Fishing along the Fraser River.

Whether you are looking for a day of top-notch bar fishing or just a great family fishing day, the region offers plenty of lakes, rivers and streams.

Sockeye salmon run throughout the summer, spring salmon run from May to December, and pink salmon run in the fall. The Fraser River is also known for its sturgeon fishing with many guides operating fishing excursions within our region.

In Manning Provincial Park, a chain of four small lakes, dubbed the Lightning Lakes, are a great spot for families to fish for trout from shore or canoe.

In Hope, Kawkawa Lake is a popular Kokanee fishing spot. Lake of the Woods, just north of Hope, is stocked annually with rainbow trout. Jones, Ross and Silver lakes are also popular spots for wilderness camping and fishing. In the Fraser Canyon, the three remote Nahatlatch lakes offer some great fishing opportunities.

For the fly fisher, the Skagit River is considered by some to be the best dry fly stream in the province.

Silver Creek is steelhead and rainbow trout heaven and the Coquihalla River offers steelhead and dolly varden. Both waterways are highly regulated, so anglers are advised to check for closures and gear restrictions prior to heading out.

For licensing and regulations, visit Lakeway Market on Kawkawa Lake Road.
