The Harrison River Valley is surrounded by water, making it an angler’s paradise. The beautiful surroundings, endless rivers, streams, and lakes along with the prolific wildlife, friendly people, and great accommodation options attract anglers from around the globe. The mighty Fraser River is the main artery of millions of migrating salmon that pass through on the way to the spawning grounds. This river is home of the long-lived white sturgeon, the largest freshwater fish in North America. These monster fish grow to over one thousand pounds and can live up to 200 years. They are considered to be one of the most spectacular freshwater sports fish, having the reputation for their size, strength, and impressive jumps.
Harrison Hot Springs on the shores of Harrison Lake gives you easy boat access to the pristine Harrison River, the first designated Salmon Stronghold in Canada. In addition to Harrison Lake and River, our region includes the Fraser River and some other great fishing rivers teeming with salmon, steelhead trout, and prehistoric white sturgeon.
With so many lakes and rivers, there are great fly fishing opportunities as well. Learn more about the fish of the Harrison.
