Our excellent winter chinook fishery goes through to the end of March.
Coho fishing will get going at the beginning of June.
We are also anticipating a large pink salmon return starting mid July.
May 1st we will open for rockfish and lingcod, this requires a full day charter as we need to travel to the gulf islands to retain bottom fish.
Chinook fishing will be closed from April 1 to July 15 to protect early Fraser River Stocks. August and September are the peak months for returning Chinook

We look forward to taking you fishing in 2021!!! Please contact us if you have any questions.
