Harris Creek flows into the San Juan River,
just south of the bridge over the Harris Creek Main logging road,
near the town of Port Renfrew on southern Vancouver Island.
The run of summer
steelhead in Harris Creek is low during June and July, with the
winter steelhead run in February and March. Runs of coho salmon
occur in the fall. Fishing is invariably good after a few days of
Access to Harris Creek is good along this road, as well as from
the Robertson and Hillcrest logging roads from the southern shore
of Cowichan Lake.
