THE BEST TIME TO BE FISHING
is always right now.
Welcome to Morning Magic Sportfishing
located here in beautiful
Ucluelet BC on Vancouver Island.
Ucluelet has become of the most sought after "Hot Spots" for choosing a Salmon and Halibut Sportfishing destination along the BC Coast.
With our amazing location on the edge of the Pacific Rim National park we are fortunate to have over 100 different river systems of fish cruising right passed our front door on the migration route back to their respective rivers.

Good salmon fishing starts about mid May, and will continue until the end of September. We will be concentrating on Chinook salmon both locally, and in offshore waters for the month's of June, July and August.
Coho fishing generally starts mid June when they start to show in numbers. Not very big at this time anywhere from 3 to 7 lbs and as the season progresses they only get bigger.
The ubiquitous Halibut is both migratory and a resident species. Halibut fishing in Ucluelet has become very popular in the last 10-12 years or so. Reason being is that our success rate is excellent (aprox. 95% of my customers tagged out), and also the abundance of fish in the massive ocean they live in.
Offshore fishing is definitely for the adventurist. The action is quick and exciting, and the success rate is outstanding. I am very confident that upon our arrival back at the dock, you have participated in some of the best offshore fishing that the West Coast has to offer.
