Chilko River and Lake is an important spawning and rearing habitat for Sockeye, Chinook, and Coho Salmon, as well as steelhead, Rainbow, Bulltrout, Dolly Varden, and Rocky Mountain Whitefish. The health of the Chilko is dependent on the keystone species of salmon that spawn and rear here.

My Big Trout Story

September is one of my favorite months. The sockeye salmon signal the autumn season as they come into the Chilko River to spawn and lay millions of eggs.  This is the fall feast for fish, wildlife, and everything under the Chilko sun.

This last fall I wanted to experience the joy of catching a trout on a dry fly, before the trout started to feed on the sockeye salmon eggs.
