BC salmon fishing for sport is great fun for every age and is available year-round, though with huge runs coming through our surrounding rivers, it is a way of life here during the Fall. Every year millions of Pacific salmon, including those listed below, return to the Fraser River and its tributaries from the Pacific Ocean. Whether you want to catch and release on the fly, or take home a tasty meal after a day on the water, rest assured you will go home happy.
So plentiful in BC during the Fall local anglers find Chum salmon a nuisance during their challenge of angling species such as coho. Chum range up to 20 lbs and are terrific fighters, especially on the fly.
