Fish Vancouver Island’s most productive freshwater systems with some of the most experienced outfitters in the area. Kenzie and his team of guides have been guiding and fishing these waterways for decades, and know where the fish are and how to catch them. We live on the Cowichan River, so we have access to parts of the river that no other guides do! We can do sections of this river that other guides can’t.
