Fishing Report Ucluelet B.C. July 31, 2016
Most of the larger Chinook are being taken at the Heisen Bank. For a couple days we had some strong NW winds that hindered us from getting out as far as we wanted. On the days we manage to get out there and fish, the bite has produced some good sized fish including a few over 30lbs. We have also been fishing some of the inshore areas for larger Chinook, though the action has not been as fast as the offshore areas. The Barkley Sound run should be coming through soon and we should see them moving in close to shore.
Big Bank has slowed down for salmon, but halibut fishing has been good there. Since it is a long ways from the Heisen bank we have mostly been catching Chinook there. There are some spots close by for anchoring halibut and some of the days have produced good catches.
Below are some pics 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 www.tofino-info.com.
