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.
