This is the Adam River on Vancouver Island and not the famous Adams River of the interior with its great sockeye salmon run. Although this river does have some great fishing. You can fish for steelhead, salmon, resident rainbow trout, cutthroat trout, and some brown trout that can get to a good size.
One of my favorite spots to fish is where the Adam and Eve river joins up, there are some nice pools here to try your luck in. But you know, it’s also just a great place to come and see nature in its finest, and the Adam River is set in some fine country.
The river is a catch and release-only fishery above the Eve River confluence and there may be some gear restrictions, so please check your fishing synopsis. Hiking along the Adam river will put you into some pretty nice country, quite rugged, thick brush but the pools you will find to put a line in and the fish that you will find here will more than make this a memorable hike. You could get lucky and hook into a big brown trout or perhaps a big steelhead trout. Just remember that you must release all fish back into the river.
This is a nice river where you can always see wildlife and there are many birds who nest in the area. Every time I have been here, I have seen black bears, blacktail deer, herds of elk, cougars, smaller animals like otters, pine martins and raccoons are also quite numerous, and the birdlife here would satisfy any birder who visits. So if you are heading to this river, bring your camera and expect to be amazed.
