Will be in Bamfield 17-21 June - should be into the Sockeye by then I would imagine.albernifisher said:Sockeye fishing should start in another 5 weeks and pick up speed as we head into july.If there is no rain, the first week of july is usually awesome!Quadrupile headers not uncommon
I'f your thinking of makeing a trip over here the best thing you could do would be to call one of the local tackle shops for a fishing report
We are staying in Bamfield at the Woods End Landing cottages. Would definately be interest in buying a beer or 6 for any man who comes bearing sage advise. Having never fished Barkley in June we are excited and very curious as to what we will find in the way of good fishing. Sockeye would be a real treat.albernifisher said:fishing for sockeye will probably still be a little spotty.All the normal gear pink or red hootchies,short leaders,and don't forget the more gear in the water,the better.Before you leave home send me a e-mail and I can give you a full up to date fishing report
I may be in bamfield the same time your there.Where are you going to be staying?might meet you for a couple of stories/cocktails :wink:

Steelie,steelie 99 said:Iam for sure in alberni for those dates as the channel will be on fire!! Lets all hook up and have ourselves a little derby. I have fished bamfield and barkley sound in and off shore a dozen time and having most success 10 miles offshore from the alberni inlet. Amazing fishing to be had!! Almost as fun as when i was guiding at Queen Charlotte lodge!!
Keep in touch!!
Both areas should produce....the Sound will naturally produce better because it's next to the open ocean and gets all the fresh runs of fish...I have had some awesome results from Port Alberni harbour all the way to the Franklin River and even further. Cheers!realistic taxidermy said:Can I get in on this too? Let me get this straight; are you fishing the channel around China creek? or out front in the sound??
