After a festive Ukee Days weekend, the air seems quieter here in town but the fish are still biting. The last few days have given us plenty of fish to brag about down here at the Princess. Mr. Rick Allan claimed catch of the day yesterday with a beautiful 24.4 lb. Chinook and long-time returning fisherman Uncle Jack caught a lingcod weighing in at over 28 lbs. Fish on!

As the month is nearing its end, the Ucluelet Salmon Ladder Derby will be giving away cash prizes of $5000, $2000 and $1000 away for the top three fish of July. Right now the weight to beat for first place this month is a 36 lbs. 12 oz. fish that was caught on July 18th. Furthermore, the top 15 fish on the ladder for July will be invited back to the fish-off in September. It’s time to get those derby tickets folks and get out there fishing!
