The Bull River is popular for its West Slope Cutthroat trout. The Bull River starts up in the MacDonald Range and runs downstream 50 miles to the southwest to the Kootenay River confluence. You can expect to find cutthroat up to 14 inches long.

For fly fishing on the Bull River, many of the fishermen choose to float the river, but with Class II and Class III sections, you need a skilled guide. The best season is late July through August. There is a prolific hatch of caddis and mayfly.

Overall, Bull River is the 6th most popular fly fishing river of all 16 fly fishing spots in British Columbia.
