Welcome to the Sooke Fishing Adventures website! On this page, we will post regular updates on what's happening with Sooke fishing, Vancouver Island fishing, and other news of interest to our fishing friends from around the world.

Some mixed fishing reports this week.  Some boats reported slow salmon fishing, others hooked into a few nice size ones but many wild fish that had to be thrown back (under the "slot limit", you can't keep wild salmon larger than 67cm).   However, there were a few nice hatchery salmon caught and one 24 pound wild salmon off of Sheringham Point, where the slot limit restriction ends.

Pictured is James Carter, with a nice wild salmon caught west of Otter Point, with an oki flasher and anchovy with a perfect "silver bullet" roll, at 90ft on the downrigger. The salmon was released healthy and happy, to get back to the home river and make lots of feisty salmon babies for future fishing trips.

Good luck out there!

May 15 Sooke & Victoria Fishing Report

There's been some nice salmon catches reported lately, but mostly everyone has been focused on halibut. Last weekend was Island Outfitters' Just for the Halibut Derby.  They could not have ordered better weather, dead calms seas, hottest weekend of the year, and good halibut tides. Seems just about everyone went home with a fish.   A 144 pounder won it, with a 142 weighed in last minute coming in a close second.

Gord from Foghorn Fishing Charters sent in a report "it was the best weather in derby history,  here is a pic of Don & Cliff with their 2 biggest for the weekend 85-65lbs. They have been fishing the derby with me for 11years now. Salmon fishing is good, though seals are a big problem, but we are getting some past them". Gord also included a few nice photos from a couple of weeks ago....those are 150 and 60 pound halibut, a derby winner if caught on the right day.

Good fishing!
