Ucluelet Fishing Report - July 2nd, 2019

Fishing Report July 2, 2019 Ucluelet BC

The fishing went from being mediocre in mid June to having great numbers of Chinook running along the shore along with lots of feed to keep them there. The best part for avid fisherman is that the size has been larger than expected. Our guide Darren landed the first Tyee of the year a couple days ago and there have been more Chinook in the 20’s than expected. Of course we are also getting lots in the teens. And the news gets even better!

Coho have also come in close to shore in good numbers so that means we are getting lots of action throughout the morning. Our prediction at the beginning of the year was 2-3 times as many Coho as last year and we are starting to see that come to pass. Catching salmon in shallow water is always more fun and having incredible scenery is also a nice bonus. Small Silver Horde Spoons and white hutchies have been staples.

Halibut fishing has continued to be good. The boats are generally getting from 2-5 halibut per trip out to the bank. Most of the halibut are coming on anchor though it won’t be long before we are also bottom bouncing and trolling for halibut.

For anyone that still hasn’t booked your accommodation there isn’t much left so it would be good to check out Airbnb, HomeAway, and the Chamber of Commerce. We still have a few dates left in August blocked out for our Gold Packages, but it won’t be here long. You can check out www.ucluelet-info.com for accommodation and www.discovervancouverisland.com for other things to do around Vancouver Island.

Below are some photos from the past week.
