Port Hardy: Salmon Town

  

Overview

All work, and all play. Fish for Salmon where it’s a way of life. Port Hardy is a small, rustic fishing village near the northern tip of Vancouver Island. Untouched by the crowds, and largely untouched by civilization, Port Hardy is the perfect place to fish alongside British Columbians who do it for a living, every day.  All species of Salmon pass here on their way to hundreds of streams and rivers along the inside coast of B.C. and into Washington State.
