Sooke Salmon Fishing
Sooke has been a year-round fishing destination for generations. Large runs of salmon migrate annually past the West Coast of Vancouver Island, feeding and bulking up before heading for their spawning grounds.
Sooke’s mild climate allows for year-round fishing. May through September you can fish for hard fighting Chinooks 5 to 50 pounds – delicious Sockeye 5 to 12 pounds, energetic Coho 5 to 24 pounds, scrappy Pinks 5 to 8 and hard fighting Chums 6 to 20 pounds July through October – yummy Winter Chinooks 5 to 20 pounds November into March.
Halibut Fishing Charters:
Fishing Spring, Summer, Fall or Winter we will give you an experience!
Halibut can get up to and over 200 pounds here, but the range is usually 30 – 70 pounds. They’re hard pullers and fun to catch. Pulling one up from the deep is a thrill! (And they're delicious.) Excellent halibut fishing can be found 20 – 30 minutes from Sooke.
Along the way, wildlife abounds. While cruising Vancouver Island’s rugged coastline to the fishing grounds, seals, whales, eagles and porpoises are often along for the ride.
Salmon and Steelhead River Fishing:
There are also unique river fishing opportunities for Salmon and Steelhead in Vancouver Island’s pristine rivers. Access is often on logging roads that thread through the hills and the best fishing spots are tough to find. Pat can get you into these hard to reach places – on foot, or by Jet boat or drift boat.
Come to beautiful Sooke for an unforgettable ocean or river fishing adventure!

Another great day on the water!
Probably some of the slowest fishing with only a couple of light bites for our first 4 hours, however, Pat was persistent and with his patience we were able to catch our limit of wild Koho's.
We were even able to see the US Navy in action up and close.
THANKS AGAIN PAT!
Captain Pat was honest about what was the best fishing for that area. He was so humble we didn't know how good we did until several other fisherman all asked where we caught our fish.
He definitely knows his stuff and works hard to keep you in the fish. He's quite polite. You'll have a fun day!
