Ucluelet BC Saltwater Fishing Report

By Shawn Grant, Hot Pursuit Charters | Last updated: June 10th, 2019

Early season Ucluelet chinook salmon!

We have had great fishing in the Ucluelet area in the early season and we were fortunate that our Chinook fishery was not shut down by DFO. For Chinook salmon retention we do have a 1 mile offshore boundary and we must fish within until July 14th.

Salmon have been consistently showing up within our 1 mile boundary at Floerencia Bay, Red Can, Begg Island and Great Bear. They have also been showing up in the Barkley Sound from Austin Island down to Swale Rock.  We have had consistent results at depths of 70 – 100 ft and anchovies have been working well along with smaller spoons like the Skinny G No Bananas and the Maverick.  Plus there is the old standby needle fish Hoochies (aka The Patent Pending Bubba Special) that have been producing quality fish as well.

Halibut are showing up on the Inside and Outside Lighthouse Banks as well as the Longbeach area.  Using your favorite jig or bait should provoke some nice Hali action.
