Oli’s fishing Charters

Nestled in one of British Columbia’s secret spots lies Winter Harbour, which is located on the northwest coast of Vancouver Island. The sheltered harbor is a fisherman’s sanctuary and a gateway to your amazing adventure. Winter Harbour is remote and untouched compared to many over fished and populated spots and offers an abundance and variety of species. All 5 species of salmon swim along the coast throughout the season. Large runs of Chinook salmon (aka Spring’s or Kings) swim right off our doorstep with only a short run to the salmon highway. Winter Harbour also offers some excellent inside fishing for monster Marble River Chinook and huge coho runs that are heading up various rivers up the inlet. Our ocean waters offer excellent bottom fish including huge halibut, Ling Cod, Red Snapper (Yellow Eye) and a variety of rock fish.

Whatever your preference, we can provide it to you. Oli’s Fishing Charters, experienced, licensed, guided adventure, with all equipment provided.

Throughout your fishing adventure you will be surrounded by stunning scenery including breath-taking horizons and mountainous rainforests. Lots of local wildlife including Black bears scavenging the shores, bald eagles soaring above, breeching whales, porpoises, massive sun fish, sharks and much more. So bring your camera!

ARSC announces Costa Rica expansion!

Merry and I would like to officially announce that we are the new owners of the Sportfishing operation Pelagic Pursuits Costa Rica and the 31′ Luhrs Go Fish.  The boat is located at the world renowned Los Suenos Marina and Resort near Jaco, Costa Rica on the central pacific coast.
We now offer Offshore fishing for Sailfish, Blue Marlin, Black Marlin, Stripe Marlin, Yellowfin Tuna, Dorado, and Wahoo. If Inshore fishing is your game then you’ll love the Rooster fish, Cubera, Grouper, Jacks, Snook, and Tarpon.
Together with Captain Randall, mates Luis and Abrancy, we plan to offer our clients, friends, and family the same quality of experience we’re known for in the PNW! You can also expect to see and use the best products from Okuma, Raymarine, Tuf-line, P-line, and more.
Dedicated to customer service, reliable charter boats, friendly crew, and CATCHING FISH, we plan to bring our charter fishing experience to the table in Costa Rica!
Getting there is easy!  Most major airlines (including Alaska Airlines) fly to San Jose International Airport (SJO).  From there the drive SW to the Jaco area is less than 90 minutes on modern highways.  Rental cars are inexpensive as are transfers if you prefer not to rent a car.  Transfers, lodging and fishing can all be reserved through Merry or myself.
What about All Rivers & Saltwater Charters???  Everything will be business as usual at ARSC with plans only to continue and improve our 13 year charter service in Washington State!  Merry and I will be in Washington State May-October, managing ARSC on the ground, and travel back and forth every other month to Costa Rica November-April.  We will always be available via email, and phone 365 days a year.

Ayakulik Adventures in Alaska

Whether you want spectacular salmon fishing or Kodiak brown bear viewing – or both! – Ayakulik Adventures in Kodiak, Alaska, has what you’re looking for. Amy Fredette of Ayakulik Adventures has been guiding on the Ayakulik River since 1992. Let Amy and her professional staff introduce you to an Alaskan adventure of a lifetime here on Kodiak Island! Inline image 1

The Ayakulik River is home to the world famous Kodiak brown bear. With an abundant and endless run of salmon entering the river June through September, high concentrations of bears take advantage of this rich food source. A dream come true for all photographers! Photograph and view the bears fishing at the mouth of the river as salmon enter from the ocean waters, and along the river’s shoreline following the salmon as they continue upstream. With the lodge being located directly on the river, bear viewing is literally “right outside the front door!”

Inline image 1If you’re in the mood to wet your line, salmon fishing is king. The Ayakulik River receives the first run of salmon on Kodiak Island with the arrival of sockeye salmon in mid-May. This is a long and continuous fish run lasting until the first part of September. It is a truly unique fish run, boasting a yearly average of 300,000 sockeye. King salmon enter the Ayakulik June through July, while pink salmon enter mid-July to the beginning of September. Silver salmon enter mid-August through the month of September.

Here’s a better look at the fish species in the Ayakulik River:

?KING SALMON: The king salmon put up a long hard battle, and take a fly very well. The layout of the Ayakulik River is the best one will find within Alaska for catching these magnificent fish on a fly! The peak dates for kings are June 13 – July 26. Fish size: 15 to 50 lbs.

SILVER SALMON: The silver salmon is a very acrobatic Fish. They hit flies very aggressively and then proceed to leap and dive. They take both wet and top water flies equally. Peak dates for silvers are August 23 – October 4. Fish size: 8 to 20 lbs.

Inline image 2SOCKEYE SALMON: The sockeye salmon are hard fighting and the most delicious fish to eat. The Ayakulik has an excellent continuous run of sockeyes throughout the summer. Peak dates for sockeyes are June 4 to August 29. Fish size: 5 to 15 lbs.

PINK SALMON: The pink salmon, the smallest of the salmon species run in abundant numbers and take flies very well. They can be fished along with sockeyes in late July and August or with silvers in August and September. Peak dates for pinks are July 20 to September 10. Fish size: 2 to 12 lbs.

STEELHEAD TROUT: The steelhead trout have two runs on the Ayakulik. The “out” going run in the summer then the “in” coming run in the fall. Steelhead take both wet and top water flies. All steelhead are catch and release. Peak dates for steelhead are June 4 to June 26 and August 23 to October 4. Fish size: 24 to 48 inches
