About Us

Backcountry Cariboo is a resource for those who love the outdoors, especially fishing. Hosted by Jon and other guests, we hope to educate, entertain, and promote the outdoor lifestyle. We aren’t fishing or outdoors “experts” but we enjoy creating content, being in the outdoors, and leaving nature better than we found it. Enjoy the site and be sure to check out the YouTube channel for the latest videos!

We’re from Vancouver, Canada and spend a good chunk of time in central British Columbia (which is known as the Cariboo). One of our favorite things to do is catching monster fish (we try to). We fish for all types of species in all types of conditions.

Salmon, bass, halibut, you name it. Most of the time we’re fishing from shore but spend a good amount of time on the water as well. Canoes, kayaks, charter boats, and pretty much whatever else we can find.

Most of the time we’re in the Pacific Northwest where’s there’s pretty much every type of fishing out there. Rivers, ocean, and lakes are all nearby. There are hundreds of lakes in British Columbia and our home base is a place called Lac La Hache:

We also spend a few weeks per year ocean fishing in Campbell River on Vancouver Island. It’s known as the “salmon fishing capital of the world” and we’ve always come home with a cooler full of fish. We have friends that own Riptide Fishing Charters and they’re the ones we always go out with (we’ve made some YouTube videos with them).

We also ride a lot of dirt bikes. At the time of writing this, we have two. The first is a Yamaha TTR 125 that is mainly used to hunting just because it’s small and quiet.

The second is a Husqvarna FX 350 that is used for general trail riding.

We do a lot of other outdoor stuff as well so maybe in the future, we’ll talk more about that but as of right now we’re spending most of our time fishing and making fishing content.
