Vancouver Island Halibut & Salmon Fishing 

Experience world-class fishing charters when you visit us at Eagle Nook Resort in Barkley Sound, BC. Lucky Sportfishing provides fully guided fly in or drive in salmon and halibut fishing packages on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada. This area lays claim to some of the best saltwater fishing grounds in the world. Barkley Sound has numerous runs of Chinook (King), Coho (Silver), and Sockeye salmon that pass through from May to September. Pacific Halibut, Lingcod and Rockfish are plentiful all season making for fantastic inshore and offshore fishing.

Salmon Season in BC

In British Columbia, anglers enjoy an abundance of both freshwater and saltwater salmon year-round, with the most fish being caught from May to November. The salmon fishing season in BC correlates with the migration schedule of salmon, known as the salmon run. The various pacific salmon all have slightly different seasonal salmon runs, as noted above.

Again, the top prize is the chinook salmon, noted above as being the tastiest. Due to their popularity and population numbers that ebb and flow, chinook can be tough to come by, but not if you’re with an experienced fishing guide who can take you to the best spots.

Salmon Fishing Supplies  

With the use of our high-end reels, fishing rods and Scotty downriggers, you’ll be reeling in trophy-sized halibut and salmon in no time.   All of our fishing charters are aboard our 26-28 foot Grady White boats and are equipped with the latest and greatest fishing lures, bait and equipment. They also feature twin powered engines and 4 stroke trolling motors, stereos, below deck enclosed washrooms and modern up-to-date radar and electronics. Each of our fishing charters are unique and private and we do not mix any of our groups together.  With no more than 3 guests per boat (or a family of 4), we can cater to your needs and go to locations based on the fish you are after. We’ll make sure that you and your group leave with your limits of fish.

Expert Fishing Guides  

Not an expert fisherman?  Not to worry – that’s what our expert guides are for. They can walk you through it and ensure you’re reeling in those picture worthy fish in no time. Whether you’re going after Halibut, Salmon, Lingcod or one of the multiple species of Rockfish, our all-inclusive fishing packages will take care of all your needs.  Our friendly, experienced guides will take you to the hottest fishing spots and share their extensive knowledge to make this a legendary fishing experience. All our guides and boats are Transport Canada approved.

Bringing Your Salmon Home with You  

Another advantage of chartering with Eagle Nook Resort for your corporate retreat is that we include in our packages the portioning, filleting, and vacuum packing of your freshly caught salmon. We also provide you with an airline-approved cooler to help keep your fish stay fresh and frozen on your ride home.

If you’re travelling outside of Canada, you can transport your salmon to the United States without any special paperwork required. If you are traveling somewhere outside of the US and Canada, check your destination country’s regulations to see if vacuum-packed frozen fish is allowable.

Chinook Salmon Fishing Trips for a Great Catch  

The truth is a lot of what you need to understand regarding salmon fishing has to do with the season and time of year. If you are looking for a Chinook Salmon fishing trip with great catch, you should know and plan for the following:

In June, many Chinook salmon are in the 15  to 35-pound range. Because these Chinook are preparing for their spawning runs, they avidly attack herring and your fishing lures.

In July, local salmon begin to show in ever-increasing numbers in the Sound.

In August, salmon fishing explodes as Coho salmon in great numbers join the mix.

Chinook Salmon are the largest and the most prized of the pacific salmon. Many seafood lovers agree they taste the best, making them the most highly sought after and most heavily regulated of the pacific salmon. Peak run is from June to September. 

Your Fishing Canada Guide for Catching Chinook Salmon  

A great time to pursue salmon is on a slightly overcast day when the water isn’t too clear. The sunnier it is, the deeper and less active the salmon will be.

Catching salmon can be done a number of different ways. For offshore salmon fishing, trolling with a downrigger or planer is a favoured technique and will help you reach depths of 100+ feet – perfect for chinook who are deep water fish. Drift fishing and mooching with in-tact live bait are also popular methods of salmon fishing if you are looking for a slower presentation of the bait.

Live bait like anchovies, herrings, sardines, or artificial lures are also essential. You can also experiment with big spoons, jigs, hootchies, spin ‘n’ glows, and flashers – any variety of glow, holographic, silver, or gold flasher will do. Scents can be helpful in masking human odours on artificial lures but are not entirely necessary.

When trolling off a boat, ensure you’re combining your bait with a razor-sharp hook (barbless hook only!) to effectively pierce the salmon’s thick jaw. DFO regulations make it illegal to use barbed hooks, use multiple hooks on one line, or to intentionally foul hook (snag a fish anywhere but its mouth) salmon in BC.

At Eagle Nook Resort, we provide you with the best high-end rods, reels, tackle and bait for catching saltwater salmon on the West Coast of BC.

Are You Ready for the Salmon Fishing Season in BC? 

Let’s start with a quick overview of the different types of salmon found in BC waters. There are five types of pacific salmon that are resident to the region, including Chinook, Chum, Coho, Sockeye, and Pink.

Chinook Salmon are the largest and the most prized of the pacific salmon. Many seafood lovers agree they taste the best, making them the most highly sought after and most heavily regulated of the pacific salmon. Peak run is from June to August. Chum Salmon are the second largest of the pacific salmon. They are highly abundant but do not taste as good as chinook so are a little less desirable. Peak run is from October and November. Coho Salmon are a bit more aggressive than the other pacific salmon, making them a bit of a satisfying challenge to catch for some anglers. Peak run is from August to September. Sockeye Salmon are medium-sized salmon that also taste great, especially in sushi. Peak run is from July to September.

Pink salmon are the smallest of the pacific salmon and the easiest to catch, making them a target for beginner anglers. However, they don’t taste that good, so they aren’t worth keeping. Peak run is from August and September.

If you’re new to fishing, review a pacific salmon identification guide before heading out on your next trip. Being able to accurately identify the species of fish you catch is essential to staying within your daily catch limits.

A Guide to Salmon Fishing Regulations in BC in 2020 

When you book a Canadian Salmon Fishing adventure at Eagle Nook Resort you receive an all-inclusive experience. Our professional guides will look after all licensing and regulatory elements of your trip, all you have to do is book your trip today! 

In Canada, the federal Department of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO) regulates the amount of salmon people are allowed to keep (retain) and adjusts these limits as required, based on current and anticipated salmon populations.

Salmon fishing regulations on and around Vancouver Island, DFO regulations are as follows (subject to change):

West Coast Fishing Size Limits 

  • All retained Chinook must measure  45 cm or more from tip of nose to tail fork.
  • All retained Coho must measure 30  cm or more.
  • All retained Sockeye must measure 30 cm or more

Daily & Possession Limits for Salmon in BC 

  • At any given time, the total possession limit of salmon per licensed angler onboard is eight, of which no more than four can be Chinook/King salmon.
  • Chinook Salmon: Daily limit of 2, possession limit of 4
  • Coho Salmon: Daily limit of 2 or 4 (Seasonal), possession limit of 8 (without any Chinook)
  • Chum Salmon: Daily limit of 4, possession limit of 8 (without any Chinook)
  • Pink Salmon: Daily limit of 4, possession limit of 8 (without any Chinook)
  • Sockeye Salmon: Daily limit of 4, possession limit of 8 (without any Chinook)

Annual BC Salmon Limits  

The total annual limit for chinook salmon is 10. This number is down from 30 – a decision made by the DFO in spring 2019 to support the long-term viability of the salmon. You must immediately record in ink on your license all chinook you keep.

Bringing Your Salmon Home with You 

Another advantage of chartering with Eagle Nook Resort is that we include in our packages the portioning, filleting, and vacuum packing of your freshly caught salmon. We also provide you with an airline-approved cooler to help keep your fish stay fresh and frozen on your ride home.
