For Port Renfrew Marina we can only do reports when we are between times up there so reports can be behind in information at times. Well... this is HOT off the press! One hour ago. Coho fishing is fantastic!! Limit catches for all and some big fish with 15 and 16 pound Coho's being brought in. Reports are that Steve Bryant brought in a 21 pounder! It has been years since we had one over 20 pounds. Looks like there will be lots this year. Things are looking good fishing wise now! There are still springs around in good numbers but with the Coho here, why bother? Nice to have the choice at this point and time.
The ongoing water line is nearing completion. It is looking like it will be in working order for next year as there have been delays and our season will soon be coming to an end.
Upcoming Event: Coming up on October 1st and 2nd Port Renfrew Marina will be having it's annual Coho Derby "Winner Take All." This derby is incredibly popular and people by the hundreds show up for the chance to win a large chunk of cash usually with winnings around the $10,000.00 mark. The entry fee is $25.00 a rod with $5.00 of each fee going to the local San Juan salmon hatchery in Port Renfrew. This derby should prove to be an interesting one since the Coho seen so far are proving to be the largest at this time in years. Come and make the most of the closing of the season in Renfrew, have a fun two day fishing trip for $25.00 and help the hatchery at the same time. Please be advised that we are a cash business so please bring cash for your expenses and tickets. We do have an ATM for your convenience.
