Get Hooked on Vancouver Island

The waters around Vancouver Island are filled with trophy-sized salmon and halibut, as well as snapper, cod, crabs, clams, oysters, prawns, and more. The gentle currents and rich biodiversity make the region ideal for all types of saltwater fishing. No matter which community you’re in, from Port Hardy in the north to Victoria in the south, from Campbell River on the Island’s west coast to the eastern shores of Ucluelet, you’ll find world-class fishing year-round.

Charter a professional guide to take your group to the secret fishing holes that consistently produce the biggest salmon and halibut, or launch your own boat to go jigging off Port McNeill, trolling in Tofino, mooching in Port Renfrew, or crabbing in the Sooke harbour. Wherever the tide takes you, Vancouver Island has incredible saltwater fishing for everyone.

With nearly 10,000 lakes on the Island, freshwater fishing is practically within casting distance all the time. Snag a Dolly Varden in Comox Lake or a Steelhead in the Cowichan River, the Fly Fishing Capital of Canada. Watch for eagles and wildlife on the shores of the Nimpkish River, or cast a line from a houseboat on Sproat Lake. Cruise Buttle Lake to catch cutthroat in a secluded cove, or paddle around Cusheon Lake on Salt Spring Island to go after the smallmouth bass. If fishing is your element, you’re going to love Vancouver Island.

Treat Yourself to a Fishing Resort

Luxurious resorts offer world-class fishing and unique experiences that connect you with nature, exploring natural spaces few people ever have the chance to see. Many of the remote lodges are only accessible by float plane, helicopter, or water taxi, and offer incredible fishing, experienced guides, and high levels of luxury. Head out before the sun rises to be the first line in the deep waters of Blackfish Sound, Knight Inlet, Johnstone Strait, or Kingcome Inlet, or strap into a helicopter to gain access to some of the most remote lake and streams on Vancouver Island, filled with massive steelhead salmon and Dolly Varden, Char, Rainbow, and Cutthroat Trout.

Experienced anglers and newbie fisher-folk can catch their fill in the waters of Vancouver Island, creating memories to last a lifetime and traditions to enjoy year after year.

When it’s time to go fishing, it’s time to come to Vancouver Island.
