Salmon Fishing

Free cancellation
The waters off Campbell River host 5 species of wild pacific salmon passing through on their migration back to the local rivers where they were spawned years before. Chinook salmon (AKA Spring, Tyee or King) can be caught all year round, but are most plentiful in June to late September as they move through Discovery Passage and the Sailish Sea to feed before returning to the spawning grounds. Pink salmon arrive in July followed by Sockeye salmon in August and it’s ‘game on’ with these species until mid September, when most have returned up stream to spawn and are replaced by the northern Coho and Chum salmon. These species are plentiful well into October and from then on it is the Chinook salmon know as ‘winter springs’ for the winter months until the following spring. The Bottom Fishing is always fun with good catches of Ling Cod. A beautiful table fish with a cold beer or a chilled white after any day on the water. Everyone fishing requires a B.C Tidal/Salt water fishing license and the salmon Conservation stamp if you want to keep your catch.
