Best Time to Fish


UCLUELET – Summer Months

May 1 to September 30 is considered prime time for salmon and halibut sports fishing here on the west coast of Vancouver Island. This is the time when the weather starts to cooperate and the salmon and halibut start moving through in large numbers. Ucluelets’ location allows us to fish for salmon and halibut on the offshore banks, shoreline points and bays, and the protected islands of Barkley Sound, just minutes away from Ucluelet harbour.

Large concentrations of chinook salmon, coho salmon and halibut begin to migrate and feed in both inshore and offshore areas near Ucluelet, following thick balls of bait such as herring, pilchards(sardines), needlefish, squid, and krill. All ages of salmon and halibut are in the area, making the bite hard to keep up with at times. Ucluelet has the most consistent and dependable fishing on the B.C. coast throughout this time period for chinook salmon, coho salmon and halibut.
