September/October 2013

Late summer offers anglers an array of fishing options to choose from. Fish Coho on the fly, target Halibut, Lingcod and Rockfish in the offshore waters, drift the river for Trout and Coho or travel out to the BlueWater in search of Albacore Tuna. It's all part of the program this fall with Tofino Fish Guides!

Watch the new #yourtofino video we recently collaborated on with Tourism Tofino.

Coho Salmon

Coho on the fly or on gear, for that matter, provide anglers with a scrappy acrobatic fight and are fantastic table fare. This time of year Coho are abundant in the beautiful waters of Clayoqout Sound. Spectacular scenery and a multitude of sea life is sure to thrill whether your a seasoned angler or out fishing for the first time.

Albacore Tuna - the BlueWater program


    Hooked up aboard the 'Red Sky'


Fishing Albacore Tuna is an emerging fishery in British Columbia. Albacore run 15-35 pounds off the coast of BC and can often be caught in large numbers. Spend the day trolling fast in the warm, clear BlueWater in the canyons beyond the continental shelf. We have the boat for it, the 'Red Sky' is equip with outriggers and dive boards to optimize the spread of our Tuna gear. Please call Lochie for further details. 1.877.537.6444


Bottom fish - Halibut, Lingcod, Rockfish


Hooking up these bottom dwellers is a blast, going home with a load of fresh halibut isn't so bad either! Halibut can be fished on a half day charter or incorporated into a full day. In order to access the best Lingcod and Rockfish zones a full day charter is necessary. Blending bottom fishing with a touch of Coho action is a great way to spend a September day!



Remote river fishing  

The river is in prime condition during September and is a fantastic place to spend a day drifting in search of Cutthroat Trout and Coho Salmon. Float down the river in one of our brand new NRS inflatable river kayaks. These safe, stable kayaks are getting rave reviews.  Our river raft is another great way to drift the river. Join Lochie MacKenzie a long time fly fishing instructor and a former guide at the prestigious Silver Hilton Steelhead Lodge to learn to cast, or polish up your stroke. Lochie specializes in Spey and overhead techniques. A remote river drift is a great place to take your fly-fishing skills to the next level and hook a few nice trout while your at it! Have a look at our freshwater options. Enjoy a day on our raft or experience the freedom of your own personal watercraft.


Red Sky


After three years aboard the "Rye Not" we have upgraded out primary vessel in order to remain on the leading edge of sport fishing vessels available on the west coast of Vancouver Island. The "Red Sky", a Pursuit 255 Offshore, the replacement for the discontinued 2570 line, offers a significant increased interior space, and is equip with the best small vessel electronics available in 2013. The first thing returning guests will notice is the increase in size and comfort of the seats in this vessel. A larger displacement, twin 150HP Yamaha four strokes, a Lowrance electronics package complete with a 12 inch touch screen, structure scan side scanning sonar, and broadband Radar are a few of the other highlights of the "Red Sky". We are sure you will be pleased with this vessel. The "Rye Not" remains in the Tofino fleet and will be available as a second boat through Tofino Fish Guides. More pictures and information.

Please feel free to give us a call or shoot us an email if you have further questions or would like to check availability.
