Port Renfrew Marina Report July 4/13

For Port  Renfrew Marina fishing has really improved over the last week. All along the shore catch rates have been climbing. Camper, the Rock Pile and Logan Creek seem to be the most popular spots. Anchovies trolled at 30 to 40 feet is a pretty good choice. Coho killers are a good choice as they are good for springs also, not just Coho. Offshore the "chicken ranch" is still the hot spot for halibut, Chinook and Coho. Spoons and hoochies would be the lures of shcoice out there.

Crabbing is still pretty good, the commercial boats took their toll on the quantity you will find but the quality of them is perfect, sweet and hard.

Notable catches:

  • Wayne Winters  42
  • Jerry Shannon   36
  • Jeff metcalf   35
  • Wayne Winters  43
  • Ray Hamilton  30

Here are two pics since one  cut off Wayne's head and the other cut off the salmon's head!

FYI: If you have tried to reach the marina lately and found there was no answer, it's because the phones and Internet  were down for 24 hours. We apologize for this nuisance and had it corrected as soon as we became aware of it. This does happen from time to time so if you do have issues reaching us this may be the reason.More FYI: As Port Renfrew Marina is a cash business we ask our customers to please try and come with cash for purchases, we have a constant problem with having enough coin and small bills and with no bank in town it can be difficult. So if you don't mind please try and bring some coin and smaller bills if possible.  Thank you!!

Upcoming Event:  The annual Davey Derby is coming up soon! It is July 26 th to the 28th and is a great derby. You know it's summer when the derbies start coming around. This year there will be a children's bullhead derby for 12 and under so the little ones can join in with the fun.  The prizes are more amazing every year so come and participate, have fun and know you have contributed to a great cause at the same time.
