Seasons change, and so do the fish.
Here's what to expect year-round in the Ucluelet area:
February, March, and April - Fishing provide scenic inshore adventure on the waters of Barkley Sound. You'll be fishing winter Chinook (8-18 pounds) amongst frolicking gray whales, sea lions, and soaring eagles! An abundance of rockfish and lingcod have accumulated over the winter and 50+ pound halibut have begun their inshore migration.
May and June are the months to venture offshore, stalking chinook to 20+ pounds and halibut averaging 20 pounds - unless you're surprised by a "leviathan" hundred-pounder! Coho appear during this period, and continue their run into September and October.
July and August are red-hot months for salmon, and continue to provide excellent halibut adventures. This is when we see the runs of mature Chinook, with fish averaging 25 pounds and possible "Walter Class" encounters of 50+ pounds.
September is the best month to avoid crowds and enjoy the remaining runs of mature Chinook and Coho. Some of the biggest Chinook and Coho (15+ pounds) can be caught at this time. Halibut continue to offer opportunities.
October to January can bring stormy weather. But there are still winter Chinook to be found. So if you're the rugged type, or you can't manage a getaway any other time of year, we're open for business!
