Special Notes: Chinook runs usually start showing up around mid-May, however feeder springs are present year-round. The peak of the Tyee Chinook run occurs during late June to mid-July.
Coho start arriving in late July. Peak time from the second week in August through mid- September offers the angler great Coho fishing. The run will taper off in October when the fish move into their home streams to spawn.
Chum and Pink salmon are available to fishermen during August, September and October months. Although not as heavily targeted as Chinook and Coho, these smaller salmon are a lot of fun to catch and excellent smoked fare.
Halibut and Rockfish are present year-round and have been known to reach incredible sizes.
Lingcod are available in August, September and October. (See BC Fish Species)
