Northern B.C.: Fly Fishing for Northern Coho

  

Overview

A river – or two – runs through it. Put on your waders and journey north of Prince Rupert. The shallow waters of the area’s many rivers attract spawning Coho Salmon looking for food and shelter. A skillful fly fisher – who has good timing – can also catch them on the nearby open ocean using dry flies.
