Simply Better Fish

The river systems of Port Alberni are teeming with Salmon and Steelhead at anytime throughout the year.  Our rivers are some of the healthiest in British Columbia resulting in beautiful, chrome fish right from the tidal boundary through to the headwaters. Not only are these fish gorgeous, but they also provide you with unsurpassed action.

Why Fish Here?

World class fishing, year round, is the answer. The Stamp, Sproat and Somass Rivers are known worldwide for their breath-taking beauty and incredible Steelhead and Salmon fishing.

The lower pools and runs are less than 3 miles from the tidal boundary and fresh salmon make this area some of the most exciting.

SALTWATER FISHING

Barkley Sound FIshing

Breathtaking scenery an hour boat ride from Port Alberni. In shore or the outer edge produce salmon all summer long.

The scenery never fails with all the islands providing calm sheltered waters, ruggedness as well as lots of wildlife from whales to Bald eagles adding to a great day on the water. 

PORT Alberni 
FISHING

Come fish the Alberni Inlet located minutes from the dock aboard our 25 foot Sea Ray Laguna named “My Michelle”.

The inlet provides sheltered waters with great fishing throughout the summer. Sockeye, Chinook, and coho are staging here before heading up the Somass and stamp rivers to their spawning grounds.

It was THIS big!
