Campbell River & Gold River Steelhead Fishing


Gold River Steelhead Fishing


Steelhead are one of the most sought after sport fish in the world, and at Coastal Wilderness Adventures, we plan to show you why Vancouver Island Steelhead Fishing is something you’ll never forget. There are two different runs of Steelhead in the Vancouver Island area. One being a summer-run of fish from July to October, and the other being a winter-run of fish from December to April. During the winter months (Dec.-Apr.) we are focusing virtually all our guide efforts on winter-run steelhead. Most of our Steelhead trips are on the world-famous Gold River here on Vancouver Island. The Gold River hosts one of the most amazing 100% wild Winter Steelhead runs in all of North America

Winter-run Steelhead range in size from 5 pounds to 25 pounds. British Columbia Winter Steelhead are one of the hardest fighting freshwater fish that reside in Canadian waters: Vancouver Island Winter Steelhead will bring an angler to their knees! You are sure to have an experience like no other when you embark on your Pacific Northwest Winter Steelhead adventure!

Summer-run Steelhead range in size from 3 pounds to 15 pounds, and have a very explosive nature. British Columbia Summer Run Steelhead are readily caught on the fly, as warmer waters of the summer months, produce more aggressive fish. Fly-fishing is our prefered method to catch these Pacific Northwest summer run steelhead.
