Winter Fly Fishing for Sea-Run Trout -Catch and Release

March 1 through May 15

Bella Coola River has an abundant resident stock of rainbow and cutthroat trout that reside along with Dolly Varden and mountain whitefish year-round in this coastal river, providing excellent fly fishing opportunities for intermediate or experienced anglers. In late winter and early spring, when salmon fry are hatching, large runs of coastal cutthroat trout, rainbows, and sea-run Dolly Varden also enter our rivers to feed on salmon fry.

Try your hand at an exceptional non-guided fishing adventure in the pristine Bella Coola Valley. With no crowds on the river-bars, no other angler pressure, and absolute wilderness, Bella Coola's winter  trout fishing will prove to be a memorable and rewarding experience.  We do not provide guided fishing, but can accommodate anglers looking for their own adventures at our lodge.  Spend a day on the river then relax at the lodge and enjoy our sauna and decks to reflect on the perfect day on the river!

Nestled at the head of a deep fjord extending from BC's outer coast, the ocean inlets near Bella Coola have bountiful clear, natural rivers and streams teeming with wild salmon. These river valleys provide natural corridors for bear travel, and when the salmon arrive, bears congregate at the rivers to feed in the long autumn days before the onset of winter.

Our tours operate from small, non-motorized drift boats and expedition rafts to provide guests personalized small-group or private excursions on rivers full of bears and salmon. Tours typically operate from mid August to October and we accommodate either private tours (2 guests) or small groups (Minimum 3 guests) and travel adventure groups. Custom Tours are set up to create easiest arrangement for visitors, including accommodations, transfers, breakfast, snacks and of course, guided bear tours. Evening meals arranged at Bella Coola Mountain Lodge in advance.

Please call or e-mail for specific package details as all tours are custom itineraries.
