Trolling for Salmon on Vancouver Island’s West Coast

British Columbia Fishing Charters

"Trolling for big spring salmon (also called king salmon by our friends south of the border) is my favorite passion when I am guiding on the west coast of Vancouver Island. Prime time for us targeting these incredible fish is June, July, August, and the first part of September. The biggest fish in the Nootka / Esperanza area show up around mid July and taper off by the middle of September."
