Fishing at sunset (Picture BC photo)
Between alpine lakes, mountain rivers, spawning channels and the Fraser River itself, fishing in and around Hope is a year round activity as much for the serious fisherman as for family outings.
Guides & Equipment
However, anglers need to be self sufficient in terms of tackle and equipment; Hope provides no guiding services although STS Guiding out of Chilliwack will do pick-ups here. A visit to Cheyenne Sports (267 Wallace St) will provide the lowdown on current honey-holes for cutthroat, Dolly Varden, rainbow and kokanee, as well as up to date information on fishing regulations, closures and licensing requirements.
Be aware that some locations are off the beaten track and any valuables stowed in left vehicles may be vulnerable to theft.
Fishing Lakes around Hope
A busy, easily accessible lake for kokanee with a few cutthroat, Dolly Varden, coho juveniles and suckers. Closed in winter.
