About
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!

Fantastic service from start to finish. Dean and Alyssa are very professional and the service they provided was nothing short of perfect.
Our guide, Landon aka “Rocky”, was absolutely amazing providing us with incredible fishing throughout the week. His knowledge and patience was fantastic and he managed to take us to places on the Fraser no other guide has taken us before! Nothing was too much trouble and we always felt extremely confident that he could put us on to fish.
I would not hesitate to recommend them highly to anyone looking for the ultimate angling experience. We will be back.

This was a trip that was a splurge for an experience that I could do with my son which we would both remember forever. It exceeded not just our basic measure of success or even out best-case hope. It was literally unfathomable before we got there and experienced it for ourselves.

Our guide Mitch was great. Knowledgeable as well as enthusiastic to share his and his family’s way of life (as well as patient with two anglers who weren’t as polished as some of the people he’d likely have taken out.). I can’t imagine being blessed to live on the Fraser and interact with these living dinosaurs every day. If I had better organized myself I should have stayed at your yurts or teepees as it would have been a fantastic topper to the whole thing.

I can’t possibly recommend you guys enough. I’ve been raving about you guys to everyone I know and the reaction to the pictures is disbelief that such a thing is possible.

Thanks for everything. You made my kid and I memories that can’t be topped.

Dean is so knowledgeable and passionate about what he does. We had so much fun on the boat and learnt a lot. There were 3 of us BCIT students on the boat to learn about juvenile tagging and we couldn't have asked for a better person to show us the ropes.

I have travelled for Fishing in England ,Wales ,Scotland ,Northern Ireland ,Eire ,Putinland,Sweden , Norway to chase Salmon BUT absolutely nothing compares to the complete magical experience of Beautiful BC !
I started visiting some 26 years ago , when I still had some hair ,and visited every year apart from the Desolate Covid Years and only got rained off one year on The Lillooett River ….but we went back on The Fraser for Giant Sturgeon ….and that was magic !!
I would never go with another Guiding Team other than GRFA as the attention to detail and service and sheer professionalism and FUN is the absolute best !!
In my Seventies now so making sure I get every year back to Chilliwack and Hope to see Dean ,Barbs ,Ally ,Mitch ,Landon and The Boys before The Reaper gets me !!!

Always wanted to experience the thrill of catching a Fraser River Sturgeon! Our day trip with Great River did not disappoint. Mitch was our guide & he was very knowledgeable in regards to the river & with coaching both myself and my wife when we hooked fish. Truly a great experience!

Excellent experience ! This is a great company! We were rebooked for three day fishing trip after our flight to BC was canceled by airlines. Great River Fishing made sure to get us out on the water and fit in our trip. This was our fourth time sturgeon fishing in the Fraser River Canyon with Great River. Once again it was awesome! We landed many fish each day. Our guide Landon has excellent knowledge of where to find the fish. We were consistently catching large fish throughout the day. If you are looking for excellent sturgeon fishing choose Great River Fishing Adventures. Looking forward to our next trip.

An absolutely amazing end to our Canada trip, thank you Dean and Alyssa. The domes were luxurious, beautiful and peaceful - gorgeously decorated and with everything thought of. An evening on the little beach watching the slow sockeye, listening to the trees, in anticipation of our fishing. And wow! Very hard to explain the respect and love that Dean has for the river, fish, land and First Nations. We did not expect that interaction with fish would leave such an impression on us. The boat was spotless, the attention to detail (ensuring we had the best day ever) was spectacular. High excitement, lots of humour, huge amounts of love and attention for the kids too. There's something very special about Dean, the river and his fish. Absolutely and totally recommend it to anyone.

Spent two glorious nights in the domes and one day fishing sturgeon with our son and his wife. The domes are spectacular. We were blown away with the entire set up from the design, the furniture, the cleanliness and all the amenities. You don’t need to bring anything besides food, beverages, clothes, beach towels and some yard games if you are so inclined.
The day on the river was amazing. We caught 11 fish in one day. Dean was an outstanding and knowledgeable guide!
Can’t say enough about our ultimate fishing and glamping experience.
Many thanks to all of you who made it happen.
