British Columbia hosts one of the largest Steelhead Trout populations in the world, the Fraser Valley being a great place to start. Steelhead Trout are available all year in some of our rivers, having both summer and winter run fish, while others only offer one. Steelhead are considered to be one of the most elusive of all North American game fish and when hooked put up a battle second to none. These fish are worth the effort.

Harrison Lake has a great population of wild Cutthroat trout some tipping the scale at 5lbs and better (20-26 inches in length).
