Why Salmon Fishing Here?
From our Tripadvisor reviews:
“At last I found a company that delivered everything it promised”
“I hooked up on every 3rd cast, I have never seen anything like it”
“Great scenery, awesome fishing, those Pinks pull your arm off! 10/10 so good I’ve rebooked a return trip”
“Crystal clear water teeming with literally thousands of salmon and in the backdrop of towering mountains with snow covered peaks… paradise on earth”
Imagine casting your lure or fly into a river teeming with Salmon, surrounded by mountains, rainforest and Eagles!
That’s the beauty of Salmon Fishing in Southwest British Columbia. Come and Experience it !!
On the Squamish River which is 1 hour North of Vancouver you will be closely surrounded by 7,500 foot glacial capped mountains amidst a healthy vibrant west coast rainforest. Besides a ton of salmon to tempt there is abundant wildlife that call the Squamish Valley home. They include Bald Eagles, Elk, Deer, Mountain Goat, Wolf and Bears! Don’t worry they are very timid.
The Fraser River Valley which is 1 hour East of Vancouver consists of 5 great rivers that we fish. These rivers require our custom aluminum jet boats to access the prime locations where salmon are concentrated. We fish on the Fraser, Harrison, Vedder, Nicomen and Stave rivers. Scenery is in no short supply here either as are the fish.

Salmon Fishing in Squamish
A “Better Sport Fishing Experience” awaits you in this Paradise just 50 minutes North of Vancouver with fish, eagles, bears and rugged mountains!
Squamish Pink Salmon
– Starts July 2019
The Squamish River is 50 minutes North of Vancouver.
Our Squamish River guided Pink Salmon fishing trips are Fly Fishing only BUT we offer spin casting too along many of the beaches around Squamish where you can catch Ocean fresh Pinks.
It’s so easy that even beginners catch tons of fish!
Best from early October to late November. Walk n wade. Hotel pickup available.
Squamish River Chum Salmon are a special breed.
Fishing and hooking them in this stunning west coast river is also special! The Chum’s travel time from the ocean to where we fish is under 5 miles and thus these fish tend to be much brighter than usual and also much tougher! You can expect to find Chums here that top 20 lbs and have you running down the bank. Fly fishing for Squamish River Chum’s is very popular due to the ideal fly water here.
Squamish River Coho Salmon can also be caught in the lower river but also further upstream in October – November.
In the lower river we use spinners, spoons and fly’s. In the upper river it’s primarily fly fishing. Breath taking scenery awaits you here on any day of the year.

I am so happy with Brian’s service that we are returning in December to hunt Bull Trout and fish for Winter Steelhead with him on the fly. All I can say is: “5 Star Guide Service all around”. If you want to catch big chrome fish – Silversides Fishing is the place to call. Many thanks Brian! See you in December.
Cheers, Jeff Cooper

Thank you Brian and Louise for your help with accommodating us for a great day on the water yesterday. We had many memorable stories and photos to share last night and everyone enjoyed the excellent guiding and overall sturgeon fishing experience. Troy was captain of our boat and he was more than accommodating. We would definitely recommend Silversides to our other team members, as well Troy and all the other guides. They will not be disappointed getting in any of the boats for a great day of fishing. Thanks again!

Owner/Operator & Head Guide
I’m Brian Mack the owner/operator and head guide of Silversides Fishing Adventures.
A deep enthusiasm for sport fishing and working in the tourism field led me to form our company back in 1996. Our joy comes from helping our vast clientel pursue and record their best angling experiences!
I started fishing when I was a kid but really got going when I was in my early 20’s(30 yrs ago). I have fished the Fraser River since the mid 80’s. One of my driving principles in running our business is best described as borderline perfectionist. Many of our clients and my close friends have described me as being methodical. This is how my dad taught me to move through life. To never accept the old addage “that’s good enough”. That’s why I am driven to provide something much better than standard. These are the expectations and requirements of all our team members.
For this reason I guarantee that you will always receive the finest service and fishing resuts all the way through your stay with us.
