Salmon, Trout and Steelhead Fishing.
The Kitimat River is a river in the Canadian province of British Columbia. Its drainage basin is 2,054 square kilometres (793 sq mi) in size.
The Kitimat River flows generally south into Kitimat Arm at the head of Douglas Channel.
From white water rapids suitable for the experienced oarsman or slow moving drifts the Kitimat River can accommodate any boater. The upper drifts are for the professional while the neophyte can navigate the lower drift with little risk.
With large runs of good clean silvers entering the river well into October, the Kitimat River can produce some of the best coho fishing in the world. There is no shortage of fish here. As well as excellent salmon fishing the Kitimat has a world class cutthroat trout fishery with fish exceeding the 5lb. mark caught every fall. On light tackle or fly gear, fisherman can have a ball with these colorful acrobatic fish.
Kitimat is truly a sport fishing paradise, with steelhead, chinook, chum and coho salmon all making their way up the Kitimat, not to mention the feisty resident population of cutthroat trout. The spring run of steelhead peaks in early May, and continues to the middle of the month, chinook start arriving in late May, providing anglers with memorable battles through June and the first part of July. Chum arrive in late July and August, with coho providing the fight in late August and the beginning of September
