Welcome to Sooke Salmon Charters! They’ve been offering quality guided fishing since 1986, with lifelong local fishing expert Rollie Rose. He’s a local with over 50 years of experience fishing in these waters. Specializing in light tackle fishing for trophy Chinook Salmon, Capt. Rollie will take you on a trip you’ll always remember. The trips are available year round, so you choose when your adventure starts.

You’ll be fishing on a clean and safe, West Coast built boat that accommodates up to 4 guests. This 25’ Seasport comes powered by a 200 HP Yamaha engine, navigational electronics, a galley, and a private toilet.

During the summer months, the boat is berthed in Sooke Harbour and all trips depart from the docks there. From November to May, you can follow local fish runs between Sooke, Victoria, and Sidney.  The crew will arrange to meet you at the docks in those areas closest to the best fishing at the time.

Fish are cleaned and bagged for shipment free of charge. Fish processing is available for a reasonable cost, including on site vacuum packing. There’s a professional grade chamber sealer and use 4 mil bags for maximum storage life in your freezer. The prices below included taxes.

Vacuum packing requires that the fish be left with the crew overnight to be processed and frozen. They also carry shipping supplies to transport on your flight home (coolers, ice pack, tape).

All fishing equipment and bait are included, as well as coffee, bottled water, and sodas. Fishing licenses are now only available online. You can buy your licenses anytime prior to your trip. They must be printed off to paper copies and then brought with you on the day you fish.

I have fished our local waters since the late 60's and owned my own boat and fished alone since I was 13 years old. My family has owned a beachfront cabin since 1958. in front of the best fishing grounds and my grandfather gave me the fishing bug. We still have the cabin today. I started my full time guiding career in 1986. and have since enjoyed the company of people from all over the world. I'm also on the board of a couple of non profit society's that do Salmon enhancement projects in our local waters. One since 2001 and the other for the past 6-7 years.
