Black Creek to Nile Creek: Shore Fishing

  

Overview

Perfect beaches, perfect fishing. This large stretch of island coast along the eastern side of Vancouver Island features beaches that go out up to a quarter mile at low tide, making it an excellent place to play with kids and go clamming and oyster picking. The weather is relatively mild here, and the area also features many runs of Pink and Coho Salmon that you can catch right from shore.
