HOW’S THE FISHING HERE?
The 2022 fishing season was great! Salmon and Halibut fishing was really good! We are expecting the 2023 season to be just as good!
The Chinook fishing has been great, and the no-retention during the peak has ensured a high number of egg layers made it up the rivers and will keep this awesome fishery going! Coho numbers are strong with exceptionally large fish this year! Halibut and bottom fishing has been good…as always!
Text, Call or Email now to reserve a prime spot for the 2023 fishing season while availability is good!

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 North Pacific waters of Prince Rupert ,home to some of the finest saltwater sport fishing in the world.
