Salmon fishing on Vancouver IslandWe've seen increased salmon numbers coming in to the resort over the last week, and we are still expecting a huge run of salmon to arrive any time now. Word from northern spots, like Nootka Sound, is that the salmon are on their way in a huge force. We are ready, and can hardly wait!

Here are some of our latest catch-o’-the-dayers:

  • 32 lb halibut by Matt Schneider of Langley, BC
