Campbell River, BC

Historically renowned as the "Salmon Fishing Capital of the World", this Vancouver Island community is surrounded by Strathcona Provincial Park to the west and the Coastal mountain range to the east. Set in this spectacular surrounding, the Campbell River area has much to offer the visitor.

Although the salmon fishing is incredible, visitors don't have to limit their fishing to the ocean, the area is home of a multitude of fresh-water lakes and river systems. Year-round fishing opportunities abound for the knowledgeable angler. Campbell River is ideally situated to take advantage of other recreational activities.
