Check out the “Cheak.” You won’t be disappointed.

This river is named for a special fish weir or trap called a chiyak used by the local First Nations to harvest salmon. Needless to say the kayak fishing here is really good for not only salmon, but also steelhead, trout, and char. The “Cheak” is also one of the most popular whitewater runs in the province: the upper section offers intermediate and expert paddlers continuous river running at its finest (class IV) while the lower section is mellower (class II-III) and better for newbies
