A Stone's Throw from Prime Fishing Spots on Vancouver Island

Vancouver Island is renowned for its diverse and abundant fishing opportunities, and Beach Acres Resort is strategically positioned to take full advantage of this angler's paradise. From the well-stocked rivers and lakes perfect for fly fishing to the deep ocean waters that promise a bountiful haul, every fishing style and preference is catered to.

Fly Fishing Vancouver Island: A River Runs Near

One of the highlights for fly fishing enthusiasts is the proximity of Beach Acres Resort to several rushing freshwater streams and rivers. Renowned for their steelhead, salmon, and trout populations, these waters offer fly fishers the serene environment necessary for the perfect cast.

Cameron Lake, surrounded by spectacular mountains and provincial parks, is a fantastic spot for trout fishing, while the Englishman River is renowned for its pools of pink salmon, cutthroat trout, and steelhead, making it a great choice for fly fishing enthusiasts.

A bit further north, Campbell River is famously referred to as the "Salmon Capital of the World" and offers exceptional opportunities for both saltwater and freshwater fishing.

Saltwater Treasures: Fishing Vancouver Island

Saltwater anglers will delight in the closeness of the resort to the rich marine waters of the Strait of Georgia and beyond. Nearby French Creek marina provides chartered fishing trips for those looking to venture further out for a day battling chinook, coho, or halibut, while those preferring to stay closer to the shore can enjoy casting their lines in pursuit of rockfish and other local species.
