Saltwater Fishing in BC –
Products for Pacific Anglers
River Sportsman in Campbell River offers the largest selection of saltwater fishing gear on Vancouver Island. Saltwater fishing is our specialty– but it is our service that sets us apart. Our staff understands your passion for fishing because it’s our passion too.
We’re not kidding! Our team has fished every inlet and stretch of ocean, every river and stream on and around Vancouver Island. And second only to being there, they are eager to share their knowledge and experience with customers. What can we say, we like to talk fishing!
We have maps to show you where to go, and links to fishing regulations for salmon, halibut, lingcod, rock cod, snapper and sea-run cutthroat. We offer rods and reels for pacific anglers, hoochies, flashers, spoons, plugs, jigs, bait and all the supplies for successful saltwater fishing. Our store is a hub for sport fishing on North Vancouver Island, the West Coast and the Inside Passage. Stop by if you’re in Campbell River and talk fishing with us or contact us for any questions you might have about our online gear.
Get the Gear and Get the Saltwater Fish
The right equipment can make your trip more successful… And a whole lot more fun! River Sportsman has a full line of gear for catching saltwater fish, from high-end single action reels to inexpensive level-winds. Trolling, jigging, casting or mooching, we can outfit you with what you’ll need. If it’s prawns or crabs you’re after, we carry a full line of traps, line and buoys.
We Have a Huge Selection of Electronics
We can outfit your boat, too, with downriggers, sounders, fishfinders, mounts and GPS to help you bring home the trophies. A good GPS in your boat will take you right back on top of that great halibut hole five miles offshore.
