Salmon Fishing Campbell River

Known as the “Salmon Capital of the World”, Campbell River is indeed blessed with an unbeatable combination of great BC salmon fishing and world-class resorts. Although saltwater angling is king, with Chinook, Coho, Sockeye, Chum and Pink salmon all being available, lakes and rivers in the area are also excellent.

Other destinations in Central Vancouver Island East area include: Johnstone Strait, Kelsey Bay, Sayward, Port Neville; mainland inlets such as: Loughbourough, Bute and Toba Inlet; as well as the fabulous BC salmon fishing areas around Sonora and Stuart Islands.

Chinooks are present in the area year round however migrations start moving into the area in earnest during late spring. By June fishing Campbell River for springs is good. Peak time is mid-August and then starts tapering off until mid-September when they start moving into their home streams to spawn.

Coho start arriving during the summer months and peak in September. Large northerns are best from late September through mid-October.

Fly fishing for these magnificent sports fish is becoming a popular BC salmon fishing technique, however more traditional methods such as trolling with bucktail flies, plugs, spoons, plug-cut herring, or mooching, drifting with live herring have a better success catch rate when salmon fishing Campbell River.
