From June 20 till Sept.10 we fish the abundant waters of the Pacific Rim out of Ucluelet British Columbia for salmon and halibut. There are both offshore and inshore fishing opportunities here.
Offshore fishing is very exciting and fast paced. We head out to different offshore banks where huge schools of bait are feeding on the rich plankton caused by these offshore banks and currents. This in turn attracts schools of migrating salmon to feed. We will head out from 3 to 20 miles to fish for these migrating salmon. We will also stop at a few halibut holes to pick up these great eating fish. Success rates are excellent for both salmon and halibut.
Chinook (Kings, Springs) average 12 - 35lbs, Coho(silvers) 7 - 15lbs, and Halibut 20 - 40lbs.
We also fish the protected waters of Barkley Sound. In August big Chinooks start to gather in Barkley Sound working their way back to their home rivers to spawn.
While your catching your trophy salmon, don't forget to enjoy the breathtaking scenery and wildlife, including whales, sea lions, seals, eagles, and ospreys.
When your day is done your guide will clean and process your catch for you. Then you can go back to your awesome condo at Avia West and kick back and watch more wildlife from the deck of your condo.
It all adds up to a spectacular trip you'll never forget.
