This was a fantastic trip and we were ecstatic about it the whole time we were there. Our guide whose name is Ashley was absolutely outstanding from start to finish. Picking us up at the dock in mission and out we went on our adventure. My buddy and I did not know what the outcome of the day would be we just took it for granted that it would be an average day out on the river. Boy was I wrong. We anchored up and Ashley set up the rods and within an hour we had a 170 pound sturgeon on the beach. I could not believe what I was looking at. Hence the fact Ashley said we will get a couple more of those all being well. I was absolutely busting at the seems and we had only just begun. Our thanks to Silversides fishing adventures and Ashley in particular you deserve nothing but four thumbs up from 2 old guys, Thanks Ashley for a day in a lifetime. See you soon I promise.

What a great experience! Sturgeon fishing on the Fraser River was truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience. 2 women who have fished freshwater bass and trout and saltwater snapper and grouper before but who had no sturgeon fishing experience. We each caught a fish in the 4 - 4 1/2 foot range and did they ever put up a fight. What a BLAST! Highly recommend Brian, Louise & their staff - - awesome people; awesome fun!

We fished a full day on July 28, 2016. This was the first time any of the four of us had fished for something as big as a Sturgeon. Brian really knows what he's doing, and is persistent and methodical in his approach.

My husband landed his Sturgeon, over six feet, in about the first hour and a half. So exciting!

Things slowed down a little, my older daughter lost two that spit out the bait (we have a cool picture of the second one spitting mid-jump).

As the afternoon was drawing to a close, she finally got a big one, 6'5" and probably 170lbs. It was a great fight and a great end to a great day. We loved it!

In addition, we have a small dachshund who travels with us. Brian and Louise's teenaged daughter babysat for him and did a fantastic job. We were so happy for her help us out.

This is a first class group of folks. We'll be back for more. Thanks so much!!

We had an amazing day's fishing with Brian. The fish were proving hard to catch with none of the other boats catching, but Brian's persistence and knowledge with changing bait and location proved to be a winner with 3 hard fighting fish landed. Highly recommend, great day out.
