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

Salmon fishing for Chinook has been decent in Barkley Sound though you may have to travel around a bit to find your hot spot. Salmon are mostly going in the 5-12lb range with a few larger fish. Great Bear, Beg, Sail Rock, Swaile, Kirby and Vernon are the general hotspots to try. If you come on a fishing trip with us in the early season you can do some prawning and crabbing, so if you are looking to get a nice display of seafood, this is the time of year to come up.

Halibut are also being taken inside around Sail Rock as well as a few spots offshore.
