Port Renfrew Marina Report Oct.16/12

For Port Renfrew Marina another season has come to an end. All in all it was a good year with lots of springs just not many of the big ones over 40.  Nature made up for it by giving us all a spectacular Coho season. It came to an end basically last Friday. It would have gone on longer if the rain hadn't come and when it did, it was biblical! It started Friday night and kept on in rages until Sunday night.  We probably had 6 or 7 inches in those two days. The ramp going down to the cleaning area was flat. For the month before though we had fantastic Coho fishing with everyone coming back with their limits.  Now we are all hoping the salmon can manage to get up the rivers now that the rain has started. Now that the marina is closed we need all customers to be sure they have come and removed their units or boats unless prior arrangements were made. The gate will now be locked and getting in and out you will need the caretaker to assist you.  You should contact us to let us know what day you hope to collect your things.  Our number is 250 474-2643 and email is info@portrenfrewmarina.com .

Wayne and Gwen Coleman are still away staying by their son's bedside. There has been very little change in his condition. Our new caretaker is Desi Hatchard. Anyone who is interested in helping the Coleman's out with their expenses and or Clint's family can go to this site set up for Clint.   http://colemanfamilytrust.wordpress.com/.

It has been a great year with seeing long time return customers and getting to know our new ones. And with every year whatever the fishing is about, getting together and having fun and a few laughs is what makes a season so perfect. We look forward to seeing you and any new people next year for another fantastic year. We wish you all a safe and healthy winter.
