Spring - Fishing Ucluelet Salmon & HalibutUcluelet offshore waters are teaming with aggressively feeding Chinook on Vancouver Islands west coast during the months of April, May and Early June
Abundant feeding Chinook spend months in the Ucluelet area on one of the most prolific early season fishing grounds on the BC’s coastline. Commercial fishermen for nearly a hundred years have made their livelihoods on these same productive waters.
These Chinook are from a variety of abundant systems and are in their “teen” years, mostly two and three year olds with the occasional mature “brute” mixed in. These early big fish are likely mature early run Columbia Chinook. Catching the limits is the norm here and it can happen quickly.
The Ucluelet area is also known during these months as the “Chicken Halibut Capital”. These fish are 15 – 25 pounds are can be thick at times.
