Location: Moutcha Bay Resort
On August 23rd, 2023 six families descended upon Moutcha Bay Resort in Tahsis, BC to experience fishing, the west coast, and some simple quality time all the while detached from mainstream society. There they spent 4 days and 3 nights with inclusive fishing opportunities spread across two days, each consisting of a morning and afternoon fishing trip targeting both salmon and a variety of bottom fish. Participants were assigned a fishing guide and a boat from Nootka Marine’s varied fleet of North River, Grady White, and Trophy boats, the bulk of which were powered by Yamaha outboards. The memories and laughs we all shared will be with us for a lifetime! The BCOSF Episode, Angling 4 Autism is sure to inspire anglers about the power behind the spirit of sportfishing!
