Kyukuot, BC Salmon Fishing

Kyukuot is on the north west coast of Vancouver Island. There I found small river fishing for Coho (silver) and Chum salmon in untouched old growth Coho 3forest. A group of us traveled for two days from Colorado to Kyukuot in 2014. The same trip occurred in 2013 and 2015. Ocean fishing is available, but for us it was a fly fishing adventure among the old trees and black bears, usually within a mile of salt water. The Rugged Point Lodge, our home at Kyukuot, was a boat ride to the fishing where owner Matt and his guides were the only people we saw on the river except for two wildlife guys snorkeling down stream to count fish.
