August 24 Port Renfrew Fishing Report

2 springs, 2 sockeye

Fishing this week is excellent in Port Renfrew!

Swiftsure Bank continues with its usual superb August fishing for spring salmon, coho salmon, and halibut.  Jolly Rogers Fishing Charters caught a 171 pound monster halibut for this week’s leader at the Port Renfrew Marina.

Closer to shore, the sockeye are in thick out in the tidelines (from 450-600 feet depths).  Most people are finding them from 40-90 feet deep, shallow early in the am, then deeper later am, and a slower bite in the afternoon.

The chinook salmon have been hot and cooler on the beach day to day, primarily in the Logan Creek to Walbran area.  The morning flood has had a good bite some days, with many boats catching spring salmon in the 20 pound range, and with some bigger fish in the 30s.

Trevor from No Bananas Fishing Charters reports Sunday that a run of big white chinooks are passing through.  He caught a 55 pounder and saw several others in the 40s caught.  That’s the second 55 pound salmon caught this week in Port Renfrew!   So, all going well, there may be some big fish photos coming soon.

If you’re interested in fishing the west coast of Vancouver Island, now is the time to get out there … your Tyee is out there waiting for you!
