Nobody understands the needs of British Columbia’s West Coast sport fishing community like Island Fisherman Magazine. The Island’s only recreational fishing magazine, that covers the West Coast from the Haida Gwaii (Queen Charlotte Islands) to Victoria on Vancouver Island.
Island Fisherman Magazine provides “how-to” and “where-to-go” information that really counts, whether you prefer angling in freshwater for rainbows, cutthroats, brown trout, steelhead, or smallmouth bass, or in saltwater for Chinook, coho, pink, sockeye or chum salmon, halibut, lingcod, or various species of bottom fish. Island Fisherman Magazine will help you find the big ones, suggest the best times to plan your trips, and how to simply experience what the West Coast has to offer.
The driving force behind Island Fisherman Magazine’s proven successful results for our readers and the advertisers who support us are the monthly Area Reports that offer current, in-depth information about the freshwater and saltwater fishing opportunities for each area.
Our focus is on entertaining and educating avid anglers with fishing lodge and resort profiles, charter operations, new product information, tackle shop and outdoor store features, plus articles and columns on how-to and where-to-go written by some of British Columbia’s premier outdoor writers.
