Often called Springs or King Salmon these powerful fighters are the target species of choice for most of the season. Chinook can be caught year round in the Tofino area, they are great fighters and fantastic table fare. Abundance varies daily and weekly as fish runs move down the coast often feeding for extended periods in the waters near Tofino. Typically peak numbers are in the Tofino area sometime between June and August. Chinook are the largest of the five Pacific Salmon species.
These tasty bottom fish can be caught in the offshore waters throughout the fishing season. After spending the winter in deep ocean waters Halibut move up onto the continental shelf to spend the spring and summer feeding. Late spring and early summer can provide some of the best halibut fishing opportunity, however good fishing can be had through out the season.
Coho provide us with some fantastic surface activity and are a real thrill when hooked on a fly rod or light tackle. Often beginning to show up in late June, Coho fishing heats up as the summer progresses. Coho or Silvers are renown for spectacular acrobatic behaviour once hooked. Sound good?
