Campbell River and the Tyee
"For over a century, Campbell River has been known as the Salmon Capital of the World and with good reason. Every year, millions of migrating salmon travel through Discovery Passage on their way to spawn in their birth river. This is also where the deep-swimming resident Chinook of Georgia Strait gather to feed on herring and needlefish.
You can fish Chinook, also known as Springs or King salmon year-round, and many people return to Campbell River time and again to pursue this sport. The best time for fishing Tyee-a Chinook weighing over 30 pounds (14 kilograms)-is July through September. This is the fish that made Campbell River's fishing famous and catching one is a fisher's dream."
