Fishing Vancouver Island, British Columbia, encompasses two different sorts of angling, both fresh and salt water. For now, let’s take a look at the salt water variety and come back to fresh water fishing at a later date.
The seas which surround Vancouver Island are literally teaming with six species of salmon, rockfish, halibut and loads more species of fish which anglers like to catch. There are also a great many unusual and unique species which can be found here and it is a popular island for both boaters and fishermen. Charters are available to take people out or you are able to launch your own boat from one of the many ramps.
A weekend of fishing in British Columbia quite simply can’t be beaten, however if you plan going to outlying areas you may need to stay longer. The CA$ is valued at less than the UD$ and prices are about the same so visitors enjoy a discount on most things. Gas is the only item that is more expensive.
You can fly and bottom fish from boat trips out of Victoria but it is best to avoid peak season times as prices are higher and a lot of people visit this area. Live on-board operators of charter boats will take you out for the day and show you where the best fishing can be found. One of the best places is Port Hardy; this port is the entrance to Queen Charlotte Islands and will see you bagging a catch worth boasting about.
During early and late season cheap packages can be found where visitors can get a couple of day’s fishing, accommodation and flights out of Vancouver for all inclusive prices. These packages are available across the entire price spectrum and fly lodges will include guides and up-scale accommodation, as well as extras.
