(Fly Fishing Only)
Trout fishing for large sea-run Bull Trout is offered on one of our remote trout fly fishing adventures on the Pitt River. Fresh from the ocean and dime bright in color, these fish start entering the Pitt River system in May. They are quite abundant, extremely aggressive and will readily chase and engulf 4-6 inch flies…even on the retrieve. They have beautiful markings resembling a silver arctic char or a fresh water brook trout, and although they average 3-6lbs, we do get trophy fish up to 14lbs.
The Bull Trout fishery peaks in the month of June and tapers off again towards the end of July. While Bull Trout fishing, you can also encounter resident Cutthroat trout and Dolly Varden.
Trout Fishing On The Pitt River & Lillooet River
Trout fly fishing on the Pitt River offers a truly incredible and amazing BC fly fishing experience. The river itself is a gem. A glacier feeds its headwaters, so it runs a beautiful turquoise green during the summer months. It flows its way through a very scenic and remote valley, and is only accessible by helicopter or a custom jet boat. It’s a fairly fast moving river and experienced guides are required to navigate this tricky river system, as it changes quite regularly from season to season. The jet boat ride itself is worth the price of admission.
When trout fishing on the Pitt River, you have a great chance of encountering some wildlife, including bears, eagles, deer, and elk.
If you enjoy trout fishing and are looking for a unique and breathtaking BC fly fishing experience, then targeting the sea-run Bull Trout on the Pitt River might be a great option for you.
Once we move late into the fall & throughout winter, the Lillooet River system becomes a hot destination for fat & aggressive wild Rainbow Trout. Here you will also find eager Dolly Varden & Cutthroat Trout that are ready to snap at single eggs, nymphs & streamers. If you’re an avid & passionate trout fly angler, these two river systems offer some very unique fly fishing experiences.
