FISHING IN BC is known world wide as one of the best angling experiences available to the worlds fishing fanatics! The fertile streams of western North America are the reproductive grounds for five species of pacific salmon. Millions of juvenile salmon annually leave fresh water after one year rearing in these streams and head north.

Every summer hundreds of thousands of mature salmon weighing an average of eight- fifty pounds start a massive migration back down the pacific west coast to search out their natal streams. The drive of these magnificent fish to conquer the many oceans hurdles and ability then find their river of origin is part of what makes them so special. Coincidentally anglers world-wide come to BC sport fishing in pursuit of these hard fighting and tasty quarry. Salmon fishing BC is truly an unforgettable experience for any outdoor enthusiast!
