The waters on and around Vancouver Island are so prolific that both the "Salmon Capital of the World" (Campbell River) and the "Fly Fishing Capital of Canada" (Cowichan River) are found here.
Surrounded by the rich waters of the Pacific Ocean, Vancouver Island – recognized by Condé Nast Traveller magazine as the "Top North American Island" for seven years in a row – is known worldwide for its saltwater and freshwater fishing.
From Port Hardy and Rivers Inlet in the north to Victoria in the south, from the Pacific Rim communities in the west to Campbell River in the east, this region offers excellent year-round sport fishing opportunities. Most communities on Vancouver Island lie on or near the ocean, meaning anglers have nearly unlimited fishing opportunities, tours and services.

FISHING CLOSURES: Please note that streams and rivers in several areas of the province are currently closed to angling, due to low water levels and warm water temperatures. For more information, visit the BC Government Freshwater Fishing Regulations page.
