Where do you stay in Bamfield? Cross from Neah or trailer across the island?

Closed is closed. No crossing, regardless the method. No non-resident fishing licenses either.

I have always thought Trev (who runs No Bananas charters up N.) and I were brothers from other Mothers so maybe I can work that angle lol. After all this shit is over, If you ever want to go with a top notch guide who is truly a great human being as well give Trevor a call and book a spring trip out of Oak Bay or Barkley Sound trip in the Summer.

    Wasn't the point of my question. Understand closed is closed (unless you've got dual citizenship like me). Was just curious where you liked to stay in Bamfield. Unique place - love it there. Been a few years but I used to stay at Woods End Landing every year when I went. Started going into Bamfield back in the mid-90's

    Gotcha, I misunderstood. I thought you were suggesting it was ok to go via water now. You’re asking for when the border is open. Sorry.

    I don't see them opening up the rest of the year. Why would they? The USA can't get our collective shit together, much less agree on masks... why would Canada want our stupid germs?

    We just cancelled our September trip to Tofino.

    was thinking about trying that tournament in Tofino. This sort of seals the deal that there’s too much risk in assuming it’s gonna open up.

    I am not sure what Tournament you are speaking of? The Saltwater Classic was supposed to be the first weekend in July, but was cancelled. Is there another like the Legion Derby the last week in July?

    He’s talking about the big albacore tuna tourney they have up there every year.

    Closed does not mean closed. My Dad's Alberta outfitter is applying for some type of status that allows US residents in to hunt. Claiming his business "relies" on US customers for their livelihood. I would imagine this would extend to charters/resorts as well if they want to apply.....

    Applying for and granted are two different things. I would think if that was really a valid exemption, every fishing charter and lodge up there would have done just that as they rely heavily on US customers. Who knows though maybe has only recently become available. I hope your dad is able to go on his hunt.

    When the snow starts to fall in Calgary the border will open.....
    Those candian snowbirds will be screwed if they cant make it to their palm springs houses.
    We should reciprocally close our border to them!

    We still haven't cancelled our fall Sask trip, but the folks we rent a farmhouse from have told us the chances are nil from what they're hearing. I think this year would have been our 23rd, a bummer for all.
