Often called Springs or King Salmon these powerful fighters are the target species of choice for most of the season. Chinook can be caught year round in the Tofino area, they are great fighters and fantastic table fare.
Excellent crab fishing can be had in the immediate area. Fun for the whole family, or an added extra at the end of the day, pulling the traps is always entertaining.
A west coast delicacy! Winter and spring are the best times to pull the prawn gear. A fantastic way to get out on the water even when the weather is not at its best. Travel the fjords of Clayoquot Sound and reap the bounty of the deeps! Calm waters and stunning views make prawning a great way to get your family on the water.
These tasty bottom fish can be caught in the offshore waters throughout the fishing season. After spending the winter in deep ocean waters Halibut move up onto the continental shelf to spend the spring and summer feeding. Late spring and early summer can provide some of the best halibut fishing opportunity, however good fishing can be had through out the season
