Golden is an excellent fishing spot.
Golden is surrounded by spectacular mountain scenery and is home to unspoiled lakes and streams with great fishing. The fishing opportunities in and around Golden are endless, ranging from early and late rainbow trout, small cut throat trout in alpine lakes to char in the river and giant ling [burbot] and bull trout in the hydro reservoir.
Golden is situated on the Columbia River, which includes a vast selection of rivers and streams as its tributaries. These and the numerous lakes that surround Golden, offer fabulous fishing options for spin casting and fly fishing from the shore or boat.
Anglers can expect excellent sport fishing from early spring.
Make sure you have a valid fishing licence. These are available online at Fresh Fisheries Society of BC website or in person at the Service BC office located at 837 Park Drive, Golden. Phone: 250-344-7550.
