Ray’s Sport Fishing Charters
Salmon, Halibut & Bottom Fish
We fish out of Tahsis inlet were we have the option of going out Nootka Sound or Esperenza sound.
Ray has been fishing the west coast from Kenai, Alaska – to Victoria, BC since 1978. I have found the fishing in this area to be the best all around fishing bar none on the west coast. The salmon highway that we regularly fish is known by every guide on the west coast. There is an abundance of feed for these fish and schools of fish from every river on the west coast pass by here on their migratory route during peak season June until September.
I suggest when booking to book for three days on the water. As we cannot predict the weather. The west coast can get rough and with a three day charter this allows us a good window to get to our fishing grounds.
Our Season is May to September
We can also put together packages for March, April and May | Halibut, Ling Cod along with Prawn packages.
