Fly Fishing in British Columbia
If you like hooking into big, hard fighting fish, you won’t be able to resist the fly fishing British Columbia has in store. Casting flies in these waters could bring you five different species of Salmon, Steelhead, a variety of Trout, and much more. With countless coastal streams, freshwater rivers, and lakes throughout the province, you’ll be hard-pressed to decide where you would rather go next!
Where to go Fly Fishing
When the winter ice begins to thaw (known as the “ice-off”) various lakes throughout the province re-open to fishing just in time for a spectacular season.
How to Hook ‘em
You can target Salmon in the BC rivers by fly fishing below the areas where they spawn. Try using a 4-weight fly rod, a floating line, and strike indicators. Locals recommend egg or minnow patterns.
When fishing the lakes, choice baits for Rainbow Trout include chironomids (the larval stage of a fly), leeches, scuds, and juvenile damsel flies. For the best success, fish a chironomid under a strike indicator in a shallow area.
