With the long weekend already upon us Port Renfrew Marina is starting to be an active place for fishing. For the past three weeks we have had all kinds of weather, from cold hard winds, heavy rain to light mist, full sun and very calm seas. In that time the marina has had great fishing results for halibut. Desi Hatchard of Vicious Fish Charters gets recognition for catching the first halibut over a 100 pounds two weeks ago and then last week a 110 pounder and many other mid size ones. (see picture in last report) Crabbing is amazing. They are large, hard shelled, sweet and in huge numbers.
Salmon fishing is on the rise. At Port Renfrew Marina we saw many springs come in around the 10 to 15 pound range and Sandy Fisher brought a 33 pounder in last week.
If you are a past seasonal please contact us as soon as possible regarding your site and moorage to see if it is still available. Spots are going fast.
Good news, the ATM is still working and it appears it will be fine this year. The pay phone is being repaired and should be up and running soon.
Port Renfrew Marina now has bait, tackle, ice, gas and diesel if anyone out there is unsure.
