This week on the water

Salmon fishing has been excellent this past week with Chinook and Coho in close proximity to Tofino. It's a great time to get out and do some salmon fishing no matter your experience level.

We still have some late August and September dates available to fish both salt and freshwater. Chinook salmon provided excellent action until the second week of September last year. Depending on the rains look for the same action this season. This is Coho season! good numbers of these acrobatic fish have already shown up in the waters of Clayoquot Sound. We look forward to fishing these exciting fish until the October rains draw the last ones into the rivers. For dates and info please contact us. info@tofinofishguides.com

Helicopter fishing
days are some of our favorites. Hop in the heli at the Tofino - Long beach airport and head for the mountains. The helicopter gives us the unique ability for plunge into the vast wilderness located only minutes from Tofino. Today we fished a number of stunning runs and pools on a snow fed river deep in an ancient old growth forest. Coastal Cutthroat trout feeding on salmon fry and insects provided fantastic action. Please contact Lochie if you would like further information. 250.266.0587
