Ucluelet, British Columbia - Saltwater Fishing Report
Barkley Sound
Sam Vandervalk

There are fish in a quite a few areas offshore including Big Bank, Outside Light and Heisen. The local run of 15-30lb Chinook has started along the shore the last few days. Big Bank has been consistent for good numbers of small to medium sized Chinook and also decent amounts of halibut. The Rat's Nose to the east of the Egg is where most boats have been fishing for salmon, and the shallows are where people are getting the halibut. The inshore fishery has been pretty consistent for larger Chinook and we expect the inshore fishing will be good through early September. As expected, we have started to see some pretty good bites here.

We are booking packages for next year so make sure you get you spot very soon if coming in the busy season from June - September.
