Port Renfrew Fishing Report, Oct 6

The coho fishing has been very good in Port Renfrew this week, with reports of lots of 14-18 pound coho, and up to 20 or more fish played in a day for boats.  One fellow caught a 24 pound coho in 10 feet of water right at the San Juan river entrance, in an 8 foot rowboat — that’s fun fishing!

Jolly Rogers Fishing Charters had a good day right out front of the bell buoy, with steady action in the am, catching 7 coho from 7-17 pounds. Most of the hits were in 450ft depth, shallow (35-40), and on bait. More hatcheries than wild, which is unusual lately.

Port Renfrew Marina‘s coho derby was a big success, with 400 entrants, $8000 winner take all prize, and $2000 to salmon enhancement.  Brent Eliason won it all with a21 pound 1 ounce beauty.  The Marina reports baitrix has been the hot lure, with hoochies, bait and spoons on short leaders also producing.  The Marina is closing for the season Oct. 11.

Halibut fishing for recreational anglers is closing on Oct. 18th as well.  Seems things are winding down for another year!   Though not really yet, because the coho fishing is excellent and halibut too….so if you have a chance to get out there for the last few days of the season, it will be probably be worth your while.

Have fun out there!
