July 18/10 Port Renfrew Marina Report

Port Renfrew Marina fishing has been slow for the past week. A large storm on Monday and Tuesday of last week and almost 0 foot tides in the morning didn't help the catches at all. Along the inshore coast the fish coming in were caught later in the day on a flooding tide. Offshore the salmon fsihing for both Chinook abd Coho has been very good but the sea conditions have been terrible with some long time guides commenting on it being "the worst they've seen." Conditions will be good this week with calmer seas and much better tides. We have seen improvement already with the fishing picking up on Friday.

Halibut fishing is still very good with drifting at various locations being productive for bigger than average catches. Crabbing is remaing good for this late date, a nice bonus for this season.

Notable catches:

  • Ken Gillard     30  30
  • David Cowie         36
  • Marion Randall   32
  • Tony Hodgson     34
  • Harvey Wood       100 halibut
