Ucluelet Salmon and Halibut Fishing Report
May 2 2018

Get your Spring Fish Fix On!

2018 Fishing Outlook / Regulations:  Fishing as usual on West Coast Vancouver Island, similar to last years plans and regulations. Chinook, Coho, Halibut, Ling Cod all OPEN! Note: Yellow Eye Rockfish non-retention.

Update: May 7th: Little slower yesterday with the really big tides during the morning. Had to work hard to get the fish. Lings in the mix as well.  Tides are improving in the next few days and we expect the fishing to improve again.

Ucluelet is now fishing and it's producing some great catches in both quantity and quality!

Some nice fish in the teens.

With great conditions so early in the season, it's a good time to get your "Spring Fish Fix"!

Here is the list of available dates.

The limit of Chinook Salmon is 2 per day and 4 in possession away from your home.

Halibut is 1 per day and 2 in possession away from home.  Only 1 of the halibut in possession can be up to 115cm, the other halibut must be less than 83cm.  These are both quality fish.
