Founded in 1988, we are one of the largest fully guided sport-fishing operators on the Fraser River and it's tributaries. Every year, thousands of tourists from all over the world visit us to experience the world-renowned fishing and natural wonder of the Fraser River in beautiful British Columbia. This calm water fishery features over ten species of sport fish and year round opportunities for the novice and expert angler alike.

We fish the #1 Sturgeon, Salmon and Trout rivers in the World. We specialize in multiple styles of fishing to meet the needs of any angler. Have you ever caught or touched a real living Dinosaur? We specialize in targeting White Sturgeon, a species that can grow over 20 feet in length and over a 1000lbs. These magnificent creatures make spectacular jumping displays and runs that will excite every angler. We also fish for all 5 species of Wild Pacific Salmon and boast the largest and most experienced team of fly fishing guides on the entire river. We exclusively travel to the Upper Pitt River and Lillooet River to chase sea run Dolly Varden, Bull Trout, Rainbow and migrating Salmon. When fishing with us the opportunities are endless and each adventure is personally customized so you can focus on the reason you are here......to fish!

Wow! What an experience! I took my parents and two teenage children on this fantastic adventure over Spring break. Great staycation idea, money well spent. Istvan from Hungary was our guide and he accommodated all of our wishes, we caught lots of fish. It was the most exciting and challenging fish I've caught! It took two of us! Highly recommend...

We took my wife's sister and partner out for a combined birthday party. Eight of us in all in two boats. What an amazing experience. Between the two boats we were somewhere in the 20-23 fish to the boat range, we actually lost count! Only a couple 6 foot plus (we did have one in the range of 7-8 ft)... More

The day was amazing! I have already fished for a long time on plenty rivers and lakes in Germany where I caught some big fish, but fishing on the Fraser plays in another league. I never thought that we were able to catch this amount of huge fish. Finally I reached my objective, to catch a sturgeon over 2 meters,... More

I recently fished sturgeon with Great River Adventures in Chilliwack, BC and had an outstanding experience. Myself and a close friend booked a full day charter and the guide (Dave) was amazing. He was very knowledgeable and we found him to be extremely personable and thoroughly enjoyed his company. We caught 5 sturgeon in total, one of which was 162.25... More

We were lucky enough to go out on a sturgeon adventure with our guide Istvan yesterday. He welcomed us at the boat launch and immediately made us feel welcome and at ease. This trip has been on my boyfriend's bucket list and we were not disappointed. We caught 3 sturgeon in the 4 hour trip thanks to our awesome guide.... More

We had a great time with Great River Fishing and caught an 8 footer. It was an awesome experience and we enjoyed our day, the guide and all the equipment needed to catch sturgeon and enjoy the Fraser. Of course, non stop rain wasn't appreciated, but as Vancouverites, we know there is nothing we can do about that. The first... More
