Hi Max, I live and guide in the Vancouver area, grown up here so can help.
There is so much fishing opportunity in BC it's hard to know where to start. If I was to pick my favorite fisheries within 5 hours drive of Vancouver I would choose to fish some stillwater lakes between Williams Lake and Kamloops for rainbow trout, there are lots of tropy lakes in this region, if you have a pontoon boat or belly boat you would be fine, might have to rent a skiff or pram on larger lakes. I would fish the Adams River large trout, I would fly fish the Upper Pitt river 1 hour east of Vancouver, you would have to hire a guide for that fishery. If your in the Vancouver area in the Fall you can also fly fish for salmon on the Fraser, Harrison, Stave, Squamish rivers.

If your looking to travel distances, I would travel to Skeena Region and fish some of the smaller rivers systems in that region, there salmon runs are earlier than the fraser so you could fish salmon in July, August.

My site is STS Fishing Guides - Fishing in British Columbia for Salmon and Sturgeon most of the information you will find is about Vancouver & Fraser Valley, I have lots or articles, where to fish and 140 fly patterns. For information on BC fishing I would suggest you visit these popular BC fishing websites.

Fishing in B.C. Canada is what AnglingBC is all about with fishing vacations, fishing lodges, fishing Guides, flyfishing and Salmon, Sturgeon, Steelhead fishing

Max is on it, and I'm familiar with STS guides. They are true pros.

I'm a Vancouver Fly fisher myself and am well aware of the many many rivers to be fished. We prefer the dry fly, and of course the Spey rods for salmon and steelhead. If I can help you out let me know.


Cowichan River (Vancouver Island) for Browns, Rainbows and Steelies
Elk River (and area) - incredible cutthroat fishing, all dry fly
Columbia River - Monster Rainbows on the dry
Skeena - hard to find a better system of rivers in the world for Steelhead

Good Day Everyone;

I'm new to the forum, I live on the East Coast of Vancouver Island in British Columbia at mid-island. I fish most species of salmon, sea trout and trout of inland water lakes of Vancouver Island. Before coming to the Island I lived in the Kootenay Rockies region and fished the alpine lakes & rivers of that region...
