It’s a great experience even for people who’ve never fished before. Compared to salmon fishing in other areas, the salmon are only 15-20 minutes out of the marina, and you always have sight of land nearby.

Keep your expectations low. Campbell River is a mecca of salmon fishing but some days can be real slow which might force you to change area, lures or species to fish to get some action. But others days you just can't keep up with the bites.

Although we were in the spring and there were fewer salmon we still had a great time.

Don't expect a large amount of hits by Salmon, other species are more than willing to take the hook.

Go with Royce and Kelly at Northwest Saltwater Adventure Charters!! They know all the good spots, and their boat and equipment are top notch!

Absolutely. Our fishing was exceptional for this time of the year. Given that the salmon are not migrating at this time, fishing tactics were modified to target the fish in the area.

The captain admitted that the fishing is better prior to October but we had plenty of action.
