The scenery steals the breath. Orcas frolic. Chinook salmon, the largest of BC's five salmon species, migrate through Port McNeill waters.
Trophy-size chinook, sockeye and pink salmon abound. Halibut and lingcod of Jurassic proportions are the treasures of the depths. Crabbing and prawning further diversify the burgeoning catch.
Calm Waters around Port McNeill
Yet what amazes many anglers most is the astonishing calm of Port McNeill's Broughton Archipelago, BC's largest marine park. Fisherfolk who prefer calm to the turbulence of open waters call Port McNeill their second home.
Size counts in these parts: the record chinook salmon caught locally weighed in at 39k/68lb. Halibut have come in as large as 119k/264lb and lingcod in the vicinity of 27k/72lb.
