Fishing

Our main camp is a stone's throw from the Steelhead Capital of Canada.  The Morice River is known for its amazing steelhead fishing, and is said to have the largest return of steelhead anywhere in the world.

 

Steelhead fishing on the Morice opens at the beginning of September and runs through the fall.  We do not guide for fishing, though we can make arrangements in advance for licensed fishing guides, or you can fish self-guided.  Either way our comfortable lodgings serve as a convenient base camp.

In addition to steelhead, five different salmon species inhabit these waters including chinook, pink, chum, sockeye, and coho. The chinook salmon are the top producers in the Morice, with the season starting in mid-July and running to late August.  The Morice is also home to rainbow and cutthroat trout.  Fishing is from shore with a fly or hard tackle, or by boat. Shore fishing is a mix of drive-in access and walk-in, and spots can be just a few minutes from camp to more than an hour away. There is also plenty of lake fishing opportunities for trout, burbot, char and Dolly Varden.

Note that all anglers 16-years-old and over, residents and non-residents, require a license to fish. Licenses are available at www.env.gov.bc.ca/fw/fish/licences/.  Careful attention must be paid to restrictions on species and when, where, how and by whom they may be fished. Regulations are at www.env.gov.bc.ca/fw/fish/regulations/#Synopsis
