About Sockeye Salmon Fishing:
Sockeye Salmon are present in our rivers from Aug- mid Nov, with the best fishing times being in August… see “BC fishing calendar“. When fishing in BC, expect the Sockeye Salmon to arrive in our rivers as lean, silver fish, fresh from the ocean and in prime fighting and eating condition. As spawning time approaches, they turn to a beautiful and vibrant dark red color that makes them very visible in the clear rivers.
Its hard fighting abilities and great tasting meat (high oil content), makes this species one of the most sought after salmon in BC . This popular, summer-time fishery provides exciting fishing opportunities for everyone. It does attract a lot of additional fishing pressure, but during retention openings, there are plenty of fish for everyone. For most, this is a harvest fishery. With warm summer weather and exciting fishing action, this is a highly recommended fishery for family and group outings.
Please Note: This fishery is subject to retention openings and closures, so please check with us regularly for updated information.
