August 16 Port Renfrew Fishing Report

Happy crew with Jolly Rogers Fishing Charters

The fishing in Port Renfrew this week has ranged from good to excellent.

Swiftsure Bank remains hot, with tons of fishing action for spring salmon, coho salmon, and halibut.  A good day out there is hard to beat.

Closer in to shore, sockeye fishing remains open for now, and anglers are reporting easy limits in the deep water off Camper Creek, 400-600 feet.  A flasher, short leader, and a pink or red squirt is the ticket, slower troll at 30-80 feet. And when you get into a school, you can expect double, triple, or quadruple headers. They like lots of flash, so get as many rods in the water as you dare!  Super chaotic fishing, super fun.

The Beach has been on and off for the last couple of weeks.  But even on the slow days, there’s still big king salmon being weighed in at Port Renfrew Marina.  Today they reported the fishing has gotten hot again too, with lots of big chinooks coming in. As well, they reported halibut fishing is expected to continue to be good this week, with nices tides coming.

All in all, lots of fun to be had, it’s prime time for Port Renfrew fishing!
