With its long coastline, large inlets and many lakes, the Sunshine Coast offers year-round fishing.
Various types of salmon are available over the course of the year: Chinook, Coho, Pink, Sockeye and Chum. Other saltwater species include Red Snapper, Ling Cod, Rock Cod, Flounder and Tommy Cod.
The closest freshwater fishing to Sechelt is Trout Lake, which is just 10 km north of Sechelt, alongside the highway. Near Pender Harbour, Garden Bay Lake, Hotel Lake and Mixal Lake support fish. Trout, Cutthroat and Kokanee are available in Sakinaw and Ruby Lakes, further north.
Boat rentals, equipment and bait are available in many of the local marinas and guided fishing tours will help you get the most out of your time here. Drop by one of the marinas for information on the best spots to fish for the current season, plus charts, licences, and information on restrictions, limits and "Red Tide" closures.

Sunshine Coast Resort
Tzoonie Outdoor Adventures Wilderness RetreatTzoonie Outdoor Adventures Wilderness Retreat is located on a remote shore of the "Inland Sea" nestled in a rainforest on the Sunshine Coast north of Vancouver. Surrounded by coastal mountains, alpine meadows, streams and lakes, this little piece of paradise is only accessible by boat or floatplane.
A well kept secret is the great sea-run cutthroat fishing in Narrows Inlet and the Tzoonie River. Troll from a kayak, cast from our beach or we can arrange for a charter boat for reef fishing (lingcod, red snapper, etc.), or perhaps some salmon fishing. Baitfish and ocean perch are plentiful from our docks or you can beachcomb for oysters and other shellfish which are also plentiful.
