This week on the water

Salmon fishing has picked up nicely during the past week with fish  in the 10 -20 pound range coming to the boat and some even larger reported. The Long Beach tack just south of Tofino has been fishing well due to an abundance of Needlefish and Herring schooling in the area. Have a look at our instagram feed for photos. @tofinofishguides  It is also a great time to get into the wilderness on one of our fly in remote trips and search for Cutthroat trout in a stream that few get the opportunity to visit.

March 25th
Calm seas and sunshine graced the offshore waters over the past few days setting us up for some great bottom fishing. Lingcod, halibut and rockfish were the order of the day taking jigs and herring. The recent lull in salmon fishing looks to be coming to an end with some positive results yesterday. Chinook (Kings) in the 15lb range came on anchovies fishing near the bottom.  The Trilogy Fish Dock hosted the 3rd annual 'Boat to Tailgate' party, a Tofino salmon enhancement fundraiser on May 7th. This Feast Tofino event gets better each time around.

The 'Westerly' wind is back
indicating that summer is near in the North Pacific. While the wind limited our offshore travel somewhat this past week we had some good success halibut fishing with fish in the 15 - 35 pound range taking power grubs and bait. When the wind kept us in the protected waters of the Sound we spent time fishing for salmon, checking the traps for prawns and crab while enjoying the sunshine and taking in the spectacular west coast scenery. Have a look at our Instagram feed at the bottom of the page for a photo of our latest Dungeness Crab haul. @tofinofishguides
