Pitt River Fishing British ColumbiaFishing the Pitt River in British Columbia is a journey of a life time. We highly recommend our guests to fish this area at least for 1 day during their visit. We fish for salmon from July to November, Steelhead during March and April and for a variety of trout March to November.

The Pitt River is accessible by crossing Pitt Lake, about 1 hour outside Vancouver. The only access is by helicopter or jet boat. The area is cut off from any city or access and is a preserved Eco system where black and grizzly bears, Roosevelt elk, cougar, bobcat, deer, bald eagles and endless other species call home.
The months of June & July offer a highlight fishery for the famous sea run bull trout.
We filmed the show "Natural Fly Fishing" which gives you an insight into the trout fishery on this amazing river. We know every corner, run and riffle. Experience is everything when it comes to fishing remote waters like that.
Salmon fishing on the Pitt River starts is later July with the migration of the largest and heaviest sockeye salmon in the world along with big chinook salmon, also known as king salmon by our American friends. September and October is the time where the silvers, also known as coho salmon show up. This is a very special time of the year when you can see the fish in the deeper pool and slow moving water taking eagerly your fly or spoon.
Steelhead trout are in the Pitt River during March and April. We fly fish for steelhead either single or double handed (spey), but also spin, spoon and float fish with some of our proven colors or blades and fly patterns.
