Ucluelet is one of our favorite places to go fishing on Vancouver Island for Salmon and Halibut. There are so many options at this magical West Coast adventure destination. The coast line is spectacular, rugged and wild. It feels remote yet you have access to the beautiful quaint town of Ucluelet and Tofino. This is a tourist paradise and people come from all over the world to experience this area and not only for the fishing. That being said for us this place is all about the fishing. It has the huge area of Barkley Sound which provides many option for protected water fishing with a great run of Chinook Salmon every year to the Robertson Creek Fish Hatchery. Right outside the harbor you also have the West coast shoreline to fish between Ucluelet and Tofino. Not to mention Millions of salmon returning to southern rivers in Canada and the USA which pass by all season long. If you have flat weather or a more open ocean worthy boat this area is also covered with a huge underwater bank from 4 miles to 25+ miles off shore which hold large schools of salmon and bottom fish including halibut. In this video you will see several places that we like to fish within minutes of the dock and up to an hour away. For every angler and every style of boat there is an option for you out in Ucluelet. If you don't have a boat there are many guided fishing adventures that I am sure would love to have you as their guest on an adventure of your life time.

HERE IS NEXT VIDEO -

This was our first day jigging on Big Bank. It was dead calm and the action was pretty fast and furious for salmon and halibut. We were catching the halibut on spreader bars with hootchies and pink salmon belly. For the salmon they were hitting Buzz Bombs and Zzingers. Fishing in about 200 to 230 fow. The aquatic life out on the banks is just unreal. Very impressive to be out there on such a calm day fishing with my Dad and Brother.

The ocean does not get any better than that. My wife and I took a vacation to Vancouver Is. and drove across and made a right to Tofino, didn't get to Uculet or fish, but from your video I wish I did. The west coast of Vancouver Is. is scenic.
