River Sportsman in Campbell River is BC's Premiere Outdoor Store. We specialize in fishing—saltwater fishing, freshwater rivers and lakes, fly fishing and tidal casting. There are unlimited opportunities for the angler around Campbell River and it is River Sportsman's mission to provide the dedicated fisher with the clothing and equipment needed to take full advantage of the North Island experience. But our home here in Campbell River is about more than fishing alone. This unsurpassed coastal setting provides innumerable recreational opportunities for the outdoorsman, and at River Sportsman we want to help you enjoy whichever you choose.

Besides rods and reels, bait, lures, flies, fly-tying equipment and more tackle than you can shake your net at, we offer supplies to help you get to where the fish are. And stay there, comfortably. Clothing, tents, backpacks, waders and boots, maps and charts, and the latest in electronic gear will help you find the fish as well as your way back home. The North Island also abounds with big game and we carry a full line of hunting equipment and supplies. River Sportsman staff is comprised of dedicated anglers as well as hunters and they love to talk about what they do. They are anxious to share their enthusiasm with customers and friends - that is why we have become the hub for local information. Fishing reports, conditions, regulations, the best bait, lure or fly—come on in and we'll talk about what's going on around the island on the land, sea, lake or river.

Whether you live on North Vancouver Island or have come to experience one of the premier wilderness destinations in the world, we are here to help you make the most of it. Come in and say hello. We are always ready to meet new sportsmen, share information and listen to what you want to do. It's how we do it and why we've been here for over 40 years.

Thanks for visiting.
