July 16 Port Renfrew Marina Report

Well, it's been awhile since we have done a report and as we get busier the time gets ahead of us! Port Renfrew Marina is heating up with some Tyees hitting the docks. Some fish of size were Mary Dice with a 38, Bruce Miller of http://www.millertimefishingcharters.com/ coming in with many springs a 31, 40.5 and 42 and guide Ian of http://www.fishingvictoria.com/index.asp with a 42.5. So although things haven't heated up to their usual catches the springs are coming.

Pinks are starting to come on and the Coho fishing is spectacular with many boats catching 50 plus per trip. Both wild and hatchery are showing in huge numbers especially at Swiftsure Bank. Right now only hatchery are allowed for possession. Though most of the hatchery fish are only in the 4 to 5 pound range the non-stop action makes up for the small size. Coyote spoons seem to be the lure of choice.

Halibut fishing in Port Renfrew is amazing! Swiftsure bank is very hot and the weather has been fantastic with record calm flat seas. You can be fairly confident that most people fishing out there, especially the guides are getting their limits. George Lockwood and Joe Serpa teamed up to land a 92 pound Halibut to top the weeks catch board.

This year is looking to be one of our busiest ever, especially in Aug. We don't take reservations but we have expanded our camping area and if you are staying with us we will do everything in our power to find you a spot and help make your stay memorable.
