Fishing at sunset (Picture BC photo)
Klemtu has excellent fishing and amenities such as a public dock and fueling station to accommodate visiting anglers.
The best fishing spots are usually excellent for wildlife viewing as well.
Guided fishing tours are available with several operators in surrounding communities of Denny Island, Hakai Pass, Ocean Falls, and Bella Coola.
Three species of salmon – chum, coho, and pink – spawn in the area's many coastal rivers and creeks. Chum are the last to spawn in the rivers and streams, and coho feast on kilometres/miles of kelp reefs located along the coastline, start late in July and continuing through September. Other potential catches include halibut (in Laredo Sound northwest of Swindle Island), lingcod, rockfish, and snapper. Herring, crab, prawns, urchins, and sea cucumbers are also harvested locally.
