Ucluelet BC Saltwater Fishing Report

By Shawn Grant, Hot Pursuit Charters | Last updated: July 17th, 2020

With the province of BC starting to open back up from the COVID-19 lockdown we have been able to get back out on the water and adjusting to the "new normal" while adhering to provincial COVID-19 guidelines. 

Fishing has been very productive in Ucluelet BC this season. We have had good results for Chinook and Coho while fishing Wya Point and Florencia Bay.  There have been schools of squid bait in the area so we have had a chance to do some live bait mooching for salmon which is always exciting.  We have also been  trolling for Salmon at 45-60 ft. Anchovies have been working well but and lures of choice have been the Gibbs Skinny G No Bananas, Alligator needlefish Hoochies (aka The Bubba Special) along with the Pistachio Glow Hoochie. The fish we are seeing closer to shore have been quality high teen, 20lb+ and even some 30lbs being caught.

Halibut fishing has been great during the early season and the Lighthouse Bank has been a reliable location. We have also traveled out to Starfish and The Barn Yard with decent success at those locations as well.
