Great day in Port Renfrew

Sunday, August 18th, 2013
Curtis from Fishwestcoast Sportfishing Charters sent in a great day report from earlier in August:

RJ has a great day fishing in Port Renfrew

“This Port Renfrew day truly turned out to be one of the best charters I’ve ever been on.RJ had his first deep sea fishing adventure with and was rewarded with limits of Chinook Salmon up to 22 lbs and Halibut up to 38 lbs.The beach was on fire, between Logan and Walbran Creeks, for Salmon using anchovies in a red gold teaser head behind a gold betsy flasher in 60 ft of water and we had non stop action.  For the Halibut we were fishing the shelves off Caramanah Creek in 180 ft of water using Pink Salmon Bellies. Port Renfrew can provide a memorable fishing adventure for all levels of experience, contact one of the experienced guides and they can help accommodate all anglers to a trip of a lifetime.”

Attaboy RJ!

Screaming Reels Swiftsure Special

Darrin from adds his take on the fishing lately:  “Chinook salmon have been really good along the beach from east point and all the way to logan creek. As well as the coho and pink salmon. Swiftsure banks are still fishing strong with lots of whales breaching in and around our fishing grounds. Halibut are still biteing with an average size of 15-25 lbs”.

Now is a great time to visit Port Renfrew and get out on the water for a fishing adventure.

Cam stoked on a beauty port renfrew halibut

Blair from Swell Time Fishing gave this Port Renfrew Fishing Report for July 28th – August 4th: “Offshore fishing at Swiftsure Bank has been on fire! Beginning of the week there were tons of chinook with sizes ranging from 8 to 15 pounds, tons of coho, and calm waters. Chinook sizes have been progressively getting bigger, with some 30 pounders being caught offshore near the end of the week. Last week’s 5 pound cohos seem to be this week’s 7-8 pound cohos. Halibut fishing has been consistent all week, with calm weather making it easy and enjoyable; everybody has been tubbin’ out! Fishing on the beach has been good all week, climaxing on Sunday with chinook sizes reaching up to 40 pounds.”

Fantastic fishing……so head out to Port Renfrew, big fun ahead!
