Fishing Report for Ucluelet, B.C. off the West Coast of Vancouver Island on Aug 22nd

Chinooks on the beach! The first of the much anticipated late season rock runners arrived with a bang this week. Wya Point all the way to the Red Can is producing chinooks averaging 14-20lb with a couple ranging into the mid twenties. A mix of anchovies and size 3 & 3.5 spoons are being fished with the preference changing by the day. Pack a good variety of UV/ glow flashers (blue and white footloose are a couple staples) as the fish can be a little picky, especially when fishing under a blanket of fog.

The offshore fishery at Big Bank continues to fire with 10-16lb Chinooks mixed in amongst enormous volumes of Coho. Stay tuned as any day now the arival of the Northern Coho will bring silvers ranging into the teens.

Halibut fishing Continues to be strong on the outter Banks. The shallows continues to crank offering up steady production on anchor. Limits of 15-40lb fish have been seen through the area for the last month. An influx of chickens onto Big Bank has seen many more troll friendly 10-15 pounders. These are a welcome bonus as they often come incidentally while salmon fishing.

If you are looking to get last minute accommodation for Ucluelet or Tofino check out www.tofino-info.com. Accommodation has been tough to find for July and August and you can always call the chamber of commerce if you can’t find anything.
