‘The salmon capital of the world’
50North Adventures is equipped with all of the professional fishing gear you need for your “BIG” Salmon or bottom fishing experience.
The waters off Campbell River host 5 species of wild pacific salmon passing through on their migration back to the local rivers where they were spawned years before.
Chinook salmon (AKA Spring Tyee or King) can be caught all year round, but are most plentiful in May to late July as they move up and down Discovery Passage and the Sailish Sea, previously the Straight of Georgia.
Pink salmon arrive in July followed by Sockeye salmon in August and it’s ‘game on’ with these species until mid September, when most have returned up stream to spawn and are replaced by the northern Coho and Chum salmon.
These species are plentiful well into October and from then on it is the Chinook salmon know as ‘winter springs’ for the winter months until the following spring.
The Bottom Fishing is always fun with good catches of Ling Cod. A beautiful table fish with a cold beer or a chilled white after any day on the water.
Everyone fishing requires a Tidal water fishing license and the salmon stamp if you want to keep your catch.
Your B.C tidal fishing license can be purchased on line before you arrive and please make sure that you have it dated for the date of your fishing charter.
You can also purchase your license once you arrive here in Campbell River at one of two locations.
Tyee Marine in the heart of town or River Sportsman will do the license process for you. Please remember to have photo I.D with you if you choose to use either of these tackle stores.
Please remember to bring your license with you on the day of your charter!
You must have it with you when fishing.
Fish processing and shipping you catch can be arranged locally here in Campbell River if you require it.
