Bounty of
Babine Lake



Rainbow Trout and Char make Babine Lake an angler's paradise year round and Sockeye Salmon, which return here to spawn from late summer to early fall, are truly legendary.

Up to 70 per cent of the salmon from the Skeena River system originate in Babine Lake and the spawning channels at its local tributary, the Fulton River. Every year, millions of sockeye hatch at this, the world's largest man-made spawning channel. They migrate to the ocean via the Babine and Skeena Rivers, and three to five years later, about half a million return to spawn. From late summer to early fall, the water fairly blushes with spawning salmon--delighting all salmon-lovers, including bears, eagles and humans.

Cutthroat, Steelhead, and Rainbow Trout also abound in Babine Lake as do Coho Salmon, Burbot (ling cod), Lake and Mountain Whitefish.

Don't miss the popular Father's Day Fishing Derby in June or the Babine Lodge Fishing Derby in July! Refrigeration, bait, licenses and tackle are available at Granisle's general store and major lodges.

Healthy populations of moose, dear, bear and mountain goat also make the Central Babine a popular hunting destination. Trust a qualified local guide to unlock the bounty of the Babine for you.
