Difference Between Trout and Salmon
Are you able to easily distinguish the difference between a trout and a salmon? Below the picture are a few key differences between a Sea Trout and a Chinook Salmon.
The first difference is between the tails. Salmon have a concave tail while the tail of a Trout is square sometimes even convex.
Another big difference is in the body markings. Salmon have very few markings/spots below their lateral line. Trout, on the other hand, have a large number of markings below their lateral line.
THE TAIL BASE
Salmon have a narrow tail base with a noticeable wrist. The wrist being the part of the body that connects to the tail. Trout have a wide tail base and their wrist is not very noticeable.
The following guide is a Salmon and Trout identification guide

Purchase your Fresh Water Fishing License
Purchasing a Freshwater Fishing Licence is important. It’s important because it allows BC to keep track of the number of fishers in our Province. This helps them to calculate the number of fish being harvested, which helps BC guard the preservation of our fish. You can purchase your BC fishing licence at a store (Mountain Man Outdoors carries fishing licences) or online at the following link: http://www.fishing.gov.bc.ca/.
To buy a licence online...
- A computer connected to the internet.
- A printer to print your licence.
- A valid credit card number.
- And an angler number (you can also get this online [same link or web page]).
It’s very simple, so please do your part in preserving our fish.

BC Fishing Synopsis
Fishing is a great thing to do by yourself or with some friends and family. You get to be out in the middle of a beautiful lake or river; watching the little critters and occasionally some big ones too (watch out for bears during the salmon run especially); and hopefully catching a fish or two. There is great pleasure in bringing home a fish for dinner, but also in just catching one and then letting it loose again. Due to the current climate and world events, not every lake and river is fishable anymore. This is to preserve our fish and natural resources. So please be respectful of our Provincial regulations and check the Synopsis before you go out to see if that fishing hole is actually fishable. Below are the Fishing Synopsis for each area in BC.
