Vancouver fishing charters: Right On The Salmon Highway
Of all the places on earth, British Columbia is perhaps some of the most rugged pristine country left, with sightings of eagles, bears, whales, and of course plenty of fish are common. The naturally abundant fishing grounds in and around Vancouver and the Fraser Valley are some of the most productive salmon fishing grounds in the Pacific Northwest. The Gulf Islands and Vancouver Island provide hunting grounds and hiding places for the migrating salmon each year while they are travelling the north/south parallel en route to their spawning grounds. In fact, Conde Nast Traveller magazine has awarded Vancouver Island “Top North American Island” seven years running. Vancouver Island fishing charters are some of the most productive in BC, and the busiest time of year is summer to late fall while salmon in there 3rd-5th year are migrating back to their home rivers to spawn.
Freshwater Fishing And Other Activities
There are a number of freshwater rivers which flow into the ocean around Vancouver, among them the Fraser, Capilano, and even the local Squamish and Mamquam River systems. Vancouver fishing charters find that around these river systems are often the most productive places to fish, especially during the critical migration period when the fish will bite on nearly anything, and there are literally millions of fish in the waters around Vancouver. Nor are you limited to fishing for something fun to do. One of the great things about our Vancouver fishing charters they are close to downtown, so if some family members want to try other activities, they can choose things like kayaking, hiking, or skiing in the beautiful British Columbia wilderness.
What Kind Of Fish Do Vancouver fishing charters Catch?
By and large, Vancouver BC fishing charters all target the same five species of Pacific salmon: pink, chum, Coho, sockeye, and Chinook. The Chinook, or King, salmon are the real prize here, with an average weight of around 15-18 pounds and a few proven catches in excess of 40 pounds. Sockeye salmon, also known as red salmon, are generally considered the tastiest (they’re the kind that are usually canned for commercial fisheries) and even one of the smallest of salmon are likely to be 5 to 6 pounds each. No matter the time of year, Vancouver fishing charters are able to find the salmon and ensure that your fishing charter is a memorable one.
What Do You Provide On Your Fishing Charters?
The answer is: we provide everything except lunch (and we’d be happy to provide that too, just let us know ahead of time!). Our expert fishing guides drop crab traps down on every Vancouver salmon fishing charter, so any guests with a craving for some fresh crab can eat their fill. Other than that, we will be pleased to provide you with all of the top quality gear you need to catch salmon, sturgeon, trout, or steelhead. We feature name brand gear like Islander Mooching Reels, Penn International Level Wind reels, Sage Rods, and Fenwick Rods on all of our Vancouver fishing charters, and our boats are Custom Weld jet boats that perfectly suit the fishing in British Columbia.
How Do I Get There?
One great thing about Vancouver Island fishing charters is that they’re just a few hours plane ride away from major cities like Seattle and Portland. You can even drive up in less than a day to get to our untouched wilderness, and once in the Vancouver area fishing is as close as the nearest body of water. If you choose to drive rather than fly, you’ll enjoy the magnificent scenery as you traverse mountains covered in fir and pine trees that have been around since long before the American Revolution. Vancouver fishing charters all leave from destinations within a few minutes drive from the city itself, so there’s no need to worry about how long it will take to get to the boat.
Can I Keep What I Catch?
What fun would a salmon fishing charter be if you couldn’t throw a few on the barbecue when you get back to your place of stay? Not much. That’s why our highly experienced fishing guides make it their business to know all there is to know about local fishing regulations and restrictions. Although there are restrictions on certain types of fish as catch-and-release only (sturgeon, for example) most fishing charters Vancouver has to offer will send you home with plenty of salmon.
