At Port Renfrew Marina fishing has really picked up this week. Chinook are plentiful from Owen Point west with hole-in-the-wall and Nitinat being the hot spot. Spoons right at the sandy bottom are producing limit catches of salmon in the fifteen to twenty five pound range. Halibut fishing is still very good with boats on the anchor getting the bigger ones. The weather has been good, permitting the boats to get to all the good spots to the west.
Crabbing, as usual, is still excellent. So many and so sweet! There is nothing in the world like Dungeness crab!! The only disappointing part is seeing a trap full and having to toss back the amount that goes beyond legal limits!
For all you daily launchers, Port Renfrew Marina wants to let you know that if you arrive in the early morning hours to go fishing you can drop off your launch fee at the office door where we have the envelopes available. The launch fee is $11.00 that includes the GST. Thank you.

You must call us ASAP. Port Renfrew Marina is asking all our customers who have power to please use it carefully and with caution. Hydro is costly and to avoid any increases we ask everyone to use it with thought and consideration.
