With year-round runs of steelhead, chinook, and coho, the Tahsis Inlet area and Maquinna Resort bring the freshwater enthusiast world class fly and spincast fishing. The isolated nature of the region ensures a relaxing and private fishing adventure. Anglers do not need to be concerned about getting their lines snagged on overcrowded riverbanks with plenty of remote waters teeming with local populations of fish. The consistent and great catches ensure that you will want to visit again and again for unmatched fishing and wildlife.
Steelhead is readily caught on the Gold, Heber (fly fishing only), Conuma, Leiner, and Sucwoa rivers. Anglers will find large quantities of Cutthroat and rainbow trout in the Muchalat, Malaspina, and Deserted Lakes.
February is very similar to January in fishing conditions and opportunities.
March is very similar to January in fishing conditions and opportunities.
April is also very similar to January in fishing conditions and opportunities.
The Elk River is now available for fly fishing, and trout opportunities will increase as salmon fry are emerging. Rivers which empty into the ocean will begin to populate with sea-run cutthroat as well if the melting snow provides adequate water levels. The Steelhead population will begin to thin and diminishes greatly towards June. Dry fly and wet fly fishing in lakes and rivers will be at its best through September.
Both Cutthroat and Rainbow trout are available as the Steelhead populations are gone at this time.
July is very similar to June.
August is like June, but towards the end of the month chinook salmon will become available.

The latest runs of coho on the Conuma, Gold, and Leiner Rivers. Most rivers will be fairly empty at this time.
Depending on the winter weather, Steelhead may be available in December.
As always, any anglers looking for some of the world’s best fishing should always check local freshwater regulations before heading out to any rivers, streams or lake systems. There may be gear, bait, and/or limit restriction changes since your last visit or may differ from your local region so make sure you know the rules. Changes may occur without any warning during any time of the year. These regulations are freely available online at the Ministry of Forests, Lands, and Natural Resource Operations, located at http://www.env.gov.bc.ca/fw/fish/regulations/
