Merry Christmas from FishingPortRenfrew!

No fishing reports to pass along from Port Renfrew this week, though we hear John from Hindsight Fishing Charters might be giving it a shot this week … so hopefully some fishing info coming soon.

Just for fun, below are some images of a west coast Boxing Day … the rain and wind held off for a few minutes for a nice seaside hike.  And the squall arrived just as we got back to the car.  Nice!

Happy holidays!

Redd Evening

Not much fishing to report in Port Renfrew.  People are mostly hunkered down for winter, keeping the woodstove hot and trying to stay dry.

For the Fishing Port Renfrew website, we’ve now added a Facebook page — come check us out online, share your fishing stories and photos! 

On a fun note, we came across some interesting West Coast Vancouver Island art that we thought we’d share.  Suzanne Jensen lives in East Sooke, and has an excellent eye for classic west coast images, both salmon and landscapes.  Below are some images from her portfolio website.  Send Suzanne an email to find out how you might hang one of these beauties on your wall.

Port Renfrew Fishing Video: Devonian Fishing Charters

Wednesday, December 1st, 2010

A salmon and halibut fishing day last summer with Devonian Fishing Charters, out of Port Renfrew BC, on Vancouver Island’s south-west coast. Captain John Lum guided us into sockeye, coho, and chinook salmon in the morning. In the afternoon, we headed out to Swiftsure Bank for halibut fishing and more salmon. A super fun day of Vancouver Island fishing!
