VIDEO: Angler lands a 25-pound Chinook off Campbell River pier

Experience the thrill of the catch through this video of Chris Joynson catching a 25 lb. spring salmon off the Discovery Pier in Campbell River on July 27.

The pier is a popular gathering spot for Campbell River residents who stroll the deck overlooking Discovery Passage eating delicious ice cream or throw out a hook and try to catch the famous salmon that return to storied Campbell River itself.

The pier is no slouch when it comes to landing salmon. On July 24, a 38-pound Chinook was hauled in.
