Making sure you and your group have the best possible fishing experience in Vancouver is what our team is all about. We’ve compiled some of our most commonly asked questions we get about our Vancouver fishing trips. If there’s something else you’re curious about don’t hesitate to reach out, you can visit our Contact Us page to get a hold of our team.

Where can we go fishing close to Vancouver?

There’s lots of great places to go fishing near Vancouver. Our Vancouver salmon fishing charters leave right from the city, while our fly fishing trips will take you up to the Squamish Valley about an hour north of Vancouver. There’s also great sturgeon fishing on the Fraser River about 90 minutes east of Vancouver.

When’s the best time to go fishing in Vancouver?

We’re pretty lucky that we have 12 months of the year. Obviously some times are better than others. Peak months for saltwater salmon fishing are mid March to late September. On our fly fishing trips the most popular dates are early March to late November but there is also winter fly fishing opportunities as well. The best months for a Vancouver sturgeon fishing trip are from April to early November.

We don’t want to do a full-day, what’s the best trip? 

For those of you who don’t have time to do a full-day trip we do offer two different half-day Vancouver fishing trips. Our half-day Vancouver salmon charters are super popular and a great option if you’re on a time crunch. These are really popular with people coming in on cruise ships with limited time. We also offer half-day fly fishing trips on the Squamish River. These are a fun trip for beginner anglers looks to get their feet wet and learn about fly fishing.

Do you include fishing gear? 

Yes, all our trips include all the fishing gear you’ll need for the day.

Do you include food and drinks? 

We do not include food and drinks on our Vancouver salmon charters or our Vancouver fly fishing trips. We do include lunch on our sturgeon fishing trips though. You are welcome to bring along food and drinks for any of our trips.

Can kids come fishing? 

Of course they can! We are happy to welcome kids onboard our salmon charters and sturgeon trips. Unfortunately we can’t have kids under the age of twelve (12) on our river fishing trips. They are welcome to take part in our Vancouver fly fishing courses that we do throughout the year.

Am I going to see a bear? 

Believe it or not, we get this questions lots! Unless you find a bear who likes to swim you won’t see them on a salmon charter or a sturgeon trip. From time to time we see bears while out in the wilderness fly fishing. They’re usually way more scared of us than we are of them!

How do we get a BC fishing license?

Getting either a tidal (saltwater) or non-tidal (freshwater) BC fishing licenses is really easy. All fishing licenses are available online. When you book with us we’ll send you a link and instructions on how to buy your BC fishing license prior to you trip.

How do payments and cancellations work?

Payments are done securely online. We’ll send you a detailed invoice that you can pay with either Visa or MasterCard. Deposit payments will secure your space with us. Trips cancelled due to weather, ocean or river conditions are fully refundable and all trip payments are transferable if you need to change a date!

How do I book a trip?

You can inquire at our Contact Us page and we’ll get back to you with availability and more info.

“Yos and his team of guides treated us like gold. We had two epic days on the river, and caught a ton of fish. The Chromers team run a first class outfit with super experienced and knowledgeable guides, and excellent communication every step of the way. I can honestly say it was the most positive fishing experience in my life!”
