Heading out to fish in the Gulf Islands

Fishing in the Gulf Islands is a very popular sport with visitors and locals. For many the ultimate goal is to catch one of the salmon species but ling cod, rock fish and others are available as well. Be sure to check the fishing regulations. Licenses are required and many species are protected during certain periods of the year. Additional size restrictions and other criteria may apply as well.

Crabbing and prawning is popular and many boaters partake in this activity while at anchor. Shellfish is often available but may be limited and often there are closures in effect due to Red Tide and pollution issues.

Regulations and additional information are available from Fisheries and Oceans Canada.
