Lots of Salmon, Halibut and Whales!

Canadian Princess Resort - July 21, 2014

The fishing continues to be excellent at the Canadian Princess Resort. We’re continually surprised by the number of salmon that keep showing up at the dock. The number seems to grow every day! There are a large amount of salmon around 25 lbs being caught, and plenty more 15-20 pounders.

Halibut fishing has also been strong. We had an especially large one caught just recently, estimated to be 65-75 lbs. Although we had to release it due to the size limits in place this year you can imagine it was quite a thrill for the lucky angler!

Our new Kingfisher continues to be the most popular boat on the dock. It’s been booked solid every day and continues to bring in large numbers of fish.

In addition to all the fish, we’re also spotting a good number of whales on our Nature Cruises. These majestic creatures are truly one of the most magical sights you can see out on the water, so don’t miss out!

If you haven’t visited us yet in 2014 there’s still time. We look forward to seeing you this year!

More Fish and More Sun! Does it Get Any Better?

Canadian Princess Resort - July 11, 2014

Hello again from the Canadian Princess. We hope you’re enjoying summer as much as we are! The salmon fishing in Ucluelet continues to be stellar with lots of nice salmon and halibut hitting the docks. Here’s a quick rundown of what’s been happening:

We’re seeing a really good number of Chinook (King) salmon being caught, and the Coho are starting to show up as well. Halibut fishing also continues to be awesome. The fish are steadily getting bigger, with two of the most notable catches including a 27 pound Chinook caught two days ago and a 52 pound halibut caught the day before that.

To see some of our best catches over the last week check out the slide show to the right!

Another bonus for anglers is the ability to retain one Wild Coho per day. These delicious fish are fierce fighters and always a blast to reel in, so get ready for even more fun out on the water this summer!

In addition to more fish we’re also looking forward to some fabulous weather. It’s supposed to be a hot summer, and the 7 day forecast is calling for sun all week. Nothing beats basking in the sun with a line in the water!

Make sure to check back in next week for another update from the Canadian Princess Resort. Until then, tight lines and keep on fishin’!

Great Fishing, Canada Day Party and More!

Canadian Princess Resort - July 3, 2014

Wow, what a season so far! We’ve got a new boat, have caught lots of fish and have had loads of fun so far, and it’s still only early July! Here’s what we’ve been up to lately:

Fishing has been strong since we opened, but it’s starting to get even better. We’re seeing more big fish caught, with a 54.6 pound halibut brought to the docks last weekend. We also had a 26 pound salmon caught recently, as well as plenty of salmon over 20 pounds. The new Kingfisher 2825 continues to be a hit with guests. They’re catching lots of fish on the new boat while enjoying the increased space, covered cabin and the onboard washroom.

We’ve been doing more than just fishing though! To celebrate Canada Day we threw a party on deck of the Canadian Princess. We had live music from the Ballistic Pigs, a BBQ in the parking lot, as well as road hockey and face painting. Everyone had a great time and we look forward to throwing another awesome Canada Day celebration next year!

The fishing season is in full swing now and we can’t wait to see what the rest of summer brings us. Stay tuned for more updates from the Canadian Princess Resort!
