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!

Top notch fishing experience from start to finish. We were on the river for a team-building trip and were not disappointed. Scenery was amazing and our amazing guide took us to where the fish were with great success!! Recommend Great River Fishing Adventures to anyone looking for a truly unique fishing experience.

Our staff team has been out on the Fraser River with Dean Werk of Great River Fishing Adventures several times, and there is no other sportfishing provider we would recommend more enthusiastically than him and his team.

Dean is a truly unique and fascinating individual who knows and loves the Fraser River and its fishy inhabitants like no one else. His trips are safe, engaging, and fun. You will see great sights, feel the power of a massive jet motor, and learn a ton about the river and its history. Without a doubt, Dean will show you the time of your life! This is a bucket list trip that you’ll keep coming back for, time and time again.

Had an amazing time sturgeon fishing with my colleagues! It was the perfect mix of adventure and camaraderie. We battled the giants of the river, each catch more thrilling than the last. It wasn't just about fishing; it was about building bonds. Laughing, sharing stories, and working together to reel in these magnificent creatures created unforgettable memories. Highly recommend for anyone looking to strengthen team dynamics while having the time of their lives. Can't wait to do it again!

A fantastic 8 days for Team GB on the water - aggregate age for the 3 rods 237! We are not young. 7 days chasing Salmon - 210 fish hooked - 41 landed. Putting this in perspective - in England on the River Wye - which was one of the UK’s most productive Salmon rivers this season - the whole of the river - the whole of the season 228 fish were caught - 118 of which were caught below Monmouth. 1 day chasing Sturgeon. 9 caught - all big - the largest being 9 foot long weighing 555lbs.
I have been fishing with GRFA now for 14 years - fantastic personal and professional service - the best on the river.
Our guide this year was Rick - what can I say - professional, personable, good sense of humour. Doesn’t get any better. He put us in the right place with the right kit at the right time. Bearing in mind our ages he was also our carer! Being mindful that we are not as fit as we were. Rick is also an excellent photographer - capturing our exploits on the rive - memories for ever.
Thank you my friends another fantastic experience

A fantastic weeks fishing good knowledgeable guides who put us on fish (lots of them!) . Excellent transport to and from the airport, good hotel accommodation, excellent packed lunch (you wont go hungry!) and a barbequed breakfast on the boat as we left before the hotel restaurant opened. All we had to worry about was catching fish, everything else was arranged for us. Look forward to our next trip.

Hi There, Thanks for taking the time to leave such a nice review about your fishing days in the Fraser Canyon with Dean and Michael. This experience is the premier one we offer and in our view, well worth the extra fee. The sheer beauty of where you are fishing and the history and culture all around you is captivating and educational. Dean and Michael have definitely mastered the art of how to create a memorable day - Their caring manner for the river, the fish, the land and those they fish with show deep roots to their work and passion. Again, thanks for your business and your true reflection of your experience with our team Cheers and great fishing, forever, Dean and the GRFA team <")))><
