 OUR STYLE OF FISHING

INSHORE FISHING ON LIGHT TACKLE

You can go fishing for salmon in Vancouver 365 days a year! That’s right we have year-round saltwater fishing here with the best dates being February to September. Local waters welcome all five species of Pacific salmon, including chinook, coho, chum, pink and sockeye! There is also some limited bottom fishing locally as well.

We don’t fish heavy tackle for salmon, instead you’ll be using light rods, maximizing fun when fishing! Single action fishing reels and longer rods, with light lines, offer a unique way to catch salmon. The bites we get are lots of fun, peeling line off of reels! A variety of tackle is is used, including bait and lures. Fishing is done with downriggers, trolling small areas of coastline, catching salmon as they swim by.

VANCOUVER FISHING BOAT

VANCOUVER’S FASTEST FLEET

GRADY WHITE FISHING BOATS

Covered cabins with plenty of seating will make sure all anglers are comfortable while on the water. For larger groups of 5+ people there are larger Grady White Marlin sport fishing boats. These Vancouver salmon charters don’t just hook you up with the best salmon guides but also with first-class experiences and these boats make up the top fleet in Vancouver. All boats have large deck space and bathrooms onboard.

All charters are private, no shared party boats, just your group with your experienced guide. For larger groups, that can’t be accommodated on one boat, we offer multiple boats. This is a great option for corporate or stag groups and maximizes fishing time for everyone. More rods in the water is always good.
