The Accessible Fishing Platform is located on Fish Hatchery Road at the Big Qualicum River Fish Hatchery near Qualicum Bay on Vancouver Island. There is disabled parking and a paved walkway to the platform. The platform is 8 feet above the river and has a high safety rail that may make it difficult for some to fish from. During the peak fishing season in the fall, local fishermen have assisted committed wheelchair fishermen down a steep bank for better access to the river. Single barbless hooks only. Wheelchair accessible washrooms on site. Anyone fishing or angling in British Columbia must have a BC Fishing Licensce – for reduced fee license application click here https://sci-bc-database.ca/?p=1663.
