Sturgeon Fishing

» Sturgeon fishing is extremely good now and will remain so until mid November. Today we encountered a 800 lb White Sturgeon that was brought to the side of the boat. It did not allow us to take it to shore for a beauty photo. 7 – 9 footers(200 – 400 lbs) are being hooked on a regular basis!

Our Sturgeon charters are highly popular and also very productive. Sturgeon over 1,000 lbs are in the river and we know where they are.

Fly Fishing Report

Look forward to some very good fly fishing for sea-run Dolly Varden & Bull Trout on the famous Upper Pitt River from May thru to mid July. Pitt river trips are jet boat access only. This makes it a remote setting yet only 60-70 minutes from downtown Vancouver. The place is extremely scenic with lots of hungry trout!

» Salmon fly fishing in the Fraser River Valley & Squamish starts in early October and goes until late November at least.

» Don’t miss the Upper Pitt River flyfishing action, trips are limited.
