I’m going to tell you a secret about fly fishing

Cheryl Young's Blog

Forming its headwaters in a region studded

 with picturesque coves, beaches, islands,

rock cliffs, waterfalls, coniferous forests

 and the snow-capped Cascade Mountains,

the Harrison River is often overlooked by

serious anglers.


Perhaps it’s because there are so many

distractions in this magnificent region, just

90 minutes by car from Vancouver, British

Columbia – from the world-class amenities

at Harrison Hot Springs Resort to the full

range of backcountry adventure options in

pristine wilderness settings.


Whatever the reason for the oversight, it’s

a delicious secret: fishing in the Harrison

 River is nothing short of incredible.

Thousands of Chinook, Coho, chum, pink

and sockeye salmon, fresh from the ocean,

spawn each year in the short stretch of the

 Harrison River.


From mid-August to December the main

channel of the Harrison River and the

 Weaver Creek spawning channel are

 crammed with the brilliant red and green

flashes of mating salmon.
