It then continues onward past Abuntlet and Lessard Lake towards Tweedsmuir Provincial Park. This upper headwater section of the river is accessible by boat and is best known for its resident wild rainbow trout. Once inside Tweedsmuir Park, the Dean River turns to the west, travelling downward through the Coast mountain range to the Dean Channel and out into the Pacific Ocean. The lower portion of the Dean, from the mouth of the river to Crag Creek, is the salmon and steelhead section and can only be reached by boat via Dean Channel or by air.
