Tofino Fishing Report for September 2007

by Jay Mohl, Tofino


After another outstanding August fishery on Vancouver Island's west coast, the Tofino/Clayoquot Sound area continues to produce great action and prime opportunities for Chinook and Coho Salmon, as well as various Bottom fish and Halibut. Freshwater anglers can also expect great opportunities during the month of September, with most Rivers, Streams and Lakes offering some of the season's finest action.

We are fortunate to have a strong forecasted return of Chinook in the 4-5 year class, as well as solid numbers of Coho Salmon destined to the Stamp/Somass River and other systems along the south island. The fantastic salmon fishing experienced in August, will no doubt spill over in to the month of September, prolonging the "peak" season as it has in previous years. The commonly reliable weather patterns of September in Tofino often help create the setting for some of the premier salmon fishing opportunities on the British Columbia coast for late season Chinook and Coho Salmon. By the second and third week of September, the large transient Chinook Salmon start to thin in numbers along Tofino's rugged coastline, but the offshore waters often continue to provide a mix of mature and juvenile Chinook through early October. Opportunities for large Coho Salmon in the offshore waters is outstanding, and the near shore waters of Tofino/Clayoquot Sound provide a light tackle fishery during September and October that is favored by many. These Coho have gained world famous notoriety for being one of the hardest fighting salmon, and the Tofino area is the ideal location to do battle.

Trolling mini flashers and small spoons, as well as needlefish hoochies and mini Tomic plugs are all great light tackle options to test your skills with Coho Salmon that can push the 20 lb. mark.

This time of the year is often the height of Saltwater Fly fishermen's season, with large, aggressive Salmon hitting most flies with a vengeance. Cast flies like the Chartreuse Clayoquot Clouser or trolled Pink/Chartreuse Buck tails will entice the true feeding characteristics of these great sport fish. Try Kutcous Pt., Chetarpe, or B.S. Pass with flooding tide the best.

Each season, more and more anglers arrive with their own vessels from the east coast of Vancouver Island, as the inshore waters of the Tofino/ Clayoquot Sound area lure in the Salmon, as well as the Salmon anglers to battle it out with a variety of light tackle.

For some absolutely phenomenal late season fishing, consider Tofino's various options for a weekend getaway.
