Our Fishing

Welcome to the sport fisher’s paradise! The beautiful surroundings, endless rivers, streams and lakes along with the prolific wildlife, friendly people and great accommodation options attract anglers from around the globe every year. We are conveniently located in the middle of the valley with several rivers that are very productive and popular due to the tremendous returns of wild salmon, steelhead trout, and prehistoric white sturgeon.

There are several very successful fish hatcheries that generate huge returns of hatchery fish to the local rivers as well. The mighty Fraser River is the main artery for millions of migrating salmon that pass through on their way to the spawning grounds. This river is home to the long-lived white sturgeon, the largest freshwater fish in North and South America. These monster fish grow to over 1000 pounds and live nearly 200 years. They are considered to be one of the most spectacular freshwater sports fish, having the reputation for their size, strength and impressive jumps.

The Fraser River provides us with the last healthy wild stocks of this species in the world. A catch and release fishery has been in place since 1994 and with monitoring done by our sport fishing guides in conjunction with the Fraser River Sturgeon Conservation Society tagging study our sturgeon fishing industry remains strong.

Steelhead and Trout Fishing

British Columbia offers many wild rivers and streams to enjoy, most of which are home to a large population of cutthroat, rainbow and bull trout. Some of our rivers have returns of wild
and hatchery Steelhead offering anglers a chance to sport fish for one of the hardest-fighting, fresh-water sportfish anywhere.

Typically 5lbs and better (20-26 inches in length) and often caught with only light spinning, often fly rods with small spinners, spoons, or
flies depending on current conditions and time of year.
