Come enjoy spectacular fishing!

Terrace BC is located amongst a vast variety of coastal rivers and is blessed with some of the best wild salmon and steelhead fishing in the world. Close to the coast and protected by maritime air, fishing remains excellent most of the year. Steelhead provide great sport from March through November. Chrome-bright iridescent springs (King salmon) are available to the angler mid-April into September. Some of the worlds largest salmon and steelhead are found in the Skeena River and it’s tributaries.


Widely regarded as the worlds best freshwater sport fish they feed and fight aggressively with long runs and giant leaps. They’ll even take a fly skated on the surface. Skeena River steelhead are wild natives that average about 10 pounds with 20 pounders not uncommon and a few tipping the scales at 30 pounds or more. The Skeena River fish are some of the worlds largest. The Terrace area receives a summer, winter and spring run providing almost year round fishing opportunities.
