Fishing

The Nitinat River is home to steelhead, salmon and a variety of fresh water species. The pools within the canyon are closed to fishing, while the Nitinat River bridge pool is an open area for fishing. Fishing is permitted as per provincial and federal fishing regulations.

For up-to-date information, all anglers should check all current and relevant freshwater (non-tidal) sport fishing and tidal water sport fishing regulations, including the appropriate licensing requirements, prior to fishing.

Wildlife viewing
Nitinat River Park provides excellent viewing opportunities of steelhead and salmon in the pools below the falls above Parker Creek. Rare plant species and old-growth Douglas fir and Western hemlock can also be seen in the park. Also of note is the river itself, which carves through this lush forest in a series of spectacular falls and quiet, clear pools.
Pets on leash

Pets and domestic animals must be on a leash at all times and are not allowed in beach areas or park buildings. You are responsible for their behaviour and must dispose of their excrement. Backcountry areas are not suitable for dogs or other pets due to wildlife issues and the potential for problems with bears.
