THE POWER OF SPORT
Grant said having military vets as fishing guides “was the icing on the cake.”
Chuck Hamel served three tours with army infantry, one in the Congo and two in Afghanistan. He suffered physical injuries but like many of the others on the trip, he suffered an occupational stress injury (OSI). (Hamel said he doesn’t like the term PTSD, although others use it.) For ...

Fraser River Sturgeon fishing is changing every day. You have to put in the time to find them, and every day is different. You have to be packing bait! Eulichan’s, Lamprey eel, roe, dew worms. Keep moving! Pull out all the stops to get yourself into fish.
They are out there, we have seen some big fish around, and the Great River Team is well versed in the thrill of hunting down that ...continue →

The past 2 years we have riddled with high water flow right through to mid August and I have ...continue →

Fraser River Sturgeon fishing has been off the chain! The water has dirtied a bit and the water is slowly on the rise. The forecast for the freshet (for now) seems to be a steady one. This is great news, because it means there won’t be huge fluctuations in water levels that seem to throw the fish off. It also means an already epic beginning to our year should continue. Our ...continue →
