October Fishing at Nootka Sound

Nootka Sound

Easily accessible by driving due west from Campbell River, the fine fishing grounds of the Nootka Sound area have brought smiles to the faces of countless sport fishermen. Resorts, lodges and guides are numerous in the area as well as lodging and services found in the nearby villages of Gold River, Tahsis and Zeballos.

Feeder Chinook up to 15 lbs. are available offshore during the winter months. Large migratory Chinook up to 40 lbs. start showing offshore in June and move inside in early July. The run will peak in August. Coho action starts in early summer and will peak in fall. September and October are the best Coho months. Nootka Sound is also an excellent producer of Rockfish, Lingcod and Halibut.
