It’s a beautiful river to visit! It is also a great picnic area for couples or families. Many use this river as their boat launch to access the spring salmon

I was staying at the Skeena Spey lodge on the Skeena river in July, 2015, and our guide took us to the Kalum. Hooked several nice Chinook there. A beautiful small river accessible from its confluence with the Skeena river.

Didn't see anyone fishing, but my kids had a great time learning to skip stones from their dad. Great afternoon, water a bit fast running for my liking but I had one hand on the toddler the whole time. Beautiful place.

Water was low and the river clearer than my bathtub. Fishing was really challenging - but that is spring steelheading. A beautiful river that is the spawning ground for some of the largest spring steelhead around. Fishing the Kalum is an annual event for me!...More

This river flows out of Kalum Lake near Terrace, it has a fine run of big spring salmon as well as steelhead and the winter steelhead fishing is good. I recommend a guide.
