Fishing Report for Chilliwack to Vancouver – June 4, 2017
Hi and welcome to the GRFA fishing report updated on the  4th of June 2017.

Summer is quickly approaching and with it, new fishing opportunities to satisfy the most hardened and ardent angler. Here’s what’s been happening and a few things coming up…

2017.06.04 CSturgeon:
The Fraser River water levels have bumped up dramatically in the last week. There is allot of debris coming down now and anyone angling from an anchored boat really needs to keep an eye up stream to ensure that you don’t get run over by a floating log. Also, fishing lines need to be cleaned more often, at least every 20 minutes to make sure that the bait is not covered up. Most fish have moved into shallower water (under 40 feet) than they we’re in the spring and the most consistent bait has been lamprey parts.

2017.06.04 FWe have had a phenomenal start in the Fraser Canyon this year. The fishing has been ultra-steady with good numbers of above average fish coming on every charter. If you are thinking of running this special piece of water keep in mind that is very “heavy” water and not for the timid or unexperienced jet boater. Please be very careful!! The canyon is a high water fishery and the sturgeon haunts are not always obvious as the water levels tend to hide the really good spots. If you’re interested in trying your hand at biggest of the big in one of the most spectacular venue’s in the world drop Rick a line and he’ll be more than happy to help organize one of our Ultimate Fraser Canyon Sturgeon trips with you.

2017.06.04 EWhat better way is there to spend a warm summer day than sitting in a comfortable covered jet boat waiting on another bite from the almighty sturgeon.  With limited fishing pressure on the river this is a great time of year to get out and experience these dinosaurs of the deep. We offer half and full day outing’s via jet boat with nothing but the finest in guides and tackle. We pride ourselves in ensuring your day is as comfortable, safe and enjoyable as possible. Whatever your speed, we will cater to your needs. Call or email today.




Pitt River:2017.06.04 A

With June upon us we have started our annual Pitt River Fishery. We have seen some monster fish already and it’s shapping up to be a good season.  The Sea Run Bulls have started their annual migration up the river and the fishing should only get better as the month progresses. This special fishery continues through the summer but having said that typically the best Bull Trout fishing is during freshet. No explanation why, just know that the numbers do not lie. Bigger fish and numbers.

Because the Pitt is glacier fed, water levels have still been fluactuating with any warm weather bumping the river up and cool days bring ing it down fast. If you are intersed in trying out this river for the first time please keep in mind that is boat access only and the river can be treacherous to run for a novice jet boater.

2017.06.04 DGreat River Fishing Adventures guides have many years’ experience fishing the Upper Pitt River watershed and are knowledgeable about the area and effective techniques to target all species. As Jet Boats and experienced boat handling skills are required to access and fish this river, you rarely see other anglers, and more importantly this area is not over fished. It is truly an adventure that is easily accessible within a day from Vancouver. For a free personalized quote please drop Rick an email at

That’s all for now, until next time: tight lines and scream’n reels.
