Eagle Nook Resort is committed to providing our guests with a world-class fishing experience in Barkley Sound, BC. A big part of a legendary fishing experience is having the right, knowledgeable, friendly, and experienced guides.
Our expert fishing guides have years of knowledge and experience in these waters. We can take you out in the calmer waters of Barkley Sound to catch plenty of fish, or you can enjoy a sportier adventure by fishing in the Pacific. Our fishing guides use technology and experience to take you to the best fishing spots in the BC area. For example, if you tell us, you are looking for the best places for coho and chinook fishing, we will take you straight there! We help you go after the fish you want.
With years of experience, our guides make sure you’re safe, whether you’re fly fishing for trout offshore or fishing off the deck of one of our 26- or 28-feet boats. At the end of your day, we pack up your freshly caught salmon in vacuum packing to take in an airline-approved cooler to keep your fish fresh.
Meet Eagle Nook Fishing Guide, Jeff
Q: When did you start fishing? Do you have a favourite fishing memory?
A: I started fishing when I was very young, probably around 3 years old and I have loved it ever since. Some of my favourite fishing memories are from fishing derby events. I love seeing everyone on the water enjoying fishing in the same way I do!
Q: What is you favourite thing about being a guide in Barkley Sound?
A: My favourite part of being a guide in Barkley Sound is seeing the enjoyment of our guests as they experience this place for the first time. I am so grateful to be able to enjoy this area every day. I love sharing the beauty of this place with people for the first time.
Q: What is the most important skill for a salmon fishing guide to have?
A: I think the most important skill for a salmon fishing guide goes beyond just having a knowledge of the area, the fish, and of course safety. It is actually equally important to be able to entertain and provide a legendary experience to our guests for 8-10 hours a day.
Q: What do you believe sets Eagle Nook resort apart from other charter fishing companies?
A: The most important thing for all of us at Eagle Nook is that we provide a deeply personal experience for our guests. We really strive to create a personalized experience for everyone who visits. This is not the kind of place that just ushers people in and out as fast as possible. We enjoy getting to know our guests and take pride in providing a world-class, customized, and personal fishing experience.
Q: What is one thing everyone who goes fishing should know?
A: That’s easy, “it’s not catching it’s fishing”. Not every single day is going to be a banner day. You have to embrace the process or the journey and just enjoy being out on the water in a beautiful place.
Q: Final question, what is the best way to enjoy fish or halibut?
A: Keep it simple. Baked, with seasoning salt, lemon juice, and olive oil.
