The halibut fishing has been excellent this past week in Tofino with a number of fish in the 30 - 60 pound range hitting the deck of the Red Sky. June is a great month to hit the water in search of halis, Lingcod and rockfish. We still have some open dates if you would like to give it a shot.

Chinook Salmon Fishing Open in Tofino. Chinook Salmon fishing will remain open this spring and summer in the near shore coastal waters of Clayoquot Sound Tofino. Normal regulation (2 per day, 4 in possession) will be in place in all waters after July 14th (including all offshore, normal August regulations are expected). From April to July 14th waters inside Clayoquot Sound and near offshore will be 2/4 Chinook respectively. This represents a good fishery for Tofino on an annual basis as herring, squid and needle fish are present in abundance. The science is sound that Fraser River Chinook do not travel near shore on the West Coast of Vancouver Island. The DFO model showed zero impact to Fraser Chinook in our near shore waters and zero impact in Offshore waters after July 15th.

Salmon, Prawns, Crab and Steelhead, there is no need to wait for summer to get our and enjoy a day on the water. Catch a fresh seafood dinner, view the whales as they return to the north and maybe even hit the local hot springs for a soak.
September - October 2017
Aug 31, 2017
September is arguably the best weather month of the year in the Tofino. The summer fog and westerly winds dissipate while the North Pacific winter low pressure system has yet to grip the region.

The fog is in and so are the Chinook Salmon (Kings). Your best chance at a 'Tyee', a 30 pound plus Chinook, is almost certainly during the month of August.View all
