Bluefin Fishing Adventures offers superb year-round fishing situated in a temperate rainforest on the southwest tip of Vancouver Island.
Sooke has been a year-round fishing destination for generations. Large runs of salmon migrate annually past the West Coast of Vancouver Island, feeding and bulking up before heading for their spawning grounds.
Sooke’s mild climate allows for year-round fishing. May through September you can fish for hard fighting Chinooks 5 to 50 pounds – delicious Sockeye 5 to 12 pounds, energetic Coho 5 to 24 pounds, scrappy Pinks 5 to 8 and hard fighting Chums 6 to 20 pounds July through October – yummy Winter Chinooks 5 to 20 pounds November into March.
Halibut can get up to and over 200 pounds here, but the range is usually 30 – 70 pounds. They’re hard pullers and fun to catch. Pulling one up from the deep is a thrill! (And they are delicious.) Excellent halibut fishing can be found only 20 – 30 minutes from Sooke.
Along the way, wildlife abounds. While cruising Vancouver Island’s rugged coastline to the fishing grounds, seals, whales, eagles and porpoises are often along for the ride.
There are also unique river fishing opportunities for Salmon and Steelhead in Vancouver Island’s pristine rivers. Access is often on logging roads that thread through the hills and the best fishing spots are tough to find. Pat can get you into these hard to reach places – on foot, or by Jet boat or Drift boat.
