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.

Fishing in May is a bit slower than July or August but it is not crowded. The pace of life is slower and the crowds are smaller which is what we wanted. We did not expect to Catch a large amount of fish but wanted the experience of fishing for salmon and being on the spring waters. Chris was a great guide and nice person to meet and fish with in the future. Had a good day and look forward to many meals from our salmon in the summer months ahead!

I would recommend to take in advance more information about the exact period that the salmon is migrating and gathering at the estuaries for the yearly run upstream. This is quite different from one location to another. And it is also different from one species of salmon to another.

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.
