Your Destination For Best Fly-Fishing in Kitimat

Deep-Sea Fishing, Helicopter And Boat Tours In The Kitimat Area

The pristine Kitimat wilderness is home to some of the world’s best fly-fishing for trophy salmon and Steelhead. The Kitimat River and many more feeder creeks and rivers produce migrating salmon along this 90 km stretch of ocean to the Inside Passage. These well protected waters offer exceptional fishing for Chinook and Coho salmon as well as some of the largest halibut found on the BC coast. You can fish the easily accessible Kitimat River, or for the more adventurous, the many remote fly-in areas that provide spectacular scenery, tranquility, and great fishing. Depending on the species you seek at the time of year you visit, the fishing opportunities are endless here.

As you experience the salt spray and ocean wind, be on the lookout for sea lions, eagles, orcas, humpback whales and dolphins at play. You may even be presented with the opportunity of seeing bald eagles as they pick a salmon from the salt water or dolphins swimming alongside your boat.

When the challenges of catching that trophy fish have you exhausted, relax in the sulphur-free, natural hot springs of Bishop Bay, Shearwater or Weewanie.
