Northern Gulf Islands: Scenic Selections

  

Overview

Lots to choose from. With more than 200 islands off the coast of mainland BC, there are thousands of great spots to explore and drop a line. The southern end of Denman and Hornby Islands, two of the larger ones, are particularly good for Salmon and Ling Cod depending on season and spots near Flora Island and Lambert Channel are excellent spots to drop a prawn trap.
