Long Description:
The Ogden Point Breakwater was completed in 1916 and extends 762 metres (2500 feet) out from the shoreline. Due to its structure, stepped ledges line both sides of the breakwater, creating nearly a mile of solid footing from which one can fish at any tide level.

Many species of fish are routinely caught here, with the most common being bottom fish such as lingcod, rockcod, greenling, sculpin, and flounder. Other species include perch, ratfish, and occasionally dogfish. If you use different gear, you can also catch several types of salmon, including chinook, coho, and pink.

The regulations, openings, and limits vary depending on the species. This Department of Fisheries and Oceans webpage lists these many regulations.

There are three places where you can access the lower level of the breakwater:
  • At the foot of the breakwater on the outside
  • A set of stairs on the outside at the 512-metre mark
  • A set of stairs on the outside just before the tip at the 735-metre mark
The outside of the breakwater is also a world-class location for scuba diving, so anglers need to be mindful of the divers.
