FishingSaltwater anglers can expect great peak-season salmon fishing along our magnificent coastline. The Strait of Georgia is a major salmon migration route and is accessible from any of our communities, from Gibsons to Earls Cove. The deep waters of Pender Harbour are famous for giant lingcod, in addition to salmon. Shellfish include prawns, crab, oysters and clams. The Coast's charming little villages make great bases for fishing the many mountain-fed streams and lakes full of steelhead, cutthroat and rainbow trout.
To ensure a rewarding fishing experience, charters and guides are recommended. Charter operators, equipment and boat rentals, and welcoming fishing resorts are plentiful. If you are travelling with your own boat, there are many opportunities for moorage along the Coast.
Fishing licences are mandatory in British Columbia and can be purchased at marinas. Look for the free British Columbia Freshwater & Saltwater Sport Fishing Guide at Visitor Info Centres.
