Pitt River - We are lucky enough to have one of British Columbia's best kept secrets just outside our back door. Located just 40 minutes drive from Vancouver, this isolated location has no road access and is only accessible by float plane or Jet Boat. Difficult access means no crowds. Upper Pitt River is located at the North end of Pitt Lake, the largest tidal lake in North America. The resident trout are all wild stock - and incredibly beautiful. Good populations of resident trout and sea-run Char are in the river year round. Approximately 40 miles of river awaits you.

We offer: Day Trips, overnight camps from 2 to 10 days & you can combine any of our other adventures to make a angling holiday of a lifetime.

Lillooet River - This river offers a unique opportunity for those looking for adventure. Getting there is half the fun, we either run jet boats across Harrison Lake then jet boat up this narrow shallow river or we fly you in via Helicopter. The Lillooet offers good angling for Cutthroat trout, rainbows and Dolly Varden Char in Winter, spring and fall. Great wildlife viewing opportunities for Bears, Deer, Eagles and the occasional Grizzly. This river adventure begins at Harrison Hot Springs located 90 minutes east of Vancouver.

Most lakes are within a 2 - 3 hours drive from Vancouver so day trips are possible. Our overnight outfitter camps are a great way to experience British Columbia outdoors.

Day Trips - If your looking for a day trip out of the city,our river fishing adventures are more suitable. If you can spare an extra day, it's best to drive out to Mission ( 1 hours drive from Vancouver) spend the night with us and head out at first light. We can offer a variety of fishing opportunities including our private lake located 2 hours north of Mission.
