For Port Renfrew Marina another season will soon be upon us. We will be opening on May 1st just one month away. For those of you who have been away or not by the marina you will see more changes this year. Rex and Reid have been very busy, weather permitting, doing a lot of work at the marina. More electrical sites have been created with a few more to come hopefully. More areas have been leveled off and the area by the office has had the pilings replaced with a steel wall for a permanent solution to retain the bank. Also, soon you will see a new and updated version of Port Renfrew Marina's website. It is been revised and hopefully everyone will find it to be a better experience and easy to access information wanted. We are hoping it will be ready to launch in about a week or so. We believe people will find it to be a big improvement and long overdue. Please check out our rates page as there are a couple of changes.
For this year 2018, there are again some new regulations regarding fishing limits. Starting today, April 1st 2018 there is no retention of Yelloweye and descending devices are recommended. Halibut retention is 1 per day with possession of two. It is reduced from 133cm (head on) to 115cm (head on) while the second halibut for possession remains 83cm. Rock fish are 3 per day, only 1 can be China Rockfish or a Tiger Rockfish or a Quillback Rockfish. For more detailed information go to the DFO website: (Sorry, couldn't get the link to work)
For customers planning on coming out to the marina to check on their sites please call Reid Warren @ 250 483-1486 to be sure the gate is open for you. Please do not bring your units or boats in without previously made arrangements with Reid, Rex or Bud. We all look forward to seeing our returning customers and friends and also to meet our new customers and hope we all enjoy a great year of fishing and camping!
Bud & Rex
