Guided Trips & Adventures
BOOKING WINTER STEELHEAD TRIPS NOW. *See information below*
Walk and wade float fishing or fly fishing trips are available for Steelhead. Steelhead are known as “the fish of a thousand casts” but they do not have to be! British Columbia hosts some of the World’s best steelhead, genetically proven to be some of the strongest and most acrobatic fish. Steelhead fishing can be all about timing, but our local fishery is best between late December and the end of April. Throughout the Winter and early Spring, various runs will move into our
systems, and let us be the ones that put you on one of BC’s most elusive and prized gamefish.
Where do we fish? Well we go to where the fish are. Steelhead fishing can be a tricky game at times and we strive to do our best at getting you into fish. While we strive to get you into your fish of a lifetime, there is a lot more than just catching fish that you can gain on a Walk and Wade Steelhead trip with us. Throughout the day, you will be instructed and taught the correct measures as to why you are (for example) fishing the spot a certain depth, or why you are using the current bait or presentation at the time. Our Steelhead guides are highly experienced and knowledgeable in the Steelhead field. If they are not working in the store talking about Steelhead, you can sure bet they are out Steelhead fishing themselves.
Our Steelhead trips will be based on an 8 hour day, giving you the ultimate opportunity at catching fish. If you would like a shorter day, we can work around your schedule. Our most fished river is the Vedder/Chilliwack River system which produces strong returns of both Hatchery and Wild fish. This is generally a catch and release fishery, but if you catch a Hatchery fish, you are allowed to retain 1 per day, and you must stop fishing for the day.
*Scheduling your trip will be based on fishing conditions and how fishing has currently been. If conditions do not permit for “fishable” trips, we will re-schedule your trip.*
Walk & Wade – *6 Hour or 8 Hour*
6 Hour Trips:
1 person – $350 + GST
2 people – $400 + GST
8 Hour Trips:
1 person – $400 + GST
2 people – $450 + GST
*Maximum 2 people per trip*
This is the most common way we target Winter Steelhead in our local area, and is generally one of the most effective ways to catch these fish. When using the float fishing technique, we typically use levelwind/casting reels, or centrepin reels.
We cover all aspects of fly fishing, whether it be using single hand or double hand techniques. Our fly fishing trips are classified as specialized trips, so please phone or e-mail for more details.

Fall Salmon (Coho, Chinook, Chum)
September to November
Come September we offer guided Walk-n-Wade Salmon trips. Through the months of September to November, Fall run Pacific Salmon make their way up a good majority of our local river systems. The Fraser River is the main highway for Fraser Valley tributaries. These fish can be caught on both conventional gear set-ups, and fly fishing set-ups.
Chinook Salmon: The biggest and baddest of the Pacific Salmon Species, we love to target these fish with a Gear rod and float set-up.
Coho Salmon: The most acrobatic and spunky of the Pacific Salmon Species, these fish are known to have a bad attitude some days not wanting to bite anything, yet are also known to bite anything under the Sun. That’s just what makes these things fun to chase with a gear rod float fishing, casting spinners and spoons, or fly fishing.
Chum Salmon: Chum Salmon are an underrated fish that put up a spectacular fight. They pull hard and will give you lots of action either on a gear or fly rod.
Pink Salmon: Our Salmon trips will be based on a 6 hour day base price seen below (which can be upgraded to an 8 hour trip). If you would like a shorter day, we can work around your schedule. Our most fished river is the Vedder/Chilliwack River system which produces strong returns of both Hatchery and Wild fish. Unlike our Steelhead fishery, there are a lot more opportunities for retention of fish.
*Scheduling your trip will be based on fishing conditions and how fishing has currently been. If conditions do not permit for fishable trips, we will re-schedule your trip.*
