Oct.04/10 Port Renfrew Marina Fishing Report

At Port Renfrew Marina Coho fishing has been fantastic for the past 10 days or so. Many boats are reporting 15 to 20 hookups in only a few hours. Nice size fish with many in the 14 to 18 pound range.
Baitrix in strips and anchovy have been on fire! Hoochies, bait and spoons on short leaders are also producing.

The Coho Derby for 2010 was a big success with a great turnout of many fishermen who were happy to see $5.00 of the entry fee go towards the hatchery. This year we had calm seas, sunny mild weather and lots of fish to make a GREAT derby and many happy smiling faces.  We had four hundred entrants bringing in $10,000.00, with $8,000.00 going to the winning pot and $2,000.00 going to the San Juan hatchery.  This years winner was Brent Eliason who weighed in a 21 pound 1 ounce Coho early on Sat and it held up for the rest of the derby. We had many others come in in the 18's, 19's and a 20.1  pounder brought in by John Holman.
