May 15, Fishing in Port Renfrew Update

Monday, May 16th, 2011

Fishing in Port Renfrew has been reported to be pretty good this week.  The halibut are on average nice size, from 30-90 pounds, and are in the spots closer to San Juan Harbour.  Salmon is hit and miss depending on the day, but most days anglers are finding chinook salmon up to 20 pounds from Owen Point to the Rockpile — mostly fishing hootchies right near the bottom in 100 feet.  You don’t have to go far this time of year!   Crabbing in the bay is excellent, as it often is this time of year.

Jolly Rogers Fishing Charters sent in a couple of photos of salmon and halibut fishing action.

On another note, the WFN Ultimate Fishing Challenge is on and Port Renfrew has made the top 20 fishing towns in Canada!  Port Renfrew Marina calls it “the little town that could”, with just 400 people vying against much biggers towns and cities.  This would be a great thing for Port Renfrew, so they are asking for your help to make it happen.  With 14 days to go in the voting round, Port Renfrew is quite far behind the two towns in Ontario, but can still catch Port Hardy for 3rd place.  VOTE NOW!!!! And Vote Often!  Please help Port Renfrew get onto the Canadian fishing map.
