Rivers Inlet
There are some places in the world, fortunately, that are still inaccessible by road, and the rugged and beautiful Central Coast of British Columbia is one of them.

Carved deep into the rugged Coast Mountains of Canada’s wild and remote west coast, Rivers Inlet is one of the most famous sport fishing destinations in British Columbia with an impressive history of producing some of the largest Chinook salmon in the world.

The inlet is known internationally for the majesty of its scenery, its unspoiled wilderness and for the legendary trophy-sized chinook the King of Salmon - which draws anglers from around the world.

The pristine fjord of Rivers Inlet is an endless panorama of ancient mountains, virgin forests and abundant wildlife that is only accessible by boat and floatplane - 80 miles from the nearest road.

Rivers Inlet is a fjord in the Central Coast region of British Columbia, its entrance from the Dean Channel near that fjord’s mouth, about 125 km southwest of the community of Bella Coola and about 65 km north of the northern tip of Vancouver Island and the western entrance of the Queen Charlotte Strait.

The inlet is about 45 km in length from its head at the community of Rivers Inlet, which is a logging and fishing area. The main rivers feeding Rivers Inlet are the Kilbella River and its tributary, the Chuckwalla, and the 3 km long Wannock River, which feeds the head of Rivers Inlet and is fed by the freshwater fjord Owikena Lake, 50 km in length, and which is fed by the Tzeo, Sheemahant and Machmell Rivers. Machmell, the largest, is fed from the northern flank of the Silverthrone Icefield, one of the largest of the southern Coast Mountain icecaps, and which is capped by the volcanic caldera Mount Silverthrone.

Rivers Inlet is uninhabited aside from various fishing/logging operations and Dawson’s Landing. Dawson’s Landing is the only location where you will find fuel (both gas and diesel), a general store, a post office and a Government liquor store.
