Salmon Fishing ON Vancouver ISLAND, BC

Walters Cove Resort welcomes you to Kyuquot Sound, your salmon fishing destination! Fly in, drive in, or bring your own boat! Our resort has everything you need to go fishing in some of the country’s most untapped waters. There’s nothing quite like salmon fishing off the idyllic west coast of Canada. Come for exciting, action packed getaway and feel free to bring the whole family. Our resort has something for everyone including use of paddle-boards and kayaks. When you come for a fishing trip, you get way more than just a once-in-a-lifetime salmon fishing experience. The natural splendour of the island makes the perfect playground for kids and gives them an opportunity to explore the island trails that slowly wind through the old-growth forests or visit the secret beach!

Located in the northwest quadrant of Vancouver Island, the lodge at Walters Cove Resort is just minutes away from one of the few accessible saltwater fishing spots in the West Coast. Here, you’ll find hundreds of runs of Chinook and Coho salmon that traverse the “Salmon Highway.” Of course, we fish for more than salmon at Walters Cove. We have great fishing for halibut, lingcod and other bottom fish. Sometimes, when the stars line up, we can even get a shot at albacore tuna!

Vancouver Salmon Fishing—When the Catch of the Day Becomes the Catch of a Lifetime

Salmon fishing on Vancouver Island starts on one of our pristine 23’ Grady White boats, which are fully equipped with 300 HP Suzuki 4 stroke motors and an exhaust-free kicker. All of our boats feature high-power downriggers, salmon rods, heavy-duty reels, and trustworthy electronics. We even provide you with raingear for those days when Mother Nature is in a mood.

One of our fully trained and certified guides will take you to the finest fishing areas in Kyuquot Sound, where you can expect large quantities of salmon. This area is well-known as their feeding ground, making it densely populated with salmon and halibut and a breath-taking sight to see.

Our guides will take you to all of the best spots for much more than just salmon. Don’t be surprised if you catch cod and halibut. Kyuquot Sound is jam-packed with fish, and we know just where to find them.
