These fish are chrome bright and full of fight. Size ranges from 3 to 10 lbs with lots of fish in the 4-6 lb range. Some of the larger fish can reach as much as 14lbs. This is one of British Columbia’s Premier fisheries with limited access and a wilderness experience. We also target Cutthroat on the Fraser & Harrison Rivers as trout feeding on salmon fry migrating back to the ocean.
August 1 to October – offers some unique fly-fishing for Trout on some of our harder to reach river systems like the Lillooet and Pitt Rivers. Early salmon runs have reached their home waters and begin preparing their spawning grounds. During this period the trout take position laying behind the salmon waiting for any loose or drifting eggs. We target these trout using by dead drifting egg patterns.
