There are lakes and some creeks there. You'll have to explore.

salmon fishing either from shore or by means of a small boat may also be possible if you choose locations carefully. Do a search on this site for Quadra island shore fishing

Not sure what your raft is like but I have caught salmon and all manners of other fish off Rebecca Spit in my kayak. I found the key was fishing first or last light when the bait fish would be shallow.

I have fished briefly at the Village Bay lakes as well. Caught a few trout but nothing of any size, was a nice paddle around though.

And here’s your trip report! 😀 http://www.fishingwithrod.com/yabbse/index.php?topic=21147.0

I remembered the thread and went looking for it, not knowing that you were the OP!
