    Salmon fishing started slowly this week with the odd productive tide at the red can. Fish from 6-15lbs were taken on small spoons from 90-120 feet. To the applause of anglers, a new wave of chinooks arrived on the south side of Barkley Sound in time for the weekend. The fleets from Ucluelet...

    I've fished Ukee a fair amount, but I'm still learning. I only have a 19 foot boat and I'm reluctant to fish Big Bank which is 25 miles or more from Ukee, a long run back if the north wind comes up. Mostly I've fished inside South Bank, the Spade area, also called the Turtleshead, from what...
