The Silversides team of Fishing Guides

All our fishing guides are licensed and insured and have to meet our high standards of productivity, friendliness and experience.

Our primary goal is
to be excellent,
not big.

We only hire the best we can find even if it means postponing bringing on new team members. Our current team is very impressive with amazing abilities and accolades in sport fishing and fly fishing.

All our fishing guides are top guns in their field. So we can always provide you with the finest Sturgeon fishing, Salmon fishing, Steelhead fishing and especially fly fishing!

Meet the Captain
Brian Mack

Owner/Operator & Head Guide

Brian established Silversides in 1996 after working for a few years at some of BC’s finest coastal fly-in Salmon resorts such as Ole’s Hakaii Pass, Rivers Inlet Lodge and West Coast Resorts.

He is an avid outdoors person with a particular interest in sport fishing and lately outdoor writing. Brian runs a 21 foot Customweld ‘Storm’ jet boat powered with a 5.7L V8.

Brian fishes and guides for just about everything in this part of BC. That includes White Sturgeon, Salmon, Steelhead and Trout. He has fished a lot of waters in BC. Throughout the Fraser River Valley and Vancouver area he has extensively fished the Squamish, Fraser, Chilliwack/Vedder, Harrison, Chehalis rivers plus quite a bit on the ocean too.

On his spare time he really enjoys sitting in a float tube pursuing Rainbow Trout on BC’s interior lakes.
