September fishing report Ucluelet BC

Ucluelet Halibut fishing during September stayed hot throughout the month which seems to be a trend in recent years. We didn’t do a lot of days offshore but when we did the halibut fishing was fast and the guests were stoked! You never really know what September fishing is going to bring.

The Chinook fishing was very hot at the end of August   Hot meaning get your limit of 6 Chinook in a couple of hours and expect some double hookups. As September rolled on, things slowed down.

The coho were around until mid September though not in large numbers. Normally we see a fair amount on Big Bank though we didn’t find them on the few days we were out for halibut.

We had a little patch of strong northwest winds early September which wasn’t normal so that kept us fishing close to shore for the first week. Overall the weather was decent and there were some good days with screaming reels.

Below are some pics from the past month.
