Tackle & Equipment:
When planning a BC angling adventure, please consider the quality of the tackle and equipment that your outfitter provides. We, at River Sportfishing, use top quality name brands to ensure that we meet or exceed your expectations. Quality tackle and equipment not only enhances your overall fishing experience, it also ensures that you increase your chances of hooking and landing that trophy fish of a lifetime. We take our fishing seriously and therefore do not cheap out on our equipment, as we understand the value and importance of using good gear when hunting for trophy fish on a daily basis. If you’re an experienced angler, you will appreciate the quality of equipment we use. When you fish with us, you can be assured you’ll be fishing with the finest name brands in the tackle industry. Whether you’re planning on doing some recreational salmon fishing in BC or are a serious BIG GAME hunter and are planning a Fraser River sturgeon fishing trip, we have all the necessary gear you’ll need.
Best yet, we supply all this gear to you at no additional cost.
Our jet boats are river machines, designed to navigate our local rivers quickly and safely. Our fleet consists of 21-24ft machines, all fully covered to protect you from the elements at all times. Each boat comes with a full walk-through windshield and a fully enclosed, yet removable, custom top. They’re spacious, comfortable, with plenty of storage. We do our best to assign the right size of boat for your group’s needs. These boats are designed for the rivers we fish, being able to run in as little as 2″ of water and can reach speeds in excess of 45mph. Although they have sitting available for 5-6 passengers, we recommend that groups stick to 4 anglers/boat as this provides the most comfortable fit. There is plenty of storage space for your lunches, coolers, and your daily catch.
Safety is a key part of every BC angling trip. Our fishing guides have been around water for the best part of their lives and having worked extensively in the outdoors, you can be assured your safety is not overlooked. We take all the preventative measures and necessary precautions to ensure your trip will be a safe one. Whether fishing in bear populated areas, wading rivers, or dealing with extreme weather and river conditions, we trust our guides’ experience will help prevent any major mishaps. The boats are regularly maintained, and are equipped with first-aid kits and all other necessary items required by law. Our fishing guides know their local waters and along with safe boat handling/operating skills, you’ll spend more time enjoying the trip and less time worrying about potential problems.
