For freshwater sport-fishing lovers, Chilliwack is a world-class destination.
Sturgeon fishing, salmon fishing, steelhead fishing and trout fishing are among the most popular activities for anglers.
The Fraser River, British Columbia's longest river at 1,375km/854mi, is the prime source of Chilliwack's fishing bonanza, along with the Chilliwack/Vedder River.
Sturgeon, Salmon and Steelhead Fishing
White sturgeon can be caught year-round on a catch-and-release basis in the Fraser River. These are the largest freshwater fish in North America, some as big as 4.5m/15ft in length and 450kg/1,000lb in weight. Sturgeon are easily identifiable, covered with bony plates rather than fish scales.
The salmon fishing season runs from April to October, and encompasses all five species of Pacific salmon: chinook, chum, coho, pink and sockeye.
