Does anyone know of any guides that specialise in drift boating the upper rivers? It seems like a great way of fishing the river, and enjoying the natural beauty of the Valley. Ideally it would be an early start Sat. morning, fish from the boat and shore when we find a school, camp, then fish til Sunday afternoon.

Has anyone done this? I have googled the topic but didn't come up with anyone.

I have been on the rivers a handful of times, and haven't seen any non powered boats. I know the river really rips at points, that's why I would like to find a knowledgeable guide. Also, if anyone would be interested in this sort of trip let me know as it would be fun to have a couple boats.

Thanks...

Probably these systems are not what you are after, once fishable numbers of Salmon are in the Harrison it gets very crowded, even more applicable to the Vedder.
I would suggest you look into a similar situation on either the upper Pitt, Squamish system or even the Lilloet River, although the giant slide up there may have ended that scenario.
The popular local rivers are NOT the place for a relaxing enjoyable float in the wilderness, unless the fishing is terrible or closed in them.

Ahhhh...a admirer of a most pleasant and rewarding way to fish a river. The quite serentity of rowing a drift boat down a flow.Brings back pleasant memories...If you really want to driftboat a nice river try the Cowichan river in Duncan on Vancouver Island. This is an nice river to drift with no annoying jetboats ripping around.There are a few excelllent guides on this flow who would be happy to take you on a trip!::)
