COVID-19 PROTOCOLS ARE BEING FOLLOWED. As per the direction of the Provincial Public Health officer. Details are available on our FAQ page.


We are excited about upgrading our vessel to a 30 Foot Boston Whaler. It will be in operation on all charters.

Spring chinook fishing has begun and we are seeing excellent results so far. Chinook is currently a catch and release fishery only. Starting July 15 there will be opportunities for retention.

Coho fishing will be in full swing by mid June. We are also anticipating a large pink salmon return starting mid July. Both are any excellent fishery for families with kids looking for a great experience with lots of action.

August and September are the peak months for catching large Chinook Salmon in the 20-30 pound range.

We look forward to taking you fishing in 2021!!! Please contact us if you would like to more information and when would be the best time to go for your family or group.
