We Fish Hard For You To The Last Cast!

2021 Barkley Sound Outlook - the Chinook run forecast is 133,000 fish. We have full limits - 2 Chinook per day, 4 in possession. This will be a solid fishery!

Pat Ahern and team have many decades of fishing experience that we offer our guests. Our Guides are Transport Canada safety certified and are CTAG certified. We operate Grady White charter vessels, which are Transport Canada Safety certified, and equipped with washrooms. We have a passion for sharing our fishery with guests and creating adventures that will leave lasting memories. Our interest is in providing honest fishing reports - we tell it like it is, that way you can plan with full knowledge of what fishing conditions are likely to be. While we cannot control the fishing, we will do our best to offer solid advice on when to book your trip based on past experience. Moreover, we will put in the extra effort to ensure you have a successful fishing experience...in other words, we fish hard to the last cast for you. Our season starts in April, where we fish Nanaimo, Nanoose and French Creek until mid-June. We move over to Port Alberni and Bamfield, fishing Barkley Sound and off-shore for Salmon and Halibut. Barkley Sound also offers amazing opportunities to see whales and other wildlife.

Come And Experience The West Coast Fishing Experience

Barkley Sound

Near Ucluelet, BC

We offer salmon and halibut fishing charters departing from Port Alberni, to Barkley Sound, Bamfield and fishing offshore. These areas offer truly wild west coast fishing experiences. Offshore halibut, ling cod and salmon trips are 2 to 4 day adventures - we base these trips from Bamfield staying at local lodges so we can be out on the water quickly. For these adventures, we will pick up and drop off guests in Port Alberni, saving you the long drive to Bamfield.

Barkley Sound offers some amazing opportunity to view Hump Back Whales, Eagles, Sea Lions and other marine mammals such as Pacific White Sided Porpoises.

Port Alberni

Vancouver Island, B.C.

We offer guided fishing charters in the Alberni Inlet, in Port Alberni, B.C. In June and July we target sockeye, which migrate up into the inlet staging to run into the Somas River. These fish are highly sought after as they are very tasty and a perfect size fish for younger fishers. Sockeye trips are usually 4 to 5 hours in length, departing the dock at first light for the best fishing.
We also offer Inlet Chinook and King fishing trips in late August and early September. These trips are 6 hour morning trips.

Nanoose Bay

Near Nanaimo, BC

We offer salmon fishing charters departing from Nanoose Bay in the spring (April to June). These trips target Chinook (King) salmon that stage in the east coast Vancouver Island. We offer both full day fishing adventures and an evening night-bite special. North Nanaimo fishing trips are great for families and children. Give the family an experience to last for a lifetime.

While out fishing we do on occasion encounter Killer Whales, sea lions and other wildlife such as Bald Eagles.
