Like the rest of the Sunshine Coast, Gibsons offers superb saltwater and freshwater fishing throughout the year.
Recreational and hardcore fishers have many options, surrounded by the pristine waters of Howe Sound, the Strait of Georgia, and local lakes and rivers. The Sunshine Coast is just a 40-minute ferry ride from Horseshoe Bay near Vancouver, so those visiting Vancouver can pop over for a day of fishing and return to the city by evening.
Visitors can head to historic Gibsons Landing, the site of the Gibsons marina, and go fishing right off the docks. Other options include chartering a fishing boat or fishing off a local beach.
Excellent saltwater fishing abounds in Davis Bay, adjacent to Sechelt (23km/14 mi north of Gibsons). June through September is the prime season for catching coho salmon. The Chapman Creek hatchery, situated at Wilson Creek between Sechelt and Roberts Creek, has played a major role in keeping local fish stocks high. Sechelt Inlet, north of Sechelt, burgeons with coho, pink and sockeye salmon (particularly August to September), and chum salmon (particularly September to October).
