Guide at a Glance
Ucluelet, British Columbia, Canada
Full Day Salmon/Halibut combo trip
Fishing has always been a passion of mine since I was a young kid fishing bull heads in the tidal pools. Through time my fishing experiences evolved into summer jobs while going to the University of Victoria where I eventually received a degree in Geography and Environmental Studies.
I have been in the sportfishing industry for over 20 years now as a fishing guide. My fish guiding experience ranges up and down the British Columbia coast with several different lodges located in the Queen Charlottes, Knight Inlet and Bamfield area. My fishing resume also includes working as a guide for several winters in the tropics of Costa Rica located in Drake Bay on the pacific coast. My home is located in the small fishing village of Ucluelet, located on the westcoast of Vancouver Island, where I run my fishing charter company. WestCoast Fish Expeditions has been operating as a professional independent charter company in the Ucluelet and Barkley Sound area for over 18 years. During this time I have gained extensive knowledge of both inshore and offshore fisheries.
I skipper a 24 foot Grady White Offshore known as Westcoast Fish 1, which has been extensively customized to suit the fishing style and environment on the westcoast of Vancouver Island…come join me. – Matt Oly Olcen
