Ocean Fishing

Prince Rupert? Port Edward? Kitimat? Stewart?

Prince Rupert

From Prince Rupert you can launch your independent adventure, or hire the services of one of the experienced and knowledgeable local guides for a half day, full day or overnight trip. The Northwest Coast offers more fish, with fewer crowds. Make your dreams come true in this sport fishing paradise.



Kitimat is an ocean fishing hot spot for visitors, many of whom return yearly. Saltwater fishing is also a favourite pastime for locals, and with good reason: fish around Kitimat – an area with stunning forests, mountains, and wildlife – are plentiful while crowds are not.


Stewart sits on the tidelands at the top of the Portland Canal, the world’s fourth longest fjord, where saltwater fishing is truly exceptional. The Portland Canal stretches for 145km/90mi until it hits open sea, with Ketchikan to the north and Prince Rupert to the south. The quiet surroundings and snowy peaks are a perfect background for a day at sea. Prize catches include all five species of Pacific salmon, halibut, shrimp, prawns and crab. Many anglers will no doubt see wildlife, too – eagles high above, bears and wolves on the shore, and maybe even whales.
