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

Fishing has been more of a roller coaster than we expected though most days have been successful. Bite times are happening early some days and some days later in the day. Experience and cunning have been necessary to still bring in good numbers on days when most boats have been slower. The good news is that most people are going home with good amounts of fish for their freezers and bites are getting more frequent. We have heard there are large numbers of fish just north of us so our bite frequency should be going up dramatically. I will say we are a little spoiled in that if we aren't limited with salmon at 10:00 we can rate it as a slow day. Small 3-3.5 inch spoons are working well, especially the 3.5 inch Silver Horde and Coyote spoons.

We have been getting fish at Long Beach, Great Bear, Sail Rock and Big Bank. For the last week there have been Gray and Humpback Whales working between Great Bear and Sail rock, so it makes a little fishing bonus.

Halibut have been consistent on the days we have fished them at Big Bank, Long Beach and other areas.
