River Fishing on Vancouver Island

While Vancouver Island is world famous for its ocean water fishing, it also boasts some amazing river fishing. Every year, anglers from around the world converge on some of the biggest rivers on the island for the annual salmon runs.

The Campbell and Quinsam River system is very popular, and on any given fall day you can find both local residents and anglers from places as far away as Italy standing side by side in the water.

Fly fishing on all the local rivers is a challenging and fun way to spend a day, while spin casting can also get the job done. Fishing on a river in the fall is a great way to connect with the outdoors and spend some time in the fresh air. It doesn't require a boat, just a rod and some gear (although waders definitely make it a better adventure in the fall when it is colder).

Drive by any of the Vancouver Island rivers in the fall (and there are a lot of them) and you are sure to see an angler or two (or many more) flicking a rod into the water. Just another amazing aspect of west coast living.

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