  1. Ucluelet Fishing Report - July 16th, 2019

    Saltwater General Discussion
    Fishing has been good overall with some really good bites mixed in. Both Coho and Chinook are being caught close to shore and offshore. The offshore restriction for Chinook was lifted starting yesterday (July 15) and the fishing didn’t disappoint. Both Chinook and Halibut were caught on Big...

    Saltwater Professional Reports
    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...
  3. Ucluelet Fishing Report - June 13th 2019

    Saltwater General Discussion
    Salmon fishing was fair this week. The fleet continues to work the area from Mears up to Austin island. Chinooks in the 5-7lb range have been plentiful many days with the odd tide of fish between 10-14lbs. Small spoons like the size 3 Maverick and cookies and creame have been the staples. Some...
  4. Ucluelet Fishing Report - June 2019

    Saltwater General Discussion
    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...

    Environmental, Fishing Politics & Fishery Updates
    My birthday is coming up and to reward myself for leaving fish where I have found them and also encouraging others to fish responsibly for many years, I will do something completely off the wall this year! Being a Libra and knowing that some of the best fishing can happen on dates around my...
  6. Surf Fishing Vancouver?

    Saltwater General Discussion
    Hey Guys: I was wondering, do any of you know where I can surf-fish around Vancouver nowadays? I can't find much of anything on the web save for some stuff on Van Island and I don't think that would be too relevant for the mainland (referring to the species of fish and etc). The second...

  8. Halibut Trip Recommendations

    Saltwater General Discussion
    My Dad has offered to take my son, brother and I on a halibut trip next spring. Not sure if spring is a good time. He is talking Alaska (Cook Inlet) for 3 fishing days or maybe someplace closer for a few extra days. I've (he either) never fished for halibut before, and am not sure we really need...

  10. West Coast

    Saltwater General Discussion
    Just got back from my first trip to Port Renfrew. I highly suggest a trip there for anyone who wants to hit the different types of salmon in one day. Had springs, coho, and also took some time to work the muscles hauling up halibut. Could have targeted sockeye also, but I have enough from local...
  11. Wtf???? Flossing?

    Saltwater General Discussion
    I'm disturbed... I just read some freshwater reports (god knows why). People are actually proud of the fact they "floss" the sox in the river. I know I'm new to the west coast but in my opinion this is intentionally foul hooking a fish, isn't it? Makes me sick to think of fathers teaching...
