The Alaska Highway crosses the Kiskatinaw River near Dawson Creek in North East British Columbia
The Kiskatinaw River flows along the west side of Dawson Creek in northeast British Columbia, before heading north around the town of Dawson Creek and flowing into the Peace River west of the Alberta/British Columbia border.

The source of the Kiskatinaw River is Bearhole Lake in Bearhole Lake Provincial Park and Protected Area (17,460 hectares) on the Alberta Plateau in the foothills of the Canadian Rocky Mountains.

Kiskatinaw Provincial Park, which has access to the river, is right beside the historic curved wooden bridge on Alaska Highway 97, offering good fishing for pike, and possibly bull and rainbow trout, right near the town. The bridge was built during the Second World War and constructed in a curved shape due to a hairpin curve in the river.

Even better fishing is found on the Peace River near its confluence with the Kiskatinaw River. Use the boat launch at Blackfoot Regional Park, northeast of Dawson Creek, near the town of Clayhurst.

For more information on fishing in the area, contact the Dawson Creek Visitor Centre, (250) 782-9595.
