Salmon Eye Charters targets four locations to make sure you are always on hot BC salmon fishing! Salmon Eye Charters is committed to bringing you the best experience possible. Sam and Ray Vandervalk are Christians and this reflects the way they do business. We demand excellence and expect you to have the best! Many 8-hour Ucluelet fishing trips see a full 200 litre cooler of salmon and halibut. This fishing compares with Alaska! Fish can be cleaned and packaged for travel anywhere in the world.

Ucluelet B.C. - May to August: Halibut and Salmon trips in Ucluelet. Offshore trips for Chinook(Kings) and Halibut in May and June. Fish closer to shore during July and August. Coho start to show in June. Fast paced action and a ton of fish. This has been arguably the best spot to fish on the West Coast of B.C. the last few years.

Port Alberni B.C. - June 21 to July 31: Sockeye salmon fishing trips in the Port Alberni inlet. Load up on the tastey Sockeye. Fish with an experienced guide who knows the area well! August 18- August 30: Return of Trophy Kings (Chinook) to the Port Alberni inlet. The famous Port Alberni Derby runs Labour Day weekend.

Qualicum/Parksville - June to September: Fish Hornby Island in the large Qualicum area for Chinook. August 18 - September 15 return of Large Chinook to mouth of the Qualicum Rivers. Charter fishing is the way to go here!

Port Alberni is situated at the head of a beautiful inlet with many surrounding mountains. You can check our map for location.

A large run of Sockeye Salmon enters the Port Alberni Inlet during June and July. In the last week of June and first two weeks of July sockeye fishing is at its best. It is common to hook 15-30 sockeye per morning and an action packed morning will see up to 40 Sockeye hooked!

The King salmon return in the last couple of weeks of August brings some thrilling action! Large schools return to give every one an opportunity to hook into a big one. People come for miles to experience the Port Alberni Inlet to enjoy calm water, beautiful scenery and large runs of returning salmon. Maybe this is on reason Port Alberni is called the salmon capital of the world. It is an experience worth knowing.

Campbell River is midway up Vancouver Island. Also dubbed salmon capital of the world, it has been known to produce great numbers of fish. The fishing usually starts picking up here halfway through June though it tends to be variable. The main target is chinook though it is possible to get halibut while fishing at the slack tides or while trolling for chinook. The scenery of the surounding mountains make the fishing trip something to remember. You also will have a chance to see whales and much other wildlife.

Qualicum and Parksville are about 5 mins apart on the eastern coast of Vancouver Island, and are only 30 minutes north of Nanaimo, the central Island's main city. There are many attractions here such as Cathedral Grove, Horne Lake Caves, and Golf. But of course, fishing tops the list!

In June, a big run of fat Columbia salmon head home and pass the Qualicum area. The last few years, fishing has been best around Hornby Island starting in June and lasting until August. From June to September, King salmon head though this area on their way to various rivers. The Qualicum Rivers host a good run of King salmon from August 15 to the end of September that can give some spectactular fishing! The pictures below are a sample of what you would experience.

Qualicum and Parksville do not receive the weather of the West Coast. Usually, the summer weather is sunny and the ocean is calm. (You shouldn't have to bring any Dramamine.)
