Fishing at sunset (Picture BC photo)
Ocean fishing is one of the major attractions in Prince Rupert.
The large number of fish, combined with the relative small number of people to compete against, makes Prince Rupert stand out among other fishing locales in the province.
Fishing Season and Types of Fish
The prized catches on BC's Northwest Coast include halibut, Pacific salmon and other fish such as rockfish, lingcod, red snapper and cod. While all five species of Pacific salmon – sockeye, chinook, coho, chum and pinks – are in the area, fishers often seek to snag the chinook and coho.
Halibut can be fished year-round, but peak season is April to October. The chinook peak season is mid-April to mid-July and coho opportunities are best two months later, from mid-July to mid-September. Crab, shrimp and prawns are other tasty ocean treats that can be caught off the local docks, and in the harbour.
