Angling is one of the most popular activities in the park. Pink, Chinook, and Coho salmon, as well as char, trout and White fish are caught in the Bella Coola and Atnarko Rivers. The Dean River is renowned for its fly fishing. The backcountry lakes and rivers provide some excellent sport fishing for coastal cutthroat along the Turner Lake Canoe Circuit. The lakes of the area can be fished for Dolly Varden, cutthroat trout, and rainbow trout (depending on location). Favoured fishing gear range from flies (representing insect patterns) to tackle like spinners and spoons. Popular fishing gear for salmon include flies, artificial wool, spoons and bait (if regulations permit; consult regulations).
