Special Notes: Fishing Campbell River for Chinook Salmon
Chinooks are present in the area year round however migrations start moving into the area in earnest during late spring. By June fishing Campbell River for springs is good. Peak time is mid-August and then starts tapering off until mid-September when they start moving into their home streams to spawn.


Fishing Campbell River for Coho
Coho start arriving during the summer months and peak in September. Large northerns are best from late September through mid-October. Fly fishing for these magnificent sports fish is becoming a popular BC salmon fishing technique, however more traditional methods such as trolling with bucktail flies, plugs, spoons, plug-cut herring, or mooching, drifting with live herring have a better success catch rate when salmon fishing Campbell River.
