Nootka Sound Fishing Charter with Rodney’s REEL Outdoors

Gold River Salmon
Nootka Salmon

Every year in early August I do a guided fishing trip to the West Coast with 3 guests for 5 nights and 6 days. 2 days for travel and 4 days fishing. Our 2017 trip will be from August 7th to August 12 and has now been booked. The Nootka Sound area is known for its beautiful, calm sheltered waters and the only time you’ll need to go to the outside waters is if you decide to fish for bottom fish like Halibut, Cod and Rockfish on the Bajo Reef. Starting in mid July the Conuma river Chinook return to the inside waters of Nootka Sound. These fish are the larger mature Chinook that are returning to the Conuma river to spawn in late September. By early August these fish are stacked up inside and this makes for some incredible fishing. Last year fishing one evening, after an awesome supper of blackened rockfish we’d caught earlier and a cool beverage we had 2 double headers and even a triple header! Needless to say I’m pumped about this years’ trip to Nootka Sound! This trip books up quickly every year and we are already booked for 2017. If you’d like more info feel free to contact me anytime.

What’s Included

Transportation from West Kelowna, ferry, fuel and accommodations. All your food including breakfast, lunch and dinners. 4 days guided fishing and we’ll fish as late as you want! All our fishing equipment is the best…Shimano and G.Loomis mooching rods mated with Islander reels for Salmon and when bottom fishing we use Shimano Trevala and Talora jigging rods mated with Talica 12 – 2 speed reels. On the business end of things we use Gibbs – Delta flashers, spoons, teasers, jigs and so on.

Getting There

Our departure is from West Kelowna and we travel to the Tsawwassen ferry terminal. From here we sail to Nanaimo on Vancouver Island. Our route then takes us through Campbell River and on to Gold River. Once in Gold River we have a short 50km. drive. Total travel time including the ferry is approximately 10 hours.
