Silver Salmon Fishing in Canada

Silver Salmon Fishing in CanadaSilver salmon, also known as coho salmon, are an important species along Canada's west coast. Commercial fishermen in Canada depend on silver salmon as one of the main catches for the industry. Sport fishermen and anglers head to the waters of Canada's west coast to fish for the species. Silver salmon spawn between November and January, and the eggs hatch the following spring. The young salmon (known as "fry") then begin their seaward migration and return to the freshwater streams and creeks when they are 3 years old. Anglers ready to fish the waters for silver will be drawn to the province of British Columbia.
