British Columbia Fishing Holidays: set in beautiful untouched wilderness, is home to some of the most exciting steelhead and salmon fishing in North America.
Every year the number of salmon that enter British Columbia’s rivers number in the tens of millions. All five species of Pacific salmon can be caught throughout the province. However, for many anglers, the real prize that British Columbia has to offer is the phenomenal runs of large wild steelhead (sea run rainbows). These fish are probably the hardest fighting and most acrobatic of all game fish and British Columbia has some of the most incredible and exciting steelhead fishing in the world.
