Winter Fishing

The cold and damp doesn't deter the desire to fish, and so winter finds many people out on the water.

January means the arrival of the winter Springs, and salmon fishing off Campbell River is very popular on days that the water isn't too rough. A crab trap or two dropped over the side of the boat on the way out to the fishing grounds is just a good use of time.

River fly fishing is also active in the winter months. Good waders and warm boots are a requirement. Steelhead in particular are active in January and February in Gold River, the Stamp River and Cowichan River among others.

Lake fishing isn't as common, as many of the smaller lakes are frozen at least at the edges for much of the winter.

For true lovers of fishing, Vancouver Island is a year-round paradise.

It's a Coastal Lifestyle ... Live It!
