Fishing Lodge and Charters on the West Coast of Vancouver Island BC

Imagine the Rocky Mountains towering above crystal blue Pacific waters, sandy beaches with magnificent rock formations, spectacular wildlife, and incredible fishing for salmon, halibut, and tuna. Welcome to Reel Obsession Sport Fishing on the west coast of beautiful Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada.

Reel Obsession is unique from other Vancouver Island fishing charter companies as we have two prolific fishing locations to meet the needs of our valued guests. Have the fishing trip of a lifetime at our oceanfront lodge in Zeballos, and experience thrilling year-round fishing charters in Victoria.

Zeballos Fishing Lodge & Resort

The breathtaking Zeballos inlet. West coast fishing lodge on Vancouver Island.

The lodge is located in the remote village of Zeballos, BC. If you enjoy majestic wilderness, then you will have a true appreciation for this west coast gem. Deep in the mountainous regions of Vancouver Island, nestled in the Zeballos Inlet, you'll find our west coast lodge and resort. Whether you are travelling in pairs or booking a corporate getaway, we have customized packages to meet your needs. Open from June through September and fishing the abundant waters of Esperanza and Nootka Sound, this incredible BC fishing region will not disappoint the most avid angler.

Huge Runs of BC Salmon, Halibut, Tuna, & More

Throughout the summer months Nootka Sound and Esperanza offer huge runs of chinook (king) salmon, coho salmon, Pacific halibut, lingcod, yelloweye rockfish, and tuna. During your stay you'll view some of the most spectacular scenery and wildlife British Columbia has to offer. We provide guided fishing charters, wildlife eco tours, comfortable accommodations, and chef prepared meals at our beautiful oceanfront fishing lodge. Vast numbers of fish inhabit the waters of Esperanza and Nootka Sound giving us some of the best salmon, halibut, and tuna fishing in BC.

Year-Round Fishing Charters in Victoria

We offer year-round fishing chartes in the brilliant and beautiful city of Victoria, BC. Whether you are visiting for business or pleasure, Victoria's mild climate makes it the perfect place to enjoy a winter retreat. Guided fishing charters are available in half or full day trips. Your adventure will begin in Victoria's inner Harbor, or East Sooke, a 20-30 minute drive west of downtown Victoria.

You'll have a thrilling fishing experience where you can expect to find a variety of salmon and halibut in some of the most plentiful waters on British Columbia's west coast. Catch a glimpse of magnificent grey whales, humpback whales, orcas, bears, and bald eagles during your time on the water.

Spectacular scenery, consistently big catches, and expert guides combine to make your fishing trip with Reel Obsession a truly unforgettable one.

Sustaining BC’s West Coast Fishery

Pacific Salmon Foundation

Working closely with the Pacific Salmon Foundation (PSF) and Canada’s Department of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO), the sustainability of our local fishery is amongst Reel Obsession’s top priorities. By various monetary contributions and volunteer efforts on the PSF committee, we actively support projects with the PSF and local hatcheries. Currently, Fisheries and Oceans Canada has a three year pilot study that all of our guides actively and proudly take part in.
