I'm looking for some ideas on shore fishing for trout in the Victoria area. I'm not interested in sunfish or bass, so Elk/Beaver are out. Purpose is to teach my son how to fly fish so having wide open spaces and less people is beneficial. Langford has a dock which is decent, but there's far too many people that walk around it so the back casting would be a significant issue. Most others (Mathison, Thetis, Glen) all have beaches that at this time of year would be full of sun worshipers. What about some of the streams and rivers near here? I was thinking if there's access to Sooke River somewhere it might be decent. Has anyone ever fished Goldstream River or any of the smaller creeks with any luck?
