Hey gang so I know I wrote a post earlier about Stuart and dent island but I also just found out that my folks are ok with swinging by the cambell river or pretty much any of the discovery islands. Any thoughts on those places in late July/early August? I'd really appreciate any feedback!

Its a great place to visit and a great area to cruise, but the fishing is not very good. Like so many places, Campbell River just isn't what it used to be.

Talk to some of the locals and put your time in. Fish the tides and structure. It is picking up the last couple of years in Campbell River. It's not the salmon capitol of the world anymore but the fishing isn't non existent either. There are spots in the area for ling cod, halibut (rare), and rockfish. Not just salmon. Crabbing and prawning are great in the area as well.

Cheers,
John
