Saltwater Fishing in BC

Along the coast, reel in a prize salmon, wrestle a massive halibut, and then kick back at a floating lodge moored in a forested cove. That’s saltwater fishing in British Columbia. Salmon are the draw here, but so are giant halibut, rockfish and lingcod. The season? Right now. Saltwater fishing in BC is a year-round activity.
