Castaway Fishing Adventures

Castaway Fishing Adventures operates along the many rivers around Chilliwack, BC, targeting the biggest and best these cold clean waters have to offer. Though they can get you on a variety of the area’s top species, the one these guys specialize in is Sturgeon. This primeval monster thrives in the surrounding rivers, reaching sizes unimaginable for a freshwater fish.

In order to best make your way into the remote wilderness that Sturgeon call home, you will need a boat capable of covering great distance at speed, while also providing a solid fishing platform. Captain Dan Rees has just the tool for the job. His 20’ Custom Weld jet boat can cruise at a staggering 45 knots and offers plenty of fishing space once you get where you need to be.

The boat is equipped with GPS and fishfinder to help penetrate these deep murky waters. Once you have found your fish, you will be provided with quality tackle at a variety of weights to give you the best chance of bringing it in. You can choose between spinning, jigging, and even fly fishing depending on the species you are after.

This is the opportunity to experience the ultimate in freshwater fishing: targeting 12’ long Sturgeon, hard-fighting Salmon, and wily Rainbow Trout in the very heart of the BC wilderness. All tackle and lures are included, as well as food and drink to keep your energy up. At the end of your trip, Captain Dan will clean and fillet all your catch for you, ready to enjoy as soon as you get home - you will certainly have worked up an appetite!
