Both the scenery and abundance of wildlife will inspire you. As the landscape changes from day to day, so does the wildlife that inhabit the area. Countless bald eagles can be seen in the upper stretches of the Chilko River as well as mule deer, moose and black bears. The lower Chilcotin River and Fraser River have been designated a reserve for California bighorn sheep. Herds of fifty or more can be seen perched on the desert cliffs high above the river. This river system is also a major spawning ground for sockeye and chinook salmon. Fishermen should bring their gear, because the Chilko River boasts some of the finest trout fishing anywhere.
