Ucluelet Fishing ReportBy Morning Magic,
Fishing off Ucluelet is really starting to pick up. Lots of chinooks starting to show up in numbers along the beach right down to the mouth of the harbour.
Squid and Needlefish are tight to shore with the cooler water drawing the chinooks closer to the beach. Most of these fish are 12 to 20 lbs with the odd one in the low to mid 20's and are a gorgeous bright orange meat almost like a sockeye, very healthy fish.
Not only good fishing along the beach but Big Bank has now kicked in giving us another option.
Lots and lots of bait out there, mostly good size herring and even seen a few humpback whales gorging on the bait, been a while since I've seen that, so this is great to see.
Limits of nice chinooks averaging 10 to 17lbs with a few in the 20's. Coho showing up in numbers as well and your usual big bank chickens dragging up from the mud. Bigger halibut are out there if you put in your time either on the drift or anchored up.
It's just like the days of old out there where your having non stop action, as we say on the West Coast when fishing offshore "put on the sweat band it's going to be busy".
Not even in July and the season is really starting to shape up along with the weather as we've been experiencing calm seas of late and hopefully this will continue and only get better.
Tight lines and be safe out there.
