If you prefer to drop a line and catch salmon or bottom fish, you are at the right spot. The sockeye season starts early June and happens at our front door in the Alberni Inlet. As sockeye season begins to wind down, the larger chinook and coho salmon start to appear and can be caught through late September. Travelling a little further into the Barkley Sound provides increased opportunities to catch salmon April through September, as well as various bottom fish.
