This is why April is great fly fishing. Bull trout that can reach 12+lbs but average 2 lbs are feeding heavily on salmon fry and this is where you come in! With our expert guiding and custom tied flies you will be presenting your offering in prime runs where Bull's are ready to snatch your fly and make your line go tight!

This fishery lasts into early May, sometimes a bit longer depending on weather. The odd Steelhead and Cutthroat trout are available too.

The Squamish river valley is a fly fishers dream. Its a forested valley surrounded by glacier capped west coast mountains with stunning vista's and plentifull wildlife such as Elk and Bears. It's a nice 1 hour drive from downtown Vancouver where our guide will meet you at the hotel. We supply all equipment and lunch too.

For those not keen on fly fishing for trout there are other options such as Sturgeon fishing on the Fraser river from our custom jetboat.

Please call, text, or email us for any info you desire. Don't forget that we have many years experience providing guided fishing holidays and packages on the Fraser river for Salmon and huge Sturgeon to 500+ lbs!
