NOOTKA SOUND, BC SALMON FISHING LODGE
Vancouver Island Fishing Charters
Your Hosts Gary and Karen Foster
“You’ve been dreaming of a BC salmon fishing trip long enough, it’s time to experience it!”
Visit Oyster Island in Nootka Sound on the West coast of Vancouver Island and experience our famous BC salmon fishing. Chinook Salmon (Kings) and Coho Salmon runs from June to September. The bottom fishing for whitefish including Halibut (view our youtube video), Ling Cod, Snapper and Black Bass is fantastic and the BC coastal scenery is unbelievable.
The winter months are our favourite time of the year on Oyster Island. From November to March there is an abundance of crab, clams, oysters and prawns in Nootka Sound. Collecting them is half the fun and seafood doesn’t get any fresher, or tastier, than this. Winter storms and big fish stories provide our entertainment.
We would like to share our piece of paradise with you. Historical Nootka Sound is on the beautiful West Coast of Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada. Marine life and wildlife abound in this area and it is not unusual to see Grey or Humpback Whales, and maybe even a Killer Whale, Sea Lions, Seals, Bears, Eagles, Pacific Loons and much more all depending on the time of the year. Nootka Sound fishing combines natural beauty with natures abundance and is truly Vancouver Island fishing at its very best! Here are a few Photos of Oyster Island.
Vancouver Island Hospitality
Your meals at Oyster Island fishing lodge will be a taste experience. We try to cook healthy as possible, using our own home grown greens and fresh herbs and lots of seafood in what we like to call our West Coast style of cooking.
During the winter/spring months after an adventurous day of collecting seafood and seeing the sights of Nootka Sound you can relax in our saltwater wood heated hot tub, or tell some scary stories by the campfire before going off to bed to cuddle up in a homemade quilt.
Besides having the lodge to stay in there is a very cute honey-mooners cabin for couples all situated on a 20-acre privately owned island. The lodge is accessed by taking a 45-minute boat ride or seaplane from Gold River to Oyster Island. Once you get to Oyster Island the lodge is a 100-meter walk across the beach or you can take a trail through the old growth forest. You do need to be in relatively good shape to get back and forth from your cottage in the woods to the dock. The lodge has a large eat in kitchen, living room, 2 bedrooms, flush toilet and hot shower. It can accommodate up to 6 guests comfortably. (view our YouTube video).
Our fishing and touring boat is a 25Ft welded aluminum SilverStreak, with a 225hp Honda outboard, and a 9.5hp kicker. The heated cabin is fully enclosed and in case of emergency there is a private porta potty in the cuddy. We supply all fishing gear, tackle, bait and look after you and your catch until you leave us.
Take advantage of our 4 night/3 day fishing packages or mix fishing with sightseeing boat tours or sightseeing eco tours. We can put together the Vancouver Island, BC getaway you have dreamed of.
