Your Vancouver Island fishing adventure can start just 30 minutes away from Victoria, in beautiful Sooke, British Columbia, one of BC’s saltwater fishing secret hotspots! You’ll fish with me and my experienced Vancouver Island fishing guide crew on the calm waters off the west coast of southern Vancouver Island. We offer you a unique and diverse fishing experience and can catch salmon, halibut, crab, and prawns, all in the same day.

Our waterfront lodge is the perfect place to get away from it all. Tranquil and peaceful, the lodge overlooks the glistening waters of southern Vancouver Island and has full amenities for out guests. Relax in the hottub, enjoy great dining and total comfort in our laid back lodge atmosphere. My passion is showcasing the west coast lifestyle we are fortunate to have here on the coast. Teaching our guests about fishing, cooking, conservation, local enhancement efforts, history and other activities to fulfill local tourists vacations is what makes our intimate lodge a truly great place to stay.

Vancouver Island Lodge offers year-round fishing opportunities on southern Vancouver Island with chinook salmon and halibut fishing our main focus. But we have all five species of Pacific salmon in our waters and we also love crab and prawn fishing. The southern west coast of Vancouver Island is a bountiful area, with opportunities at millions of salmon headed on their migration routes to the Fraser and Columbia rivers coming through out waters.
Our flexible fishing program allows you to pick how many days you’d like to come fishing on Vancouver Island. A full fleet of covered heated guide boats sits right at the lodge, you’ll enjoy a fresh breakfast a coffee and a stroll down the ramp and you’re fishing. Most of the salmon fishing at Vancouver Island Lodge is done close to the lodge, limiting long runs and maximizing fishing time!

“First class operation! Booked a trip with Ryan and his crew. Had a great day out in the water and Ryan took care of so much. Baiting and setting lines. My wife and I enjoyed ourselves thoroughly. They will filet and pack and ship. Great experience close to Victoria.”
