Late Season Fishing Still Excellent

Canadian Princess Resort - August 27, 2014

Looking to do some fishing before the end of the season? Then you’re in luck! As the summer winds down at the Canadian Princess the fishing keeps winding up!

Coho are here in good numbers with several of the larger “Northern” Coho coming back to the dock in double digits. Chinook numbers are strong and the “20lb smileys” are hanging on scale on a consistent basis. We are looking forward to the strong finish right through the end of September and we plan on taking full advantage of increased Coho retention limits set to come into effect September 1st.

Our new Kingfisher had a stellar day last weekend, with 4 Springs and 8 Coho brought to the boat. We’re looking forward to cruising the beaches for the late season Tyees so the “Tyee Princess” can start earning her new name!

We hope to see you out on the water before the season is over!


A Great Week of Fishing in Ucluelet!

Canadian Princess Resort - August 15, 2014

All of our boats and guides have been rockin’ it lately, with lots of fish hitting the docks over the last few days. Here are some of the highlights:

The Raven Princess had a great day yesterday, pulling in just shy of 50 salmon, with most of them weighing in the mid-teens.

The Salmon Princess also had a great day. The crew conducted a seminar on how to latch on to halibut, with eight guests landing five on just one drift!

As for the Coho Princess , she delivered the catch of the day with a 17 ¾ lb spring just edging out two other fish caught on the boat by a half pound.

Bottom Fishing

The bottom fishing has also been great all year, with the large lingcod and plenty of rock cod coming back to the docks on a daily basis. The 2:30-6:30 bottom fishing trip is a great way to spend any afternoon on the West Coast!


Fishing is Awesome! Don't Miss Out!

Canadian Princess Resort - August 13, 2014

We’re almost halfway through August now. Have you been fishing yet? If not, you should! This is has been one of the best fishing seasons in the last 30 years, so don’t miss out on all the fun!

The fishing around the Canadian Princess Resort continues to be outstanding, with strong numbers both inside at South Bank, and outside at Big Bank. Spring and Coho in both of these areas are popping clips and grabbing jigs, with a 28 lb Salmon (pictured to the left) being caught over the weekend.

Bottom fishing has been nothing short of exceptional, with a weekend trip bringing back over 300 lbs of Lingcod, with many in the 20-30 lb range.
