Fishing in Prince Rupert
Prince Rupert and the surrounding areas are a fisherman’s paradise. The local lakes offer plenty of fishing opportunities. Close to Prince Rupert is Prudhomme lake where you can find steel-head, rainbow trout and Dolly Varden. Then there is Lakelse Lake outside of Terrace, BC where fishing opportunities abound for most lake fish. Another close by lake is Onion Lake near Kitimat, BC. Great fishing here for Rainbow and Cutthroat trout as well as Dolly Varden.
If your interest is in river fishing it is hard to get past the Skeena River where steel-head fishing is some of the best anywhere. All five species of salmon are found on the Skeena River during the salmon runs, particularly in July. Then there is the Kitimat River, Kalum River, Lakelse River and Copper River … all have spectacular fishing opportunities.
