Hey guys,

I have to plan a business trip up to Campbell river this summer and I figure I might as well plan it around some migrating salmon. Can anyone tell me when the salmon runs are there?

Thanks

If you are looking for pinks the run is usually from the end of august to the middle of sept. I usually go up there around labour day. If you go around then there will also be the odd spring and coho in the campbell or quinsam.
Good Luck

If you looking to catch springs when you come up here anytime from mid july to september you have a good opportunity to catch some springs but if you are just looking to catch any fish there is a large run of pinks and coho towards the end of august.

Planning a trip

I'm planning on a trip to Campbell River next year. When would be the best time to fish for Kings? Just a one day trip on the water. Any suggestions as to which charter would work best for 5 people? Any suggestion on accommodations?

Are you referring to the springs in the chuck or the river? I was under the impression that Vancouver Island spring runs in most river systems start at the end of August? Or is that when the bulk of the runs hits the rivers or when you are legally allowed to target and keep chinook?

I was fishing the campbell river last sunday and hooked into about 7 not so bad Pinks and alot of the other guys were too. Be sure to bring lots of hooks if you are fishin this river. I was just wondering were do you find the regs for if you can keep fish or not. I know that the Pinks in the campbell right noe are C&R.

Well it seems as though I'll be heading up to Campbell River on the 14th of August and staying for about 3 days. Any tips or directions on where to go? Is most of the fishing done in the chuck or up the river?

Browns Bay

Hello all,
If you are intersted in a saltwater sidetrip, and you are in Campbell river sometime soon, Browns Bay is boiling over with sockeye salmon right now. We are experiencing the largest sockeye runs in almost 50 years. They are bitting almost anything, but (obviously) red is your ticket to success. The fish should start moving on soon, so be quick about it.
Let me know if you go,


Mark
