BC Fishing in and around Harrison Hot Springs

Harrison Hot Springs is surrounded by water making it a sport fisher's paradise. The beautiful surroundings, endless rivers, streams, and lakes along with the prolific wildlife, friendly people, and great accommodation options attract anglers from around the globe every year.  On the shores of Harrison Lake you have easy boat access to the Harrison River the first designated Salmon stronghold in Canada. In addition to Harrison Lake and River we are close to some other great fishing rivers teaming with salmon, steelhead trout, and prehistoric white sturgeon.

Nearby the mighty Fraser River is the main artery of millions of migrating salmon that pass through on the way to the spawning grounds. This river is home of the long-lived white sturgeon, the largest fresh water fish in North America. These monster fish grow to over one thousand pounds and live nearly 200 years. They are considered to be one of the most spectacular fresh water sports fish, having the reputation for their size, strength, and impressive jumps. 

There are great fly fishing opportunities as well.  Click here to read a great article on fishing in our area by local Guide Tony Nootebos to see what a guided trip could look like check out our guided fishing page.
