Fly Fishing for Salmon, Steelhead and Trout in the Vancouver area.


The Lillooet River Adventure

The Lillooet Adventure is accessible by jet boat from Harrison Lake near the Harrison Hot Springs Resort. This is truly a remote wilderness adventure; wildlife is plentiful. Black bears and beautiful bald eagles are a frequent site in this area. The occasional grizzly bear and deer can also be seen walking the river banks that are surrounded by beautiful snow capped mountains of the Costal Mountain range.

The Lillooet River is 90 miles long and originates with melt-water from the Lillooet Glacier high in the Coast Mountain range, north of Vancouver. It flows south and east past the towns of Pemberton and Mount Currie, to empty into the north end of Harrison Lake. A widening of the river near Pemberton forms Lillooet lake (35.3 sq km). The lower river valley from Harrison Lake north is steeped in our local history and was part of the Douglas Road to the Interior, used between 1858 and 1862. This road was named after one of our more colorful and controversial governors, Sir James Douglas. This road was the principle means of traveling to the Interior during the Gold Rush until a new road through the Fraser River Canyon was cut.

Round trip is approximately 110 miles, or 177 Km from boat launch to the river and back. Water transportation will be provided in comfortable heated jet boats.  All trips are at least 8 hours per day and includes experienced guides and all gear. Contact us for more information on rates and availability.
