Our most popular fishing packages are based out of Mission BC which is on the north side of the Fraser river and about 20 km downstream of Chilliwack. Mission is the premier location for Sturgeon fishing without question! It's recognized as the 'Sturgeon capital' of North America and hosts the greatest density of big Sturgeon. There is really no better place to be. As for Salmon fishing, Mission is smack in the middle of some great angling locations! Within 15 minutes upstream or downstream we have 3 main tributaries: Vedder-Chilliwack river, Stave river and Nicomen, and the famous Harrison river is only 25 minutes from Mission. During the epic Pink salmon runs every odd numbered year the Mission area is a far superior place to target these fish because they are closer to the ocean and chrome bullet Pinks are common and easy to get and quite often in very uncrowded private beaches. Discover a great place to sport fish with a proven and reliable guide outfitter service.

The Fishing !
I remember one of our German guests from August 2010 saying to me(he is 30 minutes intofighting a 300 lb Sturgeon) - “Brian! what is this?! this cannot be so! No fish can fight this hard!” If your coming to fish for those famous hard fighting Sturgeon the fishingis very good from mid July to later November but fishing can also be good in June too. July has some good size fish and some of our biggest fish occur from the end of July to mid August each year. All of August is very good for big Sturgeon. Sturgeon are fished from our custom jet boats only.Pink Salmon return in odd # years and this meansthat the first 3 weeks of September is HOT for lots of big fish as the bite is unbelievable! Even # years is quite good during September too. October in even # years is excellent fishing! November is always good as many fish are feeding on the later season Salmon runs.
July has Chinook Salmon on the Fraser river which requires our customjet boats. The Chilliwack river has Chinooks too but it’s walk and wade only.
August has good returns of Chinook Salmon on the Fraser river and if the SockeyeSalmon return in good numbers then we are allowed to fish and keep Sockeye like we did in 2010’s record return year! We never know how many Sockeye will show up until later in July each year.
September 2013 is the next huge Pink Salmon run(usually 20+ million) which equals excellent fishing! Imagine catching up to 100 Salmon by fly fishing orlight spinning tackle! September also has good runs of Fall Chinook-King salmon.Our guided King salmon trips in the fall produce good size fish using plugs or our custom spinners that Chinooks can't resist!
October each year is very good for Chum Salmon on the Fraser river tributaries such as the famous Harrison river. Chum are known for their hard fighting that tires out the strongest arms! Coho Salmon are also present in October and are a very good eating fish and fight well.Coho are fun to catch on fly or light spinning tackle and our custom home made flies and spinners work magic! October is also excellent fishing on the Chilliwack river if your looking to fish with lots of other local anglers.
November has some really good Chum Salmon fishing with some Coho Salmon around too. November Chum's are brighter(often silver bars) and very aggressive hard fighters. The crowds aregone and you can have lots of room! Both fly fishing and gear fishing are productive in the Fall.By December it’s pretty much over for Salmon, there is still some Sturgeon action, but at this time we are getting ready for winter and looking forward to really good winter Steelhead fishing from January to April.
Trips depart anytime from 7 to 8AM depending on species targeted. Times will be confirmed the day before. We fish for 8 hours but sometimes a little bit more if we need to. You are usually back at shore around 4:30 PM so you can enjoy your evening and talk about the big one with good friends, food and maybe a beer!.
Boats and Equipment-
Our main boat is a 21 foot Custom Weld with 5.7 liter inboard jet(as pictured)Other boats in the fleet are similar and all are jet and have coveredseating area that is comfortable. For cold days we can turn the heater on. Sturgeon gear is professional grade Shimano products that have been timetested to handle the biggest of fish! We keep all our rods and reels in goodworking order and clean!Salmon gear is also many Shimano products, Abu Garcia, Diawa and Quantumto name a few.We custom tie all our own flies and jigs and make our own spinners too thathave been tested for years and proven to work great!I make sure all our fishing guides meet my own high standards for knowledge of the fish, safety and friendly service.
What to bring :
For July and August make sure to bring shorts and water shoes(sandals), hat, sunglasses, sunscreen and camera.For Fall time bring warmer clothes, long underwear, goretex or rainwear, sweaters etc. Temperatures in October canbe from 5-15 C and rain, wind or sun, it’s a mixed bag of weather. Clients are welcome to bring their own fly gear and waders if they like.We also take pictures or video and can email them to you later.
I look forward to providing you your unforgettable Fishing Vacation on the famous Fraser River in Canada!!!

We are very experienced in what we do- listen to what our clients say:
Hi Brian, I just wanted to say thanks for the greatest 2 day of fishing I have had in a very long time. Your professional attitude, knowledge and the excellent service made it a great trip...you suggested we go for Sturgeon and all I can say is WOW. I have fished many countries for many species but I have never fought any thing with so much brute force...I have become a bit of a hero amongst my friends here in SA and so have you. Again thanks for a great trip and reassured you will be highly recommended by me. Neal Swanepoel, South Africa, July 2009
"I hope that in the future I and my friends will have the opportunity to get up and go fishing with you again, because you are truly a "professional guide" with a ton of knowledge" - Jim A. Wisconsin, USA, April 2008
"Thank you for the nice time in Mission and the best fishing guide ever met. Hope we will see you again in Canada..." - Pekka Kalmi, Finland Oct 2008

Fraser valley sport fishing for Salmon from April to December on the Fraser River, Harrison river and many more rivers and tributaries in the region such as the Pitt River and Squamish River. Fraser river Sturgeon angling holidays are the best from mid July to mid November on the Fraser River and Harrison River but April and May offer great fishing too.
Stay in the Best Western-Mission City Lodge located 2 minutes from the Fraser river or a quiet bed and breakfast just a few miles away in a quiet country setting that is designed for fishermen or women. Silversides can set it all up for you with just 1 call: (1) 604-505-0361.
Fishing methods for Salmon employ the use of lures such as spin-glows, plugs, spoons, spinners, jigs and bait, and of course we have a good reputation for fly fishing success. We avoid the use of bottom bouncing as it is not sport fishing but incidental snagging.
Trout fishing holidays are also a good choice for river or lake anglers. If you enjoy lake fly fishing for Rainbow trout up to 8 lbs or more on classic stillwaters set in pristine high country wilderness lakes then May 1 to July 1 is a good time. River fly fishing for Char such as Bull Trout and Dolly Varden is great anytime from April to May but March and June also offer opportunities. Steelhead fishing is good anytime from January to April on the Chilliwack River with March-April the best, and many more local rivers either fly fishing or gear fishing.
I look forward to answering any of your queries - Brian Mckinlay, owner and head guide.
