    My New Years resolution, as I suspect may be many others, is to get some solid fishing in for 2020.

    I am keen to try new places over the summer so wanted to know what everyone's favourite fishing accommodations are on the west coast of Vancouver Island. My preference is usually to find somewhere set up for fishing, with a dock I can tie up at and a cleaning station/freezer set up.

    From Port Renfrew to Cape Scott, where are your favourite spots to stay and fish during the summer?

    I personally like Bamfield but I live in Alberni so I’m biased. Lots of good spots inside and offshore if the weather is good. If I wasn’t from the area I’d rent a house in west bamfield with a dock for a week or two every summer. There is a restaurant in bamfield, fuel, a mechanic , a store etc.

    Certainly not arguing any of the Bamfield locations but really if you want to fish Bamfield why not just stay in Ucluelet and fish Bamfield if you want it’s only a 30 min run over really, less to some of the same fishing spots. The road into Ukee is far better and the town has a whole heck of a lot more to offer. Just my thoughts.

    Where’s the restaurant in Bamfield?
    Only place I came across was what was known as the bistro but that closed.

    Doubt anyway can answer this question. With all the doom and gloom reported by the CBC this week I’m guessing last years regs at best. Probably worse.

    Really? That sounds interesting. Who's going to fix it and open it?
