At Port Renfrew Marina Coho fishing slowed after last weekend as we had a ton of rain just before the weekend. With this week of nice weather fishing will hopefully improve as fish hold, waiting for the next rain. A big San Juan Coho will probably win the derby so the bay and river mouths will be a great place to fish for the one.
Bait still seems to be the best. If you can find some herring strip or cut your own that may be the ticket as it has always been the “go to” Coho bait. Spoons and hoochies in some green or yellow shades on short leaders are another choice. Coho killers are always popular.

Port Renfrew Marina’s annual Coho Derby “Winner Take All” is coming up this weekend. This derby is really popular with all fishermen. The tickets are available only at the marina office and are $25.00 a rod with $5.00 of every ticket going to salmon enhancement. There is only one winner and the cash pot will go to him or her, the amount dependent on the number of entrants.
