Anglers flock to Terrace for river fishing.
The Skeena River and its tributaries are some of the most important spawning grounds in the province for Pacific salmon and offer hundreds of popular and secrets spots for visitors and locals alike.
The Terrace area is home to all five species of salmon, though anglers venture to the lakes to try for trout as well.
The fishing seasons in Terrace and area vary per species. Steelhead run from March to May and August to November. Chinook are here from May to mid-August. Coho are around from mid-August to the end of October. Sockeye, pinks and chum have shorter seasons from the beginning of July to mid- to late August. Trout are in the lakes year-round. Some of the fishing spots are walk-in, while others are drive-in and boat-in.
