May 23, Port Renfrew Marina Report

Port Renfrew Marina has become very busy with old and new customers coming in to set up and start the new season. If you are a seasonal customer from last year and you haven't yet contacted us regarding holding your site you should do so asap! We have had an unprecedented amount of new people asking about seasonal spots so don't delay if you want your site.

A few Chinook salmon showed up on the May long weekend. The first ones of the season. Wally Browse was the first to bring one in at 16 pounds. Eric Eckdahl got 3 between 15 and 20 pounds. The Halibut fishing is still going strong with most everyone getting their limits even with the rough weather we had last week. Mike Johns of came in with a 93 pounder and Dwayne Isaacs caught a 169. Desi Hatcher of has been bringing them in consistently, a few of them in the 150 pound range.

Port Renfrew Marina will be getting car gas in the next week or so. Boat gas is available now. For anyone coming to the Marina, please remember that we only take cash. We will be getting an ATM machine in the office in June and we hope that will help out our customers.
