Fishing Information

The salmon and halibut fishing on Vancouver Island’s north tip rivals that of any fly-in location in British Columbia. Within a short run you’ll be fishing the protected waters of northern Vancouver Island’s eastern shores. Salmon migrating south use this area as a major feeding station and the geography of the area lend well to fishing in calm waters.

Port Hardy and the surrounding area has long been a mecca of halibut and bottom fishing.  The nutrient rich ocean supports a very healthy halibut fishery that can be accessed without any long runs or open ocean fishing. Expect an awesome salmon/halibut combo on these Port Hardy trips!
