We are happy to announce that we are now taking bookings for charters in Prince Rupert BC for the 2021 fishing season.
Due to the covid-19 pandemic, we are following local Haida Gwaii public-health guidelines and suspending our Masset operations until visitors are once again welcome.
Our safety plan, including thorough cleaning of the boat & equipment was a great success last summer and the community of Prince Rupert has been very welcoming to safe tourism.
We expect 2021 to be just as safe and inviting for our out of town guests.
HOW’S THE FISHING HERE?
The 2020 fishing season has been really good! We had a late start but July, August and the beginning of September have had good Chinook and Coho salmon numbers and has also been really good for Halibut and bottom fish.
… call us to book your 2021 fishing adventure today!
…some nice catches and testimonials
Here on Canada’s North Pacific coast, the great fishing coupled with the raw beauty and adventure out on the water makes a day with Wildfish charters a “must do!” after all, your coming this far, don’t miss out on this amazing experience!
We pursue the many runs of open ocean pacific salmon arriving on their coastal migration to the thousands of spawning rivers and creeks all along the BC coast, Alaska, Washington, Oregon and California. These fish are prime ocean fresh and instinctively feeding hard to prepare for their “natal homing” journey, at this point they are as big and strong as they will ever be! The fishing here can be unbelievable, especially from the months of May to September.
Chinook (King) salmon up to 50 lbs or more can be caught all season long and 20+ lbs are common. Coho (Silver) salmon are plentiful and feeding hard, they just get bigger and bigger through the summer. Halibut are also abundant here, especially in the regulations allowable size limits… so getting “keepers” happens often for us. Some of the most productive shallow and deep sea Halibut fishing on the north coast is right here, and we know how to catch them!
Wildfish sportfishing charters invites you to join us at the beautiful and wild Pacific waters of Prince Rupert and Graham Island, Haida Gwaii, formerly known as the Queen Charlotte Islands, home to some of the finest saltwater sport fishing in the world. We offer half day, full day or multi-day fishing charters targeting Salmon (especially big Chinooks), Halibut, bottom fish and if you choose, Dungeness crab.
Our fast boat will have you to our best fishing spots within 30-45 minutes, so you’ll be having a long day full of exciting fishing…not a day of long slow boat rides! When we arrive at those great fishing spots, don’t expect it to be crowded either…it never is, sometimes the only other boats around are from the nearby lodges and a few other local charters.
So many fishing enthusiasts like you dream of finding that ultimate fishing spot…and you’re willing to travel to the ends of the earth to find it! BC’s North West coast is one of those places, it’s remote, but once you make it here, its only a short boat ride and you’re fishing in wild, uncrowded spots for fish that have never seen a hook!, So if your planning that fishing trip of a lifetime or just want to get a day or two of great fishing in while your here in Prince Rupert or on your Haida Gwaii island vacation, call Wildfish Charters. We’ll provide you with a great boat, excellent gear and put you in the best spots with Pro guide Darren Pearson.
