Overview

What makes these islands that we fish so special is how their location interrupts the migration of salmon returning to spawn. These salmon are returning to virtually every river along the West Coast of North America. Consequently, this is the reason we enjoy such a long fishing season. From the first session of the season in May until the last session of the season in September, we enjoy ‘Prime Season’ fishing. No shoulder season here! King (Spring) salmon start to pass by the Islands as early as April and continue right into October. We have an abundance of Kings through the entire season.

All summer long the ocean is alive. Humpback Whales feeding on Herring and Krill; Orcas feeding on migrating Salmon; Seals and Sea Lions living in the Kelp beds off shore; Black Bears feeding along the shore lines; and of course—eagles everywhere!

Connections from Vancouver daily.
