Port Renfrew Marina Report May 11/12

Friday, May 11th, 2012

Port Renfrew Marina has been open now for almost two weeks and it is now the deadline for any past seasonal customers to contact us regarding their site. IF you haven’t you must do so immediately or risk losing it.

Salmon fishing has been good but no big ones coming in. They seem to be in the 10 to 14 pound range. Halibut fishing is very good as it usually in the early part of the season and crabbing has picked up.

The ATM in the office is now working and should be good to go for the season. Sorry to say that the user fee had to be raised.  Power at the marina has gone up also due to huge cost increases over the last two years.

Lets hope that this year brings warm weather, gentle seas and great fishing for all.

Port Renfrew Marina Report May.2/12

Wednesday, May 2nd, 2012

Port Renfrew Marina is now open for the season. We got off to our usual start with phone, internet and ATM issues! It just wouldn’t be the new year without those!! The phones seem to be ok, there is a long delay and occasional breaking up though. The ATM is in the process of being fixed and will likely be up and running very soon, likely in a day or so. We apologize for the inconveniences these things cause our customers and others just trying to make inquiries.

Fishing at Port Renfrew is coming on, there are springs being caught but they are on the small side, 8 to 14 pounds. They have been caught mostly near Owen Point. Halibut fishing has been very good with limit catches and some on the bigger side, rough weather has been a bit of a problem some days. Crabbing is still quiet, should improve soon. The picture below is of Desi Hatchard of as mentioned in the last report of the 160 halibut (and others).

We have many new people asking and we want to give our old customers first chance to keep their spots. You can email us through the website or call 250 483-1878 to let us know.

For any new customers a reminder to them and all that we are a cash only business so please come prepared. You can use our ATM machine to access cash if needed. We now have bait, tackle, fuel and ice at the marina. If you have any questions please feel free to contact us and we will do our best to answer what we can.
