Welcome to the North Central region’s unofficial “Outdoors HQ,” located in a natural wonderland famed for its kayaking, hiking, caving, wildlife viewing and, above all, sports fishing. Anglers from the world over have been reeling in all five species of Pacific salmon here ever since author Roderick Haig-Brown put Campbell River on the fishing map a century ago. Purists join the Tyee Club and stand thigh-deep in fast-flowing rivers. Parents and kids cast lines from Canada’s first saltwater fishing pier. Some visitors simply enjoy takeaway fish-and-chips by the sea or when dining on the catch of the day in a cozy restaurant. Didn’t bring your fishing rod? No problem, just head over to the Discovery Fishing Pier or the Campbell River Visitor Centre to rent one.
