This week on the water

August produces great sportfishing opportunity on the west coast of Vancouver Island. 'Tyee', Chinook Salmon over 30 pounds are commonly hooked this time of year and challenge the most seasoned anglers with their superb fighting tactics. As August progresses into September we look forward to the return of west coast Chinook on route to some of the great enhanced streams of the south west island including Robertson Creek and the Nitnat River.

For the past couple weeks Tofino
has been one of the hottest sport-fisheries on the west coast of Canada. Quality Chinook and plenty of them coupled with a decent ratio of hatchery Coho has been making the area pop. Good reports have been coming in from the Ucluelet fleet indicating that the Hysen area has started to pick up however the Tofino fleet continues to focus on Raffle and areas to the west. With plenty of Lingcod, Rockfish and Halibut to round out the box we can definitely say that fishing is hot!

It's on in Tofino! Since the 'Red Sky' tracked down a large body of Chinook (King) Salmon a week ago at the Raffle tack we have experienced the best salmon fishing of the season. Plenty of quality Chinook have been coming in daily. Coupled with consistent halibut and lingcod fishing there have been some heavy fish totes tipping the scales at the Trilogy Fish Company, the dockside processor. Full day charters offer anglers the best opportunity to capitalize on all of the action. Coho have started showing up in decent numbers in the Sound. Now through mid September is a great time to get out on our inshore fly fish boat.
