Seasons

Winter & Spring

STEELHEAD: There's nothing like hooking a sea bright Winter Steelhead. The rivers of Vancouver Island are flowing larger than average during this season, drawing in these fish from the ocean from late November through till April. There are highlights throughout the season in specific watersheds with the proper water conditions that will reward you with the greatest sports fish Vancouver Island has to offer. We like to use two handed rods and large flies to search out these fish, and often float several kilometres river a day through remote areas to find Bright waters with bright fish. We will then move north to the Skeena region during late April through May for the same fish that arrive in spring season. Similar waters as Vancouver Island with the same style fishing can produce some of the largest coastal Steelhead BC has to offer. In the mix of this Spring season there is also early spring salmon arriving which are willing to take the same flies. This can be a massive surprise while swinging for steelhead.

TROUT: On occasion while fly-fishing Vancouver Island you will encounter Sea-Run Cutthroat while searching for steelhead, these fish are feisty and quite aggressive to the fly! Our winter / spring steelhead & trout enter the rivers between Nov - May. We fish many rivers including the Gold, Salmon & Nimpkish. Spring time also brings excellent lake fishing for trout as an option when visiting.

Summer & Fall

STEELHEAD: Starting in late June our first Summer Steelhead arrive. These fish typically like to travel into the upper reaches and tributaries of our watersheds. The Vancouver Island fly-fishing locations are mostly pristine gin-clear waters with pools & runs one dreams about. This perfect fly-water is great for casting & dead-drifting large dry-flies into. When one of these chrome wild fish come to your fly hold on! This fly-fishery is without a doubt one of the best in the world!

Skeena River and Nas River steelhead arrive later, starting to show in the lower parts of the watersheds during late July. These fish are a great when found in the main stem in the mix of migrating salmon. Some of the largest steelhead we've ever encountered are on the lower watershed of the Skeena River during summer months. In the fall these fish start filling up the tributaries of these great rivers, and then we start guiding higher up these watersheds for the main part of the fall run of steelhead.

SALMON: Pink Salmon are the first to arrive in mid July. We start targeting these fish on our ocean beaches. Schools of them can be found cruising near the shoreline and are highly aggressive to a stripped fly! They are easy targets and great fighters averaging 4 pounds. They are also great fun in our rivers when they first arrive and are still chrome. Our Coho salmon (silvers) can be found from Aug - Nov and can be fished the same as the pinks in both the Ocean & river. They are 8 pounds on average, very acrobatic and a real challenge to land. On occassions we also target Chum and King salmon when suitable. These fish are more than a hand full when hooked.

TROUT: Dolly Varden, Sea-Run Cutthroat & Rainbows can all be found around Vancouver Island. We can specifically target these fish but also encounter them while fishing for Salmon & steelhead. Our most unique trout fishery is targeting Sea-Run Cutthroat on our ocean beaches.
