Tuna fishing is also close enough to lure the adventurous angler
Brooks Peninsula sits near the top of the western side of Vancouver Island. It is remote and isolated and takes time to get here but those who do will be rewarded by fishing unlike most other places in B.C. This region is close to ocean migration pathways known as “the salmon highway” that channels fish to southern destinations. Every year salmon bound for southern spawning rivers travel en masse by the peninsula, and anglers here get first access to it.. The fish are silver, strong and fresh, and school in big numbers. As well, there are ample populations of halibut, cod and other bottom fish. And for those with a taste for offshore ocean adventure, there are tuna opportunities nearby, although it might take a trip beyond sight of land to find them. The community of Zeballos makes a great base for this adventure, and a good place to find a guide.
