Tofino B.C. Vancouver Island Fishing Report July 2007

July is an excellent time to fish a variety of Saltwater and Freshwater species in the Tofino B.C. area, with great summer time conditions to compliment the whole experience.
Whether you are venturing to the offshore waters for Chinook, Coho or Pink Salmon, or fishing for Halibut and Bottom fish is your main focus, the offshore areas from Tofino are a great option.
Your main interest may be fly-fishing or angling with light tackle for Coho and Chinook salmon in and around the protected inshore waters of Tofino/Clayoquot Sound, then it is now a prime time to get out there. The experience of a fly-in freshwater excursion for Trout among the pristine mountain lakes or coastal rivers might even rank highest on your list, regardless, the Tofino-Clayoquot Sound area is a great multi-optional angling destination. The combination of aggressively feeding Salmon along the coastline, with relative protection and close proximity to the harbor, offers saltwater angler’s great opportunities for some of the finest Salmon action on the Vancouver Island coastline.
The 2007 season’s forecast of stronger returns of Coho than in 2006 is proving to be true, and the mid-late season forecast for WCVI Chinook Salmon in the 4-5 year old class is also very strong, many anglers should experience great times on the water.
The varied contours of Tofino’s near shore bank system provides ample habitat for Halibut in the 20-60 lb. range, within a very close proximity to the protected waters of the Sound. A local abundance of Sardines and Needlefish helps attract these hungry flat fish to the 12-14 mile wide shelf just off of the Tofino B.C. coastline.
Fly casters love this time of the year as most everything in the saltwater box can potentially entice a violent strike from feeding Coho salmon. Remember that a little bit of Krystal flash or Glow flashabou really livens up your fly patterns, often making a big difference. Our top producing Clayoquot Clouser, and our special Clayoquot Bucktails both include Glow flashabou in a variety of colors.
