Whether out at sea, knee-deep in the Campbell River, or trolling across a still wilderness lake, sport fishers are in paradise here.
"There are some achievements which are never done in the presence of those who hear of them," wrote the British author Anthony Trollope. "Catching salmon is one." So it goes for thousands of Campbell River fishing enthusiasts annually as they rave about their reel-time adventures to friends and family back home.
Four Season Fishing
Ocean and freshwater fishing is a year-round passion. Chinook (with their black gums and spotted tail) can be caught (and, in most cases, released) 12 months a year in local waters. The four other varieties of Pacific salmon – coho, pink, chum, and sockeye – can reliably be reeled in from May to November. During the winter, the focus turns inland to lakes jumping with steelhead and cutthroat trout. Prawns, rockfish and mussels are also plentiful in local waters.
