Fly-In Wilderness River Drift

This fly-in fishing adventure is unlike anything else. Your morning begins at the Tofino harbour at the float plane dock. From there, you and your group will be flown to a pristine mountain lake. The location is an angler’s paradise. Once at the drop off point, you will begin your river drift in a 13′ self-bailing raft with an oar frame. It is perfectly designed for safety and comfort down the mountain stream.

Along the way you will have a chance to hook steelhead, cutthroat and coho depending on the season. The decision is yours whether to use a spin caster or a fly rod.

  • Mid-day picnic lunch on the river bank

What they are Saying

We had an amazing family experience with Cleanline Sportishing in Tofino! Blake knew just how to keep the interest of our 2 and 4 year old as we pulled up all sorts of sea creatures in the crab traps. The kids took turns driving the boat while we waited for me to catch my first Salmon. I really appreciated how flexible Blake was to our family’s needs. This Eco-Fishing adventure showed us the beauty of Clayoquot Sound as we saw eagles, sea lions and even a pod of porpoises. We would definitely do this trip again.
