Sneak Peek at 4 BC Fishing Spots

With 25,000 lakes, tens of thousands of miles of rivers and streams, and more than 20,000 km (12,000 mi) of coastline, BC has no end of great places to fish.

And no end of fish. Chinook salmon, always a draw, sometimes tip the scales at over 32 kg (70 lbs).  The white sturgeon, which can weigh more than 500 kg (1,200 lbs), is the largest freshwater fish in North America. Steelhead, due to its hard-fighting reputation, is another favourite. To say nothing of rainbow trout, cutthroat trout, char, and whitefish.

From the interior to the Pacific coastline, here’s a sneak peak at four little-known BC fishing spots you might want to check out.
