Coastal British Columbia (B.C.)

Coastal British Columbia (B.C.) is known for its breathtaking natural beauty and sprawling river systems full of wild salmon, steelhead, and trout. Rugged landscapes, rushing rivers, and the largest temperate rainforest in the world, all make the coastal B.C. region a special place to visit. Each year, anglers from across the globe travel to B.C. in hopes of catching the fish of a lifetime.

The target species in coastal B.C. rivers are steelhead and salmon. These fish migrate from their open ocean homes, up the major rivers and into smaller tributaries where they spawn. Because migrations of these fish are staggered throughout the year depending on location, it’s always prime time to fish somewhere.

With steelhead and salmon hogging the spotlight, coastal B.C.’s fantastic trout fishery tends to be overlooked. Large populations of sea run cutthroat trout, bull trout, dolly varden, and resident rainbow trout live in the rivers and streams of B.C.’s coastal rainforest. The best part is, you’ll rarely find another angler on these rivers!

Coastal B.C. is an anglers paradise, offering a diverse range of species to catch and terrain to fish. Accommodation options and packages for coastal B.C. include: lodges, heli camps, jet boat trips, and day trips. Let us know how we can help you find the right destination for your next trip!
