Fly-In Wilderness River Drift

This fly-in fishing adventure is unlike anything else. Your morning begins at the Tofino harbour at the float plane dock. From there, you and your group will be flown to a pristine mountain lake. The location is an angler’s paradise. Once at the drop off point, you will begin your river drift in a 13′ self-bailing raft with an oar frame. It is perfectly designed for safety and comfort down the mountain stream.

Along the way you will have a chance to hook steelhead, cutthroat and coho depending on the season. The decision is yours whether to use a spin caster or a fly rod.


  • Take off from float plane dock typically at 8AM
  • Drift for the majority of the day through a gentle mountain stream
  • Mid-day picnic lunch on the river bank
  • Drain into a secluded ocean bay, where the plane will fly in to pick you up at the end of the day
  • Return to float plane dock by about 6PM

What they are Saying

Our family went out with Blake for the day in late July and we had a blast! Caught our limit of Halibut and Chinook salmon. Even got 4 crabs from the traps. Blake is an excellent guide who knows where the fish are and how to catch them. Came home with 130 lbs of tasty fish. I would recommend Blake and Cleanline charters to anyone wanting a good time fishing out of Tofino. Trip of a lifetime for sure.
