Nootka is known for Chinook salmon fishing in the calm waters
inside the Sound, right in front of Critter Cove.

Critter Cove has everything for your ultimate fishing adventure, whether you have your own boat to fish on your own, or would like a cottage package that comes with a boat for self guided fishing.

Nootka Sound is a destination fishery, meaning thousands of salmon return to Nootka each year to the Conuma Fish Hatchery. Many popular fishing spots are right by the lodge in the protected, calm, inside waters. For those who prefer some open Pacific fishing, the entrance to Nootka and the Pacific beyond, is a short run of 16 kilometers away.
