Fishing Report August 6, 2019 Ucluelet BC

The production at Big Bank continues to impress us with good numbers of Chinook, Coho and Halibut. Both the troll at the south egg and bottom bouncing at Hali West have produced halibut. We expect Big Bank to continue producing until at least mid August if not longer.  Quite a few areas are producing fish on Big Bank which tells us there are a ton of fish out there.

The Chinook fishing has been a bit sporadic in close to shore with most bites coming around Wya and Florencia, The Red Can and Little Beach. However, the fishing in close has been a bit better than what we expected for late July/early August. The large run of Chinook we are expecting has started coming through earlier than expected and there are already Chinook up in the Port Alberni Inlet. This means  the bites may start getting very good in close to shore soon. Why does this get us so excited? Because the smallest Chinook you generally catch here range from 12-30 lbs and almost all of the fish are returning to the rivers which means good size and good fights. So you need to get out fishing!

We still have a few day trips available and a couple packages so call as soon as you can to book . If you are looking for additional things to do check out

Below are some photos from the past couple weeks.
