Fish

Heading out for that unforgettable fishing experience? Dawson Creek is
naturally your choice.

Located in the foothills of Northeastern British Columbia, surrounded by many lakes, rivers and streams, Dawson Creek and the surrounding area is truly a four-season paradise. Spring, summer and fall provide visitors with great camping, hiking, biking, canoeing, hunting and fishing opportunities. Whether fishing from a lakeshore or a riverbank, you will appreciate the many choices available in the area to pursue “the big one”.

While fishing you will be exposed to some of the most pristine natural areas of the world; often treated to views of deer, moose, bears, elk, bald eagles and other wildlife. When you visit anytime between June and August, you will experience the endless hours of summer daylight.

During the winter months, take advantage of the crisp air and snow blanketed landscape that is enjoyed by skiers, snowmobilers and ice-fishermen.

While visiting the northern regions, it is possible that you may experience the thrill of of seeing the sky come alive with vibrant displays of Northern Lights!
