Why should I visit Campbell River?
Campbell River bills itself as the Salmon Capital of the World. One of the four main fishing centres on Vancouver Island, the city is internationally famous for both its ocean and freshwater fishing. The twice-yearly steelhead runs on the Quinsam and Campbell Rivers are as well known as that on the Cowichan River, while the year-round salmon fishing in Discovery Passage is unmatched. Here you’ll find some of the best fishing outfitters on the island. Campbell River is also a stopping point before beginning your bear watching holiday at Knight Inlet Lodge or to access Sonora Resort.
