Hot fishing in Campbell River

Painter's Lodge and April Point Resort & Spa - August 20, 2007

Campbell River fishing is hot right now. We’ve had lots of guests catch their limits at Chatham Point, Browns Bay and Separation Head. Greensea Bay is still producing feeder Springs and Butler’s Bay is a great shallow fishing fishing spot for both Coho and Spring salmon.

Top catches over the past few days:

  • Hugh Green — 32 lb. Chinook
  • Mike Green — 23 lb. Chinook
  • Frank Gaba — 16 lb. Chinook
  • Scotty Brophy — 20 lb. Chinook

Of course, Pinks are here with a vengeance. We had 156 pink salmon hit the dock on the 19th of August!
