Ucluelet, British Columbia - Saltwater Fishing Report
Lighthouse Bank

Fishing is starting to pickup and we are seeing some larger Chinook start to show up. There still are lots of small feeder Chinook at all depths. Our guide Simeon released one about 20 lbs while trolling for halibut this morning, but they had already kept their limit of Chinook. The Chinook are spread out in many different areas including Longbeach bank and Inside and Outside Lighthouse bank. Halibut seem to be moving around a bit and you may have to try different spots during the morning, but there are a few around. This time of year Coyote and Silver Horde Spoons and needlefish hutchies seem to be the best.

Here is a video of salmon fishing highlights from last year!
