Tofino Fishing Report August 2002

by Jay Mohl, Tofino


Great weather, stunning scenery, diverse recreation opportunities, and fantastic fishing... August in Tofino. Not too hard to take.

If you are interested in chrome bright, acrobatic Coho Salmon on the cast fly, or searching the deeper waters around Tofino for long running, tackle busting Chinook. Powerful Halibut of various sizes, along with the plethora of Bottom-fish to provide an interesting mix.

August is a prime part of the season in the Tofino/Clayoquot Sound area, with angling opportunities providing a great diversity of species, as well as numerous areas of fishable water. Undoubtedly, the most notable option is the renewed access to fish the outer coastline of the Sound, and its many scattered islands and reefs for large Chinook salmon. These maturing Salmon are attracted to stage in the shallow, baitfish rich areas of Tofino's outer coast, enroute to their natal streams nearby.

As of August 1st, retention of Chinook in Tofino is limited to 2 per person per day, while only 1 can be over 77cm. Watch local regulations for a potential spot closure at Wilf Rock for part of August.

Even as promising, are the phenomenal numbers of Coho Salmon expected to return to most systems along the coast around Tofino, providing awesome light tackle action for both gear and fly fishermen. This season will be the best yet, for sprotsfishing anglers interested in catching large late season Coho on the fly. Don't disregard the great bottom fishing opportunities that await offshore. Halibut, Ling Cod and various other bottom fish provide great action through the late fall.

Come and see for yourself why Tofino is labelled one of British Columbia's premier sport-fishing destinations.
