Reports from Port Renfrew Marina are that weekend fishing was super. Over twenty salmon above 30 pounds were caught over the weekend, including three in the 40s. One report said there was a non-stop bite at Logan Creek from noon to 2 pm.
Desi Hatcher won the Davey Derby, with the largest spring salmon at 41.7 pounds and largest halibut at 70 lbs. A 47 pound salmon was caught later in the afternoon, but too late to weigh in. Visit the Marina’s website in the next few days for an updated report with pictures.
Sockeye fishing is open in Port Renfrew waters, max 4 per license per day.
Chinook fishing is closed inside the Harbour, although East Point remains open: “Effective 00:01 hrs July 15 to 23:59 hrs October 25 in of Subareas 20-1 and 20-2 inside or northerly of a line from Owen Point to the Port San Juan Light and Whistle Buoy then to Woods Nose, you may NOT RETAIN chinook.”
Looks like the big ones have arrived, time to get to Port Renfrew for prime Vancouver Island fishing!
