Steeped in the folklore and traditions of the West Coast First Nations, the pacific salmon has long been regarded as a premier sport fish. The mighty Chinook salmon that can smoke line from reels, the acrobatic Coho, the feisty Chum, delicious Sockeye and trout-like Pink salmon all ply the waters of the Discovery Islands at various times during the year. From the turquoise waters of Bute Inlet to the turbulent waters of the Discovery Islands, this area has long been renowned for its abundant marine life and great sport fishing opportunities. A west coast fishing adventure from the docks of our luxury fishing lodge, Sonora Resort, provides excellent access to these scenic and superb fishing areas.
Everything you need for the comfort and safety of your fishing excursion will be provided to you at west coast fishing resort, Sonora Resort. We provide safe and reliable cruiser-style fishing vessels with partial cover from the elements and private marine toilets, as well as top of the line fishing equipment – to give you the best opportunity possible to land a beautiful wild west coast salmon. All of our professional guides are friendly, experienced, and Transport Canada Marine Safety certified, to provide you with an expertly guided and safe fishing trip. As the weather on the west coast changes frequently throughout each day, we will provide you with insulated floatation suits, rubber boots, rain gear and gloves as needed to provide you with the most comfortable British Columbia fishing experience possible.
