Fishing Report August 19, 2020 Ucluelet BC

This is the time of year many people wait for, especially these past few years. This year we are expected to get 80,000 Chinook up into Barclay Sound. Even half that number is good but this year the expectations are similar to last year. So far fishing has been good and some bites have been outstanding.  The fishing spots are slightly different than last year but the good news is there are lots of Chinook here and the average size fish is higher than normal. We have caught few Chinook under 15lbs and lots in the high teens and low twenties. There have not been many over 30 taken but we are happy with strong numbers that have been going through. 

Halibut fishing has been reasonably good at Big Bank. The black cod moved in for a few days which made things a bit tougher but the last few trips have been decent. Below are some pics for the past coulple weeks. We also post on FB and IG @salmoneyecharters on a regular basis.
