Ucluelet - Saltwater Fishing Report
Busy rods and calm seas entertained anglers offshore this week. The the fleet has been split between the Southwest Corner and Big Bank. The Fraser River chinooks chomped steadily through the first half of the week between the outside light and the corner. 3-4" Maverick and herring aid spoons on blue chrome boards were the staples. For those that prefer to fish without the flasher, this week's been a good week. Big 6-7" spoons like superiors and clendon Stewarts took limits of chinooks with some reaching well into the mid 20's. The Bank continues to produce enormous volumes of Coho from 4 to 10 lbs with chinooks mixed in around the 100' mark.
For those looking to fish the rocks, chinooks are being taken all through the surf line by those who show patience. Pick your favorite hunters and keep rubbing the rocks. Any day now we're expecting a serious push of local rivers chinooks into Wya and surrounding areas.
Halibut fishing was good this week with most fish coming on anchor. The outside light and the shallows saw the majority of the halibut taken. Some fantastic size came out of lighthouse bank with limits of 20-45 pounders mixed in with some oversized 60-100 Pound fish released. Big bank has continued to steadily produce 10-30 Pound fish from the shallows to the whales tail.
