Zeballos BC Fishing Report

By Adrian O'Connor, Reel Obsession | Last updated: June 8th, 2017

Zeballos salmon and halibut fishing

What a great start to the season ! The weather was great allowing us to get offshore to the fish every day.

Salmon fishing is excellent with most of our fish being caught at the outside corner of the highway. We had our first Tyee of the year caught by angler Lance Ruffel from Omaha. Guide Troy put him into this fish down 170 feet down, caught on a green glow flasher with matching teaser head and herring. Jelly fish hoochies and Skinny G no bananas color spoons have also been catching fish. Flasher colors of glow green, and purple glow have been top producers.Most fish at the high way are being caught from 100-1800 feet. First thing in the morning the fish have been in the shallower part of the water column and dropping down as the day goes on.

Halibut fishing is excellent as well. In the picture below my first day started with a 64,60 and 45 pound fish for my 3 guests. Mackerel and sardines have been the top baits. Salmon bellies are working as well, but the dog fish tend to zone in on them more than the other. The halibut bite has definitely been around the tide change. Smaller fish are biting off the tide, but the larger fish are definitely being caught in the hour or so around the slack water.

Give me a call or drop me a line anytime to discuss this world class fishery.I have one boat available June 15-17. Call me to get a great fathers day special rate.
