Fishing at Van Riper's
Van Riper's Resort Home
Sekiu is well known for recreational fishing, especially salmon. From novice to expert, an angler can find just the right fishing experience they are looking for. One reason Sekiu is so popular is because even small boats can easily access the best fishing grounds. Rarely will you encounter rough water and seasickness associated with coastal ocean fishing. Sekiu is also an ideal spot for fish such as halibut, ling cod and sea bass, which you'll find absolutely delicious! Fishing seasons vary, but generally, salmon seasons are from July thru the end of September. Bottom fishing lasts from early spring throughout the summer. Usually, halibut season runs from the end of May thru June. Seasons are announced each April. Please call for current regulations.

Boating Options
You may bring your own boat, which we have moorage facilities for. Our services include a boat launching ramp and we'll provide a parking space for your boat trailer. Or, you may choose to rent a "kicker" boat. Rental boats are 16 feet in length and are available with a 15 hp motor. At this time we do not offer a charter service.
