November 2023 Fishing Report
November 17, 2023

Summer fishing madness is still in full swing. The river mouths are swelling with species of staging salmon attempting their final journey of life. This point of the year has a certain primal energy that can be understood only by spending time
on the water and acknowledging the journey in the salmon’s life.

All the boat launches and the local hotspots will continue to be very busy for the next month. It’s important for everyone to be courteous and safe on the water. Know some basic rules, and remember that whoever has the right rod to the shore has the right of way. We all like to be tight to the rocks, but if we all gave the right of way to others it would limit losses during hookups.

Fishing The Pier

Experience the history and culture firsthand at Campbell River’s Discovery Pier. The pier extends 150′ from shore and is 600′ long with accessible views that span across Discovery passage. It’s C a fun spot for anglers without boats— visitors and locals alike. There are evenM rod rentals available through Labour Y Day, so anyone traveling through can create some fishing memories. Don’t CM forget to support local businesses like MY tackle shops, and enjoy a tasty ice cream cone or fish & chips.

Tyee Pools

The Tyee pools are still providing anglers with opportunities for a special fish. Make sure you understand the regulations and boundaries to fish in the pools. If you want to join this historic club and become a member, check out the Tyee Club of BC at www.tyeeclub.org.

I’ll end this report with two of my favourite fishing quotes.

“One thing becomes clearer as one gets older and one’s fishing experience increases, and that is the paramount importance of one’s fishing companions.”
—John Ashley Cooper

“There’s a fine line between fishing and just standing on the shore like an idiot.”
—Steven Wright
