ABOUT FLY FISHING IN BC:
The first good salmon fly fishing opportunities start in late July-early August on the Pitt River, where large sockeye salmon eagerly await to chase a swung fly. Every 2 years, on the odd years only, enormous Pink Salmon runs enter our rivers in Aug and Sept, creating a dream fishery for any avid fly angler. From mid Sept to late Nov, Coho Salmon & Chum Salmon arrive in great numbers as well, providing thrilling and tackle-busting fly fishing opportunities to novice and expert anglers alike. Although large summer Chinook Salmon are present in the river system in July and August, we don’t start fly fishing for them until late September, when the fall Chinook Salmon start showing up. October is our peak fly fishing month for the fall salmon species. Having proper equipment is a must, as empty spools and broken rods are not uncommon.
Steelhead fly fishing trips are a lot more challenging, but it is extremely rewarding and satisfying when you find, hook, and land a fly-caught steelhead. Best fly fishing for steelhead is from February to end of April.
Fly fishing for sea-run bull trout on the Pitt River exists from late May to mid July. Although year-round fishing is available for cutthroat and rainbow trout on some of our rivers, fall and winter/spring months produce better than average results.
