Want to battle giant fish on an adventure like no other? Whether you’re in for big game or just want to create unforgettable memories with your friends and family, Captain Brandon Wootton of Mainlanders Sport Fishing is your guy! He’ll hook you up with White Sturgeon, and much more that the Fraser River has to offer.

Capt. Brandon is proud to announce that his charter is now part of the Fraser River’s Sturgeon Conservation Society. This means they take part in tagging and tracking White Sturgeon on the river, helping to conserve this fish. On your trip, you’ll earn the unique bragging rights of taking part in the conservation of Sturgeon, too!

Head to Chilliwack and explore the bountiful waters on a 20’ Custom Weld jet boat. It comes powered by a 350 HP Chevrolet engine and can accommodate up to four anglers in full comfort. The vessel is equipped with top-notch professional gear, navigational electronics and fishfinding equipment.

Get ready for some trolling, spinning, and jigging, as well as bottom, drift, and fly fishing. Let Captain Brandon lead the way and put you on a magnificent giant White Sturgeon or any Salmon you wish to cross off your bucket list - Pink, Coho, Chinook, or Chum. Don’t forget that Sturgeon is strictly catch-and-release, but Captain Brandon will clean and filet all the Salmon you catch.

Mainlanders Sport Fishing puts success, safety, and convenience of their customers above everything else. Even though catching a ‘Living Fossil’ is a dream come true for all big game anglers, it’s perfectly suitable for families with kids too. Children older than four are welcome on board, and the captain will provide life jackets for them too.

Captain will provide everything else free of charge - lures, top quality fly fishing equipment, and Penn and Shimano rods and reels. Bring your own drinks and snacks, and don’t forget to buy a fishing license before the trip. Contact Brandon for larger group bookings, he has several boats in his fleet.

For the past 30 years, I've been living and fishing in the Fraser Valley. My career as a fishing guide on the Fraser River started ten years ago, and I specialize in catch-and-release Sturgeon Fishing. This is undoubtedly my favorite fish when it comes to guiding - there's nothing like the excitement of your customers when they encounter a giant Sturgeon for the first time in their lives. My goal is to guide my guests through the adventure of a lifetime and help them land their dream fish.
