September 6 Port Renfrew Fishing Report

James Boshier from Vancouver sent in this Swiftsure Bank report from last weekend, along with pictures: "Pretty bumpy out there at the start, 5-6ft swell with low interval, some steep waves. Glassier as day progressed, bumpy again late afternoon when west wind picked up. We caught five smaller chicken halibut, had to work a bit for them. We caught a nice ling cod, plus some snapper. Trolled deep and caught a couple of feeder springs. We fished Logan Creek and Camper Creek briefly on the way in, but no bites. Two dungeness keepers in the trap. All in all a really fun day!"

Mike from Heavy Hauler Fishing reports this week: "The halibut out at the banks is slowing down as the fish seem to be moving on. So I decided to throw down the anchor closer to shore and caught a bunch of halibut, 92, 65, 50, 35 and 25 lbs, lots of fun. Salmon fishing has been spotty but hopefully the Harrison run will show up soon."

Port Renfrew Marina
's annual Chinook derby was a success last weekend, with 272 tickets sold and $4500 raised for local salmon enhancement. Ron Jakimchuk won with a 35.2 pounder. The Marina reports a 17 lb coho was caught ... hopefully the start of a good late Port Renfrew coho season! The Marina's coho derby is Sept 27-28 this year, $20 entry fee, winner take all.

Good luck out there!
