Pacific Sport Fishing Charters is ready and geared up for what has just recently been forecasted as the Chinook run of the Decade for the West Coast of Vancouver Island.  Department of Fisheries and Oceans just recently announed this 2016 season we will see a 10 year high with over 250,000 returning Chinook from our local rivers.

This also includes from our neighbours to the South – Washington State Fish and Game have also recently announced…An epic return of upto a million early season feisty Chinook all heading for the Columbia River. These fish pass right by our front door at Port Renfrew in June, July… and if you are looking for solid action and some of the best tasting fish from our waters, then head to Port Renfrew, you won’t be disappointed.

This means fishing at Port Renfrew and off shore waters around our famous Swiftsure Bank, is going to excellent this year. With a forecasted return of 4 year old Chinook from our local West Coast Rivers, June, July and August is prime time to intercept those migrating fish. If you are looking for a guaranteed West Coast fishing adventure and the chance at hooking your first 30lb Tyee Chinook, and wrestling our famous Pacific Halibut off the bottom, this is the year to be at Port Renfrew on Vancouver Island.

Port Renfrew is very accessible with a short 2 hour drive from either Victoria or Nanaimo on Vancouver Island.

I have been fortunate to have guided many returning clients over the years that have fished all over Vancouver Island, Haida Gwaii (Queen Charlotte Islands) and the Central Coast of British Columbia. The clients return year after year because the fishing for both salmon and halibut at Port Renfrew is excellent, and accessibility to Port Renfrew is easy and not over crowded.

For Spring Salmon and Halibut Specials, please contact Pacific Sport Fishing Charters…I will be happy to discuss a trip of a life time and an adventure you won’t forget.

Groups, couples. families, corporate, people new to fishing are all welcome!
