Guided Fishing – Vancouver Island, BC

I am offering guided fishing trips from our drift boat/jet boat on the Stamp River, Cowichan River, Gold River, and Salmon River.  I am also offering walk-in guided fishing trips to many smaller streams on the island.  Most island rivers can be fished 12 months of the year for salmon, steelhead and trout.  A guided day of river fishing begins at $425 a day depending on the stream you wish to fish.

Vancouver Island River Fishing

I fish the rivers of Vancouver Island from September to May each year with full-day or multi-day fishing excursions.

September 15th to October 31st – Coho/Chinook Salmon
November 1st to April  30th – Summer/Fall and Winter Run Steelhead
April to May 31st – Fly fishing for Trout

We offer walk-in, drift boat and Jet Boat day trips and multi-day trips to rivers all over the island.  Prices vary depending on the trip we arrange. We can arrange multi-day salmon and steelhead trips, any day of the year, that will take you to a different river every day and absolutely blow your mind. Contact us early so that we can tailor a spectacular trip for you.  If you need assistance getting accommodation in Port Alberni, Lake Cowichan, Campbell River or anywhere else on the island, we can make all the arrangements for you or point you in the right direction.We are provincially licensed to guide on rivers and lakes on Vancouver Island. So send me an email today with your dream fishing trip to the island, and we’ll make it happen.

Saltwater Salmon Fishing

From June to September I am the Head Guide at world famous Painter’s Lodge where I can guide you to fish three tides a day.

June to September – Chinook/Coho Salmon
July to August – Pink Salmon
September to November – Chum Salmon

My saltwater passion is Tyee fishing following the rules established in 1924.  Row boats, light line, no bait, no electronics.  Just plain fishing where the rower and the angler are partners in pursuit of big fish.

August 15 to September 15 – Tyee Fishing in the Tyee pool

You can book a saltwater salmon fishing trip with me by calling and asking for me to be your guide:
