Ucluelet BC Fishing Report June 27, 2024

Chinook Salmon

Fishing has been VERY good for Chinook in a couple of our favorite calm water spots and we have been hitting some good size Chinook for this time of year.

The water is shallower in these spots so the Chinook often run hard and fast since they can’t run deep. But there have been quite a few spots producing Chinook close to the harbour and some are totally protected water. Small 3″ spoons are a staple here, needlefish hutchies and white hutchies when fishing areas that hold squid.

Make sure you put something like garden hose in the new Scotty clips as the ones coming this year seem to be a bit weaker and you will most likely loose more fish if you don't do that. You may also want to put a manual counter on your downrigger as the new electronic counters have been giving us issues. Out of 4 brand new downriggers, 3 counters have been intermittent or not working.


Coho Salmon

Coho fishing has been good as well on some days and this is a bit surprising given that we are in June. Coho bite on small spoons trolling fast with shorter leaders. White hutchies also can work well.



Halibut fishing is still going strong and still close to shore. The size for halibut varies but we have been getting them mostly between 85-120 cm. Fishing tides can help or fishing the first few hours of the morning. Most halibut trips have had good bites.


We have some availabilty this next week so give us a shout if you are wanting to get out on some good action.

We have a few day trips available this next couple weeks.

Below are some more pics!
