Freshwater Fishing Experience

Starting from the shores of a crystal clear mountain lake, you will spend the day leisurely drifting through pristine temperate rainforest that has never been touched by roads, logging or mining. The river setting takes you back in time and reminds you of how things were 300–400 years ago. You may fish as you go, take a fly fishing lesson and have a chance at catching wild cutthroat or rainbow trout in the crystal clear waters of the river, as you float back toward Tofino.

This trip can accommodate up to a maximum of 3 passengers. Once at the drop off point, the river drift will be carried out on a 13′ self bailing river raft with an ore-frame, ideally designed for comfortable and safe navigation of this gentle mountain stream. The Freshwater Fishing Experience will be hosted by Tofino Air, the local, reliable float plane company in Tofino.

What they are Saying

This is a blast. Blake is the perfect host, the boat is very well equipped and you feel safe in his hands. We spent a few hours going far up Clayquot Sound, pulled some crab traps, some prawn traps, and took in the incredible views. I highly recommend this kind of adventure. If you’re not into fishing, don’t worry because the crabbing and prawning are a blast and the scenery is breathtaking. Blake’s knowledge of the area add that much more to an already excellent time.
