Fishing Report Ucluelet BC August 13, 2016

The run we have been waiting for is finally here and it has started earlier than expected! That maybe shouldn’t be a surprise considering it is supposed to be the biggest Barkley Sound run in 20 years. Most of the fish we have been getting in close to shore now have been over 20lbs, which is what we expected with such a large number of 4-year fish returning through the inshore. One of the bonuses is that you don’t have to travel very far.


The fishery along the shoreline should continue to be good during the next 3-4 weeks. The Rat’s Nose at Big Bank has been producing good numbers of Chinook and some days there are some large fish mixed in with the smaller feeders. Halibut are being trolled up at Northwest corner. The bait has moved on around South Bank and the fish have been biting well there, providing some decent days in the area.

Below are some pictures we have taken since the last report. Make sure you have liked our Facebook page to see pictures as they come in! If you want to find some other things to do in the area make sure you check out
