This week on the water
As good as it gets when it comes to diversity? During this past week we were able to showcase the multitude of options that make Tofino one of the most interesting Sportfishing destinations in BC. Early in the week we headed out 60 miles Offshore to the blue water and hooked a nice batch of feisty Albacore Tuna while checking Fin whales and Elephant seals. A couple of days later we were up in the Helicopter with Atleo Air and managed to hook a couple summer Steelhead, some Cutthroat trout and a few nice Coho salmon. We saw plenty of Bears and got a rare look at a big bull Roosevelt Elk. Our staple this time of year is hitting the calm and scenic waters of the Sound near Tofino to reel in Coho salmon and pulling up Dungeness crabs in the traps. Pretty hard to beat right?

September is a great time to get out and enjoy a day fishing Coho Salmon in the calm waters of Clayoquot Sound. There are some real beauties out there right now in and around the shallow sandbars and remote islands. The time is right to get one of these acrobatic fish on the fly. See a whale and pull the crab trap on the way in. Interested? 250.266.0587

Join us this September and enjoy a relaxing day of Coho fishing in the scenic waters of Clayoquot Sound. Trolling for Coho (Silver) Salmon on a bucktail fly is arguably the most exciting sport fishery in the area. Lingcod, and halibut are still great offshore options. Fall is the best time of year to join us on a freshwater fly in. Amazing scenery and good fishing to boot.

The fog is in and so are the Chinook Salmon (Kings). Your best chance at a 'Tyee', a 30 pound plus Chinook, is almost certainly during the month of August.

Take advantage of the early summer season this year. Salmon begin running past Tofino in numbers during April, often pausing their migration to feed on the plentiful needle fish and herring on the banks of the
February - April 2017

Early Spring is a great time to get out on the water, get some fresh seafood for dinner, view the whales as they return to the north and maybe even hit the local hot springs for a soak. Winter 'Feeder' Chinook (Kings) mix with mature early run salmon presenting good options for the Tofino Angler.
September Outlook 2016

Pending regulation changes will allow us near shore access to West Coast Vancouver Island Chinook traveling towards Robertson Creek and the Nitinat River for the first time in close to a decade. DFO stock scientists are estimating a run of WCVI Chinook of around 250,000 returning this August and September. Local areas such as Wilf Rock and Wya Point will be open to allow recreational anglers access to these sizable Chinook (King) salmon.View all
