King Salmon Resort - Boats

The Fishing Boats

Fishing is done two guests per boat from 17-foot Hourston Glasscraft boats with 4-stroke 50 hp Yamaha outboard motors.  The boats are located at the resorts dock in the inlet and a second fleet is positioned at the mouth of Rivers Inlet.   All of the boats are clean, equipped and ready to go when you are.  The hours of fishing are from dawn to dusk daily, weather permitting.  There is no limit on the use of the boat, outboard, fuel, tackle or bait during fishing hours.

King Salmon Resort provides guests with two opportunities for great fishing.  The first is right at the resort's doorstep in Shotbolt Bay where the Kilbella, Chuckwalla and Wannock river salmon converge.   The second is at the mouth of Rivers Inlet where a second fleet of boats is positioned at the "Outpost" near the famous "Wall".  Guests are transported for the day to the "Outpost" via the resort's 48' high speed cruiser. 

Although there are no individual guides available, the Fishmaster and crew are available to provide you with the benefit of years of experience to aid you in the hunt for the fish of your dreams while ensuring your comfort, safety and enjoyment.  A 16 foot support boat is also available for on the water support.

The Fishing Gear

All of the necessary gear is provided as part of your fishing package, although, you are welcome to bring your favorite rod and reel if you wish.  Quality 10 1/2 foot west coast mooching rods and single and double action reels equipped with 25 lb. monofilament line are provided.  All of the necessary tackle (hooks, etc.), brine and fresh-frozen herring is also provided.  Halibut gear is also available upon request.

For your comfort, custom designed 2-piece Mustang "Fishmaster" cruiser suits, rain gear and Helly Hansen boots (wide range of sizes) are provided for all guests.  Guests are also welcome to bring their own weather gear. 

Taking it with you

Yes, you can take it with you.  The crew will clean, fillet, freeze and pack your fish to take home with you (subject to current catch limits, of course).  Plastic bags and waxed boxes for airline shipping ensure that your catch arrives in Vancouver in prime condition.  Tags are provided to identify your fish when caught so you know you're taking home your fish to share with family and friends!

You may also have your catch canned or smoked, and the Fishmaster will make arrangements to have your fish processed and delivered to your home at a reasonable cost.
