The beauty of the ancient forests and mighty mountains of Vancouver Island draw many visitors to explore the wild west coast. Myself as a hiker and mountain biker seek out the endless trails and alpine vistas that the island has to offer. Even with this passion for the land I am still well aware what adventure and challenge the water has to offer. Locally it is rare to meet anyone who hasn’t heard that Port Alberni is the self described Salmon Capital of Vancouver Island.
Port Alberni sits tucked away at the end of a deep ocean inlet beyond the giant fir tree of Cathedral Grove at the foot of Mount Arrowsmith. It is from this inlet that centuries of fishing heritage culminate in the Alberni Valley. The local Nuu-chah-nulth First Nation first fished the local waters knowing its importance and ability to provide Salmon and sustain a way of life.
