Our Tofino fishing charters are offered from early March until the end of October with our peak season being May thru September for Chinook (King) Salmon and July thru October for Coho (Silver) Salmon.
This season offers comfortable fishing in protected inlets for Feeder (Blackmouth) Chinook Salmon and early migratory King Salmon that follow our local Herring populations returning from the open seas on their annual spawning ritual. These Salmon are generally 6 – 20 lbs, averaging around 10 lbs with some much larger and the odd Halibut coming aboard our Tofino fishing boats.
By this time of year the Seas calm down enough that our charter fleet can comfortably and safely get offshore to our legendary baitfish rich banks to troll for migratory Chinook (King) Salmon from 15 – 50 lbs and powerful halibut. Our area receives wave after wave of Chinook Salmon heading for their natal rivers hundreds to a thousand miles away on our offshore banks thru the end of September with Coho (Silver) Salmon arriving in our area usually around the end of June and running thru the end of October.
If you’re going on a Tofino fishing charter you may as well go with the BEST! Our boats won both 1st and 3rd places in 1997 and 1998 as well as 1st place in 2002, 2009, 2011 & 2017 in Tofino’s annual Legion Fishing Derbies. We are also proud to take part in the Annual Hooked On Miracles Charity Fishing Derby to raise funds for the hospice at Children’s Hospital in Vancouver, BC, Canada. In the 2011 derby, one of our boats captured the winning chinook salmon.
We have some great salmon during this time as some of the largest Chinooks of the year are lurking in our offshore waters with big bruisers up in to the 50 lb range have been caught.
Also, there is good fishing in our inside waters for feisty Coho salmon up to 20 lbs right thru mid October.
We offer exciting and unique offshore trips for Albacore Tuna when weather conditions permit.
