The Wardo West Tofino salmon fishing  trips will put you into the heart of some of Vancouver Island’s best saltwater salmon fishing.  Salmon fishing in Tofino has grown increasingly more productive over the past ten years and now is considered one of the most consistent saltwater fishing areas in British Columbia. The area enjoys a long season of fishing, starting in mid May through to mid September, with both salmon and halibut fishing both very consistent through these months.
Just offshore from Tofino is the salmon super highway,  home to fish southbound to the Fraser and Columbia river systems and this brings millions of salmon into the waters off the west coast of Vancouver Island. The overall quality of bottom fishing in and around Tofino is also a major factor in the area’s popularity, the west coast of Vancouver Island has rich bottom fishing, among some of the best found in British Columbia and fishing for halibut, ling cod and rockfish is consistent all summer long.

“Best fishing experience of my life, we had a fantastic day on the water. We started getting bites and it never stopped. We had probably 25 bites and landed 15 beautiful salmon (releasing 2 coho after limiting) in an 8-hour charter, plus a few rockfish thrown in. We heard other boats struggling to find fish on the radio but that certainly was not an issue for us.”
