Aug. 5th Port Renfrew Fishing Report

Port Renfrew Marina has lots of quality Chinook hitting the docks lately! It looks as though we are going to have a great August fishery. It started out hot and hasn't slowed down making everyone eager to get out there and find the big ones. On Sunday, Aug 5th there were 3 Springs over 40 pounds brought in.

Eastpoint, Camper, Cullite and Logan are all producing fish with at least two long bites a day, usually early morning and later in the afternoon. Depths are 25 to 40 feet on the down rigger with anchovies and 4 inch coyote spoons working best. Perfect tides this week should hold the fish close to shore.

Swiftsure Bank is still good for Halibut and smaller Chinook in the 12 to 20 pound range. Bank Springs are at a 170 to 200 foot depth with 5 and 6 inch plugs being the lure of choice by the guides.

Some Springs of notable size in the last 8 days are:

Braiden Hardie, (age 10) 39lb.
