Trout fishing is great at Harrison Lake and Sasquatch Park Lakes from early spring through the summer months. Deer andTrout Lakes in Sasquatch Park are best fly fished with a small boat or float tube as there are not many shoreline access points. The Fraser River and Harrison River are home to the oldest fresh water fish on earth, the great White Sturgeon. The Sturgeon is known to live more than 150 years with lengths over 14 feet and weighing more than 1500 lbs. Although Sturgeon fishing is catch and release only you can’t beat the natural high of landing a “local dinosaur”. The Fraser River is also the largest salmon producing river in the world with millions of salmon swimming through the Valley from May through November. The Chinook (King) salmon being the largest and most powerful can be found from May to October. In July Sockeye salmon enter the river and from August 1st to 15th there is a 2 week period with literally millions of salmon passing through the area. In Mid August Pink salmon begin arriving and by early September the river and its tributaries are full of fish. Keep in mind the Pink salmon return in odd numbered years only! Coho and Chum eventually find their way up the river and are in abundance during the months October and November. Located only 95 kms from the ocean, Harrison and the surrounding area produce great catches of pacific salmon along the many gravel bars of the Fraser River. September and October are the peak months to catch salmon on a fly rod and if you don’t have the experience there are teaching guides available in Harrison Hot Springs.
