Port Renfrew fishing update from Hindsight Fishing Charters:
It’s early in the season for both Halibut & Salmon but by the looks of the fishing it’s not.
The Salmon fishing on the beach has been good but lots of small fish. Feeders. If this wind would calm down for a day or two I could get out to the West and try for Salmon. I will be looking for the incoming migrating of the Columbia River Chinook over the next few weeks. If you want to find feeders just around Owen Point is a good bet fishing 70 ft. Remember the Underwater boilers or you will be leaving you leads behind. Top gear from Gibbs Delta Tackle this week has been Madi with the Coho Killer Irish Cream. Plus while anchored up We where jerk fishing with a Delta Tackle Jumbo Anchovie 10 oz. lost one nice Halibut on the trout rod plus put a nice dinner Chinook in the boat. I find the Green Glow in the Jumbo Anchovie works great for Halibut while the current is slack.
On the Halibut front, fishing is great. Down to the East you have great fishing off Jordan River. Sombrio has produced also over the last few weeks also.
The West is very good if you can get out between storms. We have been using Salmon belly, Large Herring with a Delta Grub
This time of year in Renfrew you need to pay attention to the weather. If coming up to Renny remember the Port Renfrew Marina is not open and we have no gas in town. The native ramp is open for launching.
