GUIDED SALMON FISHING

We offer an early morning, a mid-day and an afternoon departure time. Exact departure time varies, depending on the season. Please contact us for full details.

  • Available 6:00 a.m. - Noon and 2:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. daily
  • Enjoy longer distance trips to places like Chatham point, Ripple Point, Blind Channel, Davis Point and Denham Bay. The Outrages reach some of the best Chinook areas and avoid the crush of boats that descend on the closer sockeye/pink salmon hotspots. There will be plenty of time to stock up on sockeye and pinks and travel further afield to target Chinook.
  • Autumn sees plenty of great fishing with excellent runs of Coho and Chum salmon. A 20-foot boat helps smooth out the ride in the slightly choppier autumn waters.

20-foot Boston Whaler Outrages versus 17-foot Boston Whalers

  • 150 hp motor: The more powerful motor allows for a higher top speed, meaning Outrages can access remote fishing locations that we previously didn't reach.
  • Increased deck space: room to stretch on the longer ride
  • Comfortable seating for up to three guests and a guide
  • Center console: provides dry storage for items such as lunches and extra clothing
