September 28 Port Renfrew Fishing Report

Fishing in Port Renfrew has slowed down considerably....either the season is winding down, or those coho are out there waiting, and we haven't seen them yet.

The Springs appear to have moved on, so the focus now is on coho. This weekend was Port Renfrew Marina's Coho Derby. Over 400 entrants at $20 a rod, meant an approximately $9000 winner-take-all prize. The fishing was slow, not a lot of fish came in, but a 20.5 pounder caught on Saturday was the winning fish. The winning fisherman was Darcy Williamson , who is a lucky fella indeed -- he won the $13,700 prize back in 2005, fishing in the same boat. Pretty sure Darcy will have some offers for crew next year.

Here's a picture of Mark aka "Nitnat Junkie" with his son Zakk and a nice coho...thumb's up for sure, Zakk!

Out at Swiftsure Bank, there are still both halibut and salmon being caught. On Friday and Saturday, Jolly Rogers caught some "chicken" halibut, feeder springs, and mid-size coho (up to 15 pounds). If you do head out there, though, keep an eye on Port Renfrew weather, because the seas can start getting nasty this time of year. Still...sunny and calm last few days, so get out there while you can!

Have fun, fish safe.
