Chinook Salmon (King Salmon)
|Late July - Mid October
Chinook Salmon fishing in British Columbia, Canada is spectacular. The Chinook Salmon, also called the King or Spring, is the largest of the 5 salmon species, and can weigh in at over 60lbs. My most memorable guiding experience was with one of these strong fish. We fish for spring salmon from early July in the wild till late October. Prime time is August (opening pending) to mid October on local rivers and tributaries.
Coho Salmon (Silvers)
|October - November
The Coho, which migrates in our local rivers annually, can be caught with various angling methods. Famous for its clean, silver skin, it has earned the nickname "Silver Salmon" and is one of the most beautiful fish to catch. Coho Salmon can be caught as early as mid September until mid November.
|August - mid September
Sockeye Salmon Fishing in British Columbia, Canada, on the Fraser River means the largest Sockeye run in the world. The Sockeye, well known by gourmets for its deep red meat, is equally as appealing and challenging for the angler. 2022 projects a record run of sockeye salmon - the 3rd return of the ginormous 2010 run from August until mid September.
Chum (Dog Salmon)Mid September - November
The Chum, or Dog Salmon, is the most aggressive of all the salmon species. Simply, they attack everything. Once while releasing a foul hooked Chum, he attacked my leg and bit out a chunk of my neoprene waders. Our lodge record is 350 chum salmon in one day with 8 anglers. Chum Salmon can be caught from September until the beginning of December.
We fish for Chums in 4 different local rivers on the fly, via spinning method, float fishing, jig fishing and bottom fishing, depending on your preference and which water we fish at the time.
A very attractive way for Chum fishing is in one of our wilderness rivers during the month of October to the beginning of November on the fly or via spinning method.
Pink (Humpies)September - mid October (Odd years only 2019, 2021 ...)
Pink Salmon is probably the best fish, to get the novice hooked on sports fishing. Recently, I guided a father and his son. The father, which was new into fishing, caught his limit within 2 hours and since then, he is an enthusiastic fisherman. The Pink Salmon show up in huge runs of up to 20 million fish every odd year.
Bring your family and let them experience extraordinary salmon fishing.
Pink salmon fishing offers us the most versatile options in order to catch salmon. From fly fishing to bait fishing, spin and spoon fishing or bottom fishing. If you want to hit "prime time" for pinks, visit us from the 2nd week of September to the 4th week of September and experience one of those legendary salmon migrations of the world you normally only see on television.
