WE FILMED ANOTHER TV SHOW! Read Article.

Our Sturgeon charters are highly popular and also very productive. Sturgeon success rates are over 99.5% year round !

Salmon Fishing for 2019

» Salmon fishing on the Squamish River for Pinks is Extremely GOOD. Expect good fly fishing for these Pinks right up to early September. Suitable for all levels of experience from ages 15 and up. It’s walk and wade and we supply all high end tackle and waders. Our guides will be super busy for this so best to book in advance.

Fraser River salmon fishing is still closed due to a corrupt and wreckless Fisheries Minister lying about low Chinook numbers despite the best Chinook fishing in decades out in the ocean(those same fish are going up the Fraser River). Having said that we are hopeful that a opening on this river will happen soon.

>> Fraser River Coho and Chinook fishing will be available starting September 15 at many tributary mouths.

Hotel pickup from Vancouver is available year round for all our walk n wade trips.
