:
Our 6 days on the Fraser river were awesome, Brian and Mike were fantastic guides. The hotel was nice, roomy and clean, food fantastic. I highly recommend Silversides and we will definitely be coming back.
David E – London, England, July 2018
We had a fantastic time fishing at Silversides with Brian. Our boys caught several fish each and 3 being 6′ plus. Also had numerous hits throughout the day which kept things exciting. Brian is a knowledgeable fisherman and is focused on putting you on Sturgeon. His instructions were great as we had never been for sturgeons. The boat is comfortable and clean. Also, The room accommodations at the Mission Best Western were very nice. Close to dock with plenty of places to eat close to site. Thanks also to Louise for making it easy to arrange and answering all my questions in the months prior to the trip.
Our Family had a great time with Brian and Silversides. We highly recommend chartering with them. We will go back again soon!
Thank you Brian.
Scott F – Pennsylvania, USA
On April 2nd, 2018 our group of 3 went White Sturgeon fishing with Silversides Fishing Adventures. In two hours we had 6 sturgeon. Our total for the day was 10. Our guide Brian was excellent and very knowledgeable. He put us on the fish. The boat and gear was excellent. We would highly recommend Silversides Fishing Adventures!
Thank you: Laurie, Ralph & Yvan – Manitoba, Canada
Booked Brian and another boat for 3 days fishing late October.
He found the salmon and was constantly changing /tying lures and flies to ensure the fishing was constant.
Best 3 days fishing for a very good price we had whilst spending 10 days in the area.
By far the best value for money company (we used 3 different companies whilst in Canada ).
Hairzy – United KIngdom
Simply amazing only begins to describe a fishing trip of a life time. First class pick up and drop off to and from the airport and the hotel. Then theirs the fishing. Oh my god its out of this world. Dave and myself said before the trip just catching a sturgeon would be great but to catch a hundred pounder each would be awesome. At the end of day one we had both smashed it with fish to 280lb! In 6 days we had 16 fish with only 3 under a 100 lb, 6 over 200 lb and the biggest an amazing 375 lb! The guides Brian and Mike were some of the best guides I’ve ever come across. A huge thank you to Brian Mike and Louise. You run a first class outfit.
Paul Wheeler – London, England
We can always count on Silversides Fishing Adventures to get us into big fish. Brian’s methodical approach and attention to detail sets him apart from other guides. If you want to fish with a rock star who is as obsessed with big fish as you are, then Silversides Fishing Adventures is your only choice. My fishing partners and I come back year after year for a reason: Brian hooks us up!

Fraser river fishing holidays for giant Sturgeon
The Planet’s Best Freshwater Big Game Fishing!
In the Sturgeon Capital of Earth – Mission, British Columbia
Size and brute power is everything here !!
Our Fraser River White Sturgeon will average 5 to 7 feet but we routinely get fish over 8 feet or 300 pounds plus. Then there’s the real River Monsters. These leviathans are enormous. We’re talking 800 lbs and more. Every season a few of our guests will hook into a Sturgeon that likely exceeds 1,000 lbs. These battles go on for a long time, often hours. Typically the fish will endure and win but the will to overcome these monsters is real for our guests. One day someone will break the unofficial rod & reel record for the Fraser River(12 ft 4 inches and 1,025 lbs).
Best Times for Fraser River White Sturgeon
Peak season is March 15 to November 15 although we catch them year round. There are some minor peaks and valley’s within this time frame but overall the chance for getting fish is about 100% on any given day.
» Keep these 2 overlooked time slots in mind as they offer extremely good fishing: April 1 to 30 and October 7 to November 21.

fraser river fishing holidays for Salmon
Float fishing, Fly Fishing, Spinfishing and Bar Fishing
Fantastic Salmon fishing is available from early September to late November in the Fraser River Valley!
Salmon Fishing this good is real !!
There’s 5 rivers to choose from in the Fraser River Valley. Departing from the Mission waterfront puts you in the centre of the action. Our fully licensed angling guides will put you on top of fresh Salmon that have just returned from the Pacific ocean. This is quality fishing in our humble opinion. People tell us a lot that they can’t believe how good it is.
Catch Salmon & Sturgeon same day from Sept – Nov
Pink Salmon return in 2021!
Fraser River Pink Salmon are available from early to late September in odd numbered years only. They are very easy to catch on light tackle and fly fishing rods. Insane Sturgeon fishing happens during this window.
King (Chinook salmon)
Early September to early October has bar fishing(plunking) for Fraser River Chinook Salmon but also casting lures at some river mouths like the well known Vedder River. Average size is 20 lbs but they go over 40 lbs. A jet boat is required to access the prime gravel bars and river mouths of the Fraser River in the Chilliwack or Mission area.
Chum and Coho Salmon
October 7 to Nov 15 has a prolific return of Chum Salmon.
Fishing is from the jet boat or from shore. Fly fishing for Chums is primarily from the shore. We are seasoned veterans in the fly fishing realm. We will not take you to floss or snag beat up spawners. Chum are very easy to catch with our highly experienced guides. They scrap very good and average weights are 12 to 16 lbs but they go over 20 lbs.
Sept 15 to Nov 7 has great opportunities for Coho Salmon which are best caught chucking lures or fly fishing in the tributaries or backwaters of the Fraser River Valley.
