May 18/11 Port Renfrew Marina Report

Vicious Fish springsVicious Fish springs

Chinook fishing at Port Renfrew Marina is very good to the west of Carmanah lighthouse. Limit catches of fish in the 15 to 20 pound range have been quite common. Small hoochies and spoons right on the bottom is what is working best.

Closer to the bay fishing is fair with short bit times through the day. Again close to the bottom in 80 to 90 feet of water with the needle-fish type lures.

Halibut fishing is very good. All the usual anchoring spots are producing very well. A surprising note: Halibut are being caught right inside the bay with one boat landing three and losing one last weekend.

Crabbing is still good with many large and more full bodied ones around. It should stay this way until the end of June hopefully.

Note: sorry the pictures of the large halibut weren’t forwarded on to us so no pics as yet.

News: Port Renfrew is entered in the WFN Ultimate Fishing Town contest. In the first round we came in 3rd overall in Canada and 1st in western Canada! We did well but with the second round we struggled with a few setbacks. The town went 2 days without power or internet service so we fell to 5th but are now in 4th place. Unfortunately 4th does not count in the three winning spots BUT WFN is giving out subsidiary prizes to the top 20 towns running and so we are asking anyone who can to keep voting for Port Renfrew and help it out with the recognition it deserves and maybe get the hatchery some much needed monies.
