Sport Fishermen

Fishermen! You are in for a treat on the North Coast. The cool nutrient rich waters of the Pacific Ocean are home to five species of salmon, lots of halibut, rock fish and as much crab and prawns as you can eat. Fish is here year round with the Blue Knuckle Spring Salmon Derby held on Boxing Day!

The Cassiar Cannery is a great base for your North Coast fishing adventure. Clean and comfortable Guest Houses provide you with ample room to dry your gear and wash your clothes! We have a large deep freeze for your fish and lots of room for your truck and trailer.

We are located 10 minutes from the Porpoise Harbour Marina in Port Edward. This is by far the best marina, and the best kept secret, on the North Coast. Safe and sheltered, close to the fishing grounds, double boat launch with lots of parking and drive down docks make unloading and loading easy. About half our guests keep their boats in the water for the duration of their visit and the other half haul them out daily.

Fishing licenses, bait and ice are available at the small General Store in Port Edward.

If you are not bringing your own boat, there are some fabulous guides available for day charters out of Port Edward and Prince Rupert. If you don’t already have a favourite, let us know and we can send you a list of recommended guides. There are two processing stores in Prince Rupert that can process your fish to suit and even package to send home internationally.

Need help with your boat or storage over the summer or winter? Our main business is Poseidon Marine, featuring a wide range of boat services. We also provide year round boat storage if you would prefer to not haul your boat back and forth. Sorry our docks go dry and we have a large current so all our guests use the marina in Port Edward.
