  • Community Information

    The Campbell River Region has been inhabited for at least 8,000 years – with good reason. The abundance of salmon and other bounty from the sea such as cod, clams, oysters and crab have always been an integral part of the appeal, whether for sustenance or sport. Long known for its focus on salmon, Campbell River owes much of its recent development to its identification as a sportfishing mecca. For at least the last hundred years, recreational anglers have been drawn to the migration of millions of salmon passing by on their way to the local rivers where they were spawned years before.

    There is rarely a time when an intrepid angler needs to retire his rod for lack of opportunity. For a truly unique experience with the fish, try snorkelling among the salmon on their way up river. The Campbell river has recently been designated as a BC Heritage River and toward the end of summer it become so crowded with salmon struggling upstream that it seems to come alive.
