Start your Salmon adventure with HLS Charters at Campbell River! Meet Captain Mike, who has over 30 years of experience targeting saltwater Salmon. These fishing grounds are not only a Salmon fishing scene, as you can enjoy gorgeous surroundings and marine life. In between your fishing battles, take a look at humpback whales, orca pods, sea lions, white-sided dolphins, and so much more.
You’ll be fishing on a 25’ Kingfisher that accommodates up to 6 guests. This amazing boat comes with a private toilet, a multimedia system, a lounge area, and an enclosed cabin. As each group of guests has members who are less enthusiastic about fishing, they can relax - this will be a comfortable ride for all of them.
The boat is powered by a 250 HP Mercury engine that can glide to any fishing spot in no time. There’s also downriggers for trolling, a live bait tank, and a cooler for the catch.
You’ll mainly troll for Coho and Chinook Salmon but they are not the only fish you can catch. If you like to try out bottom fishing, you can get yourself some Lingcod. If the season is open, you get to keep the catch and the captain will clean it for you free of charge.
All your fishing equipment is covered, so your main preparation is getting your fishing license. You can also pack some snacks and drinks and check the weather forecast so you can choose the right clothing for the day.
HLS Charters looks forward to seeing the excitement and smiles when you land your Salmon. Just say when you’re coming!
