Salmon Fishing is our Passion and our Legacy in Campbell River

Come and enjoy the salmon fishing experience of a lifetime in Campbell River, the "Salmon Capital of the World" and the birthplace of salmon fishing on the west coast of Canada. Salmon fishing is our legacy in Campbell River. We fish the sheltered waters of the Inside Passage, the yearly Pacific salmon migratory route. Our years of experience of fishing these waters daily help us guide you to where the salmon are. Your heart will surge with adrenaline when the salmon hits and the reel-screaming action begins. Salmon fishing is our passion and with Campbell River being located on the central east side of Vancouver Island it allows us to fish all five species of Pacific Salmon as they migrate through our region. We also have the luxury of being able to offer prawning or crabbing as well as bottom fishing for delicious ling cod, red snapper and rock cod (seasonal) along with our salmon fishing.

Also, we encounter seals and sea lions, Pacific white-sided dolphins, porpoises, and black bears foraging on the shorelines.
