The Vancouver Island Fishing Mapbook focuses on the best lakes and streams around the island. Whether you are looking for an urban getaway or a hidden mountain lake, there is always an active fishery. This is particularly true with the many rivers and streams that cascade their way down the mountains and out into the ocean. At any give time anglers can find bass, char, salmon, steelhead and trout, to name just a few. Some of these fish have been known to reach legendary sizes, while others will fill the pan perfectly on that backcountry camping trip. Some are easy to catch, while others are as wily as they are cunning. This is what makes Island fishing such a great challenge.

The Vancouver Island Fishing Mapbook is a result of a lot of research and the help of many knowledgeable anglers. Not only do you benefit from the Backroad Mapbook team, they have also consulted with the Freshwater Fisheries Society of BC, local writers and Island retailers to help refine the content. In addition to benefiting from many helpful eyes reviewing the content, readers can be assured the list covers most of the hot spots around the Island.
