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

Big Bank has had some decent bites this past week near the Rat's Nose and South- East on the Egg. Barkley Sound had some good bites earlier in the week, though the fish were moving around from day to day, so it was a bit of a guessing game of where they would be. There have been some decent fish being taken in close to shore during both morning and afternoon trips. The bite has not been extremely fast, but the Chinook are mostly in the 12 to 25lb range with a couple around 30 lbs taken. Offshore small spoons, needle fish and cuddlefish hutchies are working. Inshore #3 Kingfisher spoons from Silver Horde have been working the best along with anchovies.

Halibut fishing has been pretty good at Big Bank on the troll, bottom bouncing Hali West and also on anchor. Coho are not showing up in great numbers yet, but are showing up both on Big Bank and in close to shore some days.
