With the spring thaw comes a big salmon run right between Painter’s Lodge and April Point Resort & Spa.
Spring salmon fishing in Campbell River can really heat up and to get anglers excited we’ve created the Chinook Salmon Derby.
Every Chinook (Spring) salmon caught at Painter’s Lodge during the derby is automatically entered to win a prize. The angler with the biggest Chinook each day will win a prize (per resort). At the end of the weekend, we’ll tally up all the catches and award some huge prizes, including a trip for two to Painter's Lodge.
Grand Prize: 2 night drive-in fishing package at Painter’s Lodge
Second Prize: April Point Activity package – $100.00 credit at April Point Dining Room and your choice of a 4 hour guided fishing trip, Wildlife Adventure Tour or Tyee Row
Bonus Prize: 1 night accommodation at Painter’s Lodge
