Sturgeon fishing, Fraser River (Albert Normandin photo)
Choose from a huge variety of stellar fishing locations in British Columbia.
Plan a fishing trip to Pacific coast waters, flycast in a quiet mountain stream, or take a floatplane to a secluded lake. There are more than 20,000km/12,000mi of coastlines, 25,000 lakes and tens of thousands of miles of rivers and streams here.
The chinook salmon has always been BC sport fishing's crown jewel. This trophy fish can tip the scales at more than 32kg/70lb, but there are also other species that promise anglers the fight of their fishing lives.
Try fishing for white sturgeon – the largest freshwater fish in North America. These monsters can grow longer than 3m/12ft, weigh more than 500kg/1,200lb, and leap clear out of the water when hooked.
Another iconic BC fish is the steelhead. Revered by anglers, steelhead are considered one of the hardest-fighting and most elusive game fish in the world.
The lakes and rivers in every region offer excellent fishing. Rainbow trout, cutthroat trout and char are found in most waters, along with species such as whitefish, pike and bass.

Our Grizzly Bear Tours have been included in the Canadian Tourism Commission's "Signature Experiences Collection"! Tours run August to October when the rivers are teeming with salmon, drawing Grizzlies hoping to fatten up for the winter. At this time Grizzlies are intent on fishing and are more tolerant of other bears and people, therefore much easier to observe.
Accompanied by an experienced guide, our non-motorized drift trips are the perfect way to see the bears and wildlife of Bella Coola.
