The Stamp ,Cowichan and Gold are probably the only ones that anyone will offer up on a forum.You would be about midway between Stamp and Gold.Stamp would be your best bet at hooking up.The drive will be about 75-90 min
Maybe Mike can help you a bit more

I've only actually fish for steel in my north end rivers..except for the cowichan last xmas..saw a few caught there.
pretty much every river(stream) will have steel in it eventually..some are early ..some are late.
I word i kept hearing last season was SLOW. seemed like mid to south island were very slow.
the stamp i hear is hard to fish without a boat
I'd give my left nut to fish the gold at xmas..
Im sure there must be some likley spots around comox.
a van isle backroad mapbook will tell you alot more than i can.

goodluck and tightlines

FYI , unless you are a guide, there is a power restriction on the Stamp.
I don't recommend boating or drifting the river unless someone in the group has prior experience .There is a decent trail from the gun club up, and other known spots you can access on foot.The Falls pool being the most popular .Expect a little company.
If you know a bit about steelhead, your chances aren't bad.
Watch for the bait boundary at Girlguide falls
