Welcome to Vancouver Fly Fishing. We have some of the best sport fishing opportunities for Fly Fishing and Fishing for Salmon, Trout and Steelhead. The Pitt River has some incredible opportunities within 50 miles of Vancouver and the upper Pitt River being the most productive river in B.C. for all salmon and trout species and sturgeon. Danny and Lee at the Pitt River Lodge and The Fly Fishing Lodge have lived and fished the area for nearly 30 years and have more local fishing knowledge and fishing experience than any other company working in the Pitt River watershed. If you are going to come to the Pitt River to fish you can do no better than Danny and Lee. Why fish with the rest when you can fish with the best.
The upper Pitt is located 30 miles north east of Vancouver, just behind the mountains that you see from the city as such we are boat and air access only (see the webcams and location map linked here).
With the Pitt River Lodge or The Fly Fishing Lodge we do guided day trips as well as full lodging packages. The Pitt River has fish year round and is all wild catch and release fishery, which is why year after year it has strong healthy runs of large hard fighting fish. Just a 30 minute boat ride across Pitt Lake takes you to a wilderness equal if not better than Alaska where you can see bears, Roosevelt Elk, wolves, deer, bald eagles and golden eagles and numerous other wildlife on your fishing adventure.
The Upper Pitt River system is one of those unique river systems that offers year round fishing for Salmon, Steelhead, Bull Trout, Rainbow Trout and Cutthroat Trout on both the wet and dry fly. If you love fly fishing this is a must fish river that should be on your bucket list!
Thank you for an amazing trip at the Pitt River Lodge. First, you were very flexible with our ever changing schedule. Once we got their everything was first class; the accommodations, the scenery, the guides (John, Jordan, Judah and Stu - THANKS!) the food, etc. The evening bon-fires we're awesome and the extra bonus of going for and catching 3 Sturgeon on our last night won't be forgotten.
Thanks again for the great experience and will definitely be back for round 2!

Thank YOU for the hospitality and great fishing memories. I look forward to my return.
I think I got the bug in Josh because he loves fly fishing now more than ever. He comes to Vancouver about twice a year on business and I can see him taking a slight detour now periodically.
I cannot express how wonderfully accommodating Pitt River Lodge was in the organizing of this trip for my executives and their clients. Anything I feel I could say would be an understatement. We had last minute cancellations, add ons, and changes and Lee took it all in stride beautifully and was available to address all of my concerns from local car service help to alcohol/liquor inquiries. Everyone had such an amazing time and continuously praised on how wonderfully pleasant the entire staff at Pitt River Lodge were. They felt the staff were like family to them. Thank you so much for making this trip seamless and unforgettable! Definitely will recommend to all other colleagues and friends!
