Fishing at sunset (Picture BC photo)
Sheltered and calm waters peppered with islands make Sidney an easy fave with anglers.
The presence of needlefish by the hundreds of thousands brings hungry chinook salmon and enables year-round salmon fishing. Reefs and kelp beds make the area ideal for halibut and other bottom fish. The great Sidney fishing grounds begin just steps from the dock.
What to Catch
Chinook salmon up to 27kg/60lb, coho salmon up to 13kg/30lb, halibut up to 90kg/200lb and lingcod up to 18kg/40lb are four good reasons to pack a rod and ply Sidney's coastline. The chinook is known as "king" salmon in the US.
Landing the Tyee
Catch one over 13.61kg/30lb and it's the "tyee", in Native parlance, the fisherman's grail. Reel in a tyee and join the great BC fishing club at the top.
