We are catching fish in a few areas. Big Bank has been consistent for good numbers of small to medium sized Chinook and also good amounts of halibut. The Rat's Nose to the east of the Egg is where most boats have been fishing. The inshore fishery has been pretty consistent for larger Chinook and we expect the inshore fishing will be good through early September. It will mostly likely really pick up as mid-August comes since the Port Alberni fish will start coming up the shoreline. We expect some pretty good bites to start here.

The long weekend is here and we hope you have a great time on the water. The forecast is good for the next few days. Make sure you bring sunscreen, as it is getting hot starting around 10 am.

If you are looking to get last minute accommodation for Ucluelet or Tofino check out www.tofino-info.com. Accommodation has been tough to find for July and August so make sure you book right away.
