Port Renfrew Marina Aug.14th Fishing Report

Port Renfrew Marina is seeing the great August fishing we have come to expect. Afternoon high tides and perfectly smooth seas have combined to produce great Halibut and Salmon catches.

Halibut masters Des Hatchard http://www.viciousfishcharters.com/ and Dwayne Isaac continue to stun us with their catches. Des brought in on one charter 6 Halibut 35, 45 ,55, 100, 110 and 112, also 5 Red Snapper all in the10 pound range. Dwayne came in with a 156 Halibut, a 74 and 2 others in the 50 pound range.
Other notable catches were Bill from Island Marble brought in a 75 and Matt Wylie with a 104 pounder.
Chinook fishing is right on track to be one of our best big fish years. We are almost at the 30 Springs over 40 pounds to date which will translate into a possible 60 over 40 pound by mid September.
