wild rainbows amidst spectacular scenery
Located in the central interior of British Columbia, the Blackwater River drains a vast hinterland from the Coast Range Mountains eastward through the Fraser Plateau to the Fraser River. Expansive grasslands and muskeg swamps with countless trout-filled lakes in the headwaters provide a slow release effect which maintains optimum river fishing conditions.
The Blackwater ranges in width from 75 to 150 feet with a number of rocky canyons that narrow to less than ten feet as it cuts deeper through the plateau to the Fraser River. You often see bald eagles, osprey and kingfishers feeding along the bank, black bear, moose or mule deer on a sunny gravel bar.
