Welcome To Fraser Valley Now Travel & Leisure
There are many places to fish throughout the Fraser Valley and all species of fish are season specific. We have provided an outline below to show what fish can be fished when as well as the different places you can actually fish.
Licensing is very important and you must have a valid fishing license to actually fish. Please visit this link to learn more about how and where to obtain a fishing license. Fish are a natural resource that needs to be protected so please make sure you do things the right and ethical way.

Keep fish immersed in water until you identify the species and its size. Help Ministry of Environment look after our fisheries by limiting your catch to your needs and never exceeding the legal limit. “Let them go, let them grow,” and practice “catch and release” when appropriate or required.
Each aquatic ecosystem is complex and unique. Prevent transfer of aquatic species or weeds from one water body to another. Never contaminate water bodies or shorelines with litter. For tips about how to dispose of fish wastes properly, see Angling Tips in Bear Country.
Share the water with other users. Practise good angling etiquette by:
– moving around a water body in patterns appropriate to your gear and local conditions;
– when in a boat give a wide berth to wading anglers, other boaters and swimmers;
– leaving adequate room between other anglers and yourself, especially flyfishers.
Always ask permission before entering private property, including Indian Reserve land. Leave natural areas as you found them, keep campsites clean and be careful with campfires.
Regulations are set to manage fisheries now and for the future and are based on the best scientific advice available. Acquaint yourself with daily quotas, size and possession limits, tackle and bait restrictions, and seasonal closures.
We can all help ensure that those who break the law do not spoil future angling opportunities for everyone. For more information, see Report All Poachers and Polluters (RAPP).
