Best BC Fishing Spots for Aluminum Boats

One of the great things about aluminum boats is that you are not limited to where you can go by the material the boat is made from. The only things that will determine where you can take your aluminum fishing boat are the size and design of the boat, the motor’s horsepower, and how prepared you are for different fishing waters. Some of the best places to go boat fishing in BC include:

Haida Gwaii

Haida Gwaii is an archipelago that is only accessible by boat or floatplane, and it offers amazing Pacific fishing. It is well known for having some of the best salmon fishing in the world. It may be difficult to access, but it is one of BC’s best fishing spots and a hidden gem.

Fraser River

The Fraser River is a diverse river system with access to trout, steelhead, sturgeon, and millions of salmon. It is a tidal river with sections of brackish water, and it runs through the entire length of BC’s Lower Mainland, making it accessible for fishing trips from various access points.

Quesnel Lake

BC is home to many excellent fishing lakes, and Quesnel Lake is one of the best. Located northeast of Williams Lake, Quesnel Lake is an incredibly deep fjord lake and it is home to a massive variety of fishing options. People come to Quesnel Lake from all over the world for its trophy-class trout.


BC’s capital city is home to some of the most accessible and excellent Pacific Ocean fishing in the world. Boat fishers out of Victoria can expect access to halibut, rockfish, shellfish, and, of course, salmon.
