Port Renfrew Marina Report June 21/17

In Port Renfrew and Port Renfrew Marina there is little fishing pressure right now, as there are as few as four boats at Camper Creek during the week days. If you don't like crowds and having to work around other boats this time works for you. Spoons seem to be best for Chinook right now, 30' to 40' on the downrigger trolled fairly fast. Good news the salmon have arrived at the "Chicken Ranch." Easy limit catches are to be had if the weather lets you get out there. Future forecasts for the coming week or more seems better.

Halibut has slowed down, not sure if it is because of the longliner that has set gear out there for a month or the lack of good ebb tides.

Notable catches:

  • Ken Jamison     29
  • Randy Goertzen   31.5   17

VERY GOOD NEWS: We are very happy to say that the marina has completed the installation of the new underground power and it is now working. Most sites now have their own power post and water source.

Coming event:  Coming up on July 29th and 30th is the annual Kinsmen Salmon Derby. The tickets are now available at the marina and at Bucky's Sports in Duncan, Gord's Fly Box in Lk. Cowichan and Island Outfitters in Victoria. Tickets are $50.00 a rod. First prize is a Yamaha 9.9 kicker. Come out for a weekend of fishing and support a great group that helps out many needy causes.

PRM Labor Day Derby: Port Renfrew marina will be having the annual Labor Day Derby this year on Sept 2nd and 3rd. More details will be coming as the summer goes by.
