Village of Telkwa, BC, at the junction of the Telkwa river and the Bulkley River.

Village of Telkwa
British Columbia

You can salmon fish the river from Main Street in Telkwa, a forestry and agriculture village on the TransCanada Yellowhead (hwy 16). While many not want to fish in this manner, the entire area can provide great steelhead, salmon and trout fishing. The town's name is Wet'sewet'en for "where the waters meet", Telkwa being at the junction of the Telkwa and Bulkley Rivers.

There are many heritage buildings in the town to take you back to the turn of the century, when the area first became settled for agriculture and later became the economic centre of the valley. Today the area is also known for its many possibilities for the outdoor enthusiast. Hiking, wildlife viewing, fishing and heli-skiing throughout the Bulkley Valley, fossil hunting at Driftwood Canyon Provincial Park or camping, picnicking and boating at nearby Tyhee Lke Provincial Park are just some of the activities to be experienced in the area.
