Port Renfrew fishing update April 8

There are limited fishing reports to pass along for Port Renfrew this week. The Marina is closed until May 1, so there is limited ocean access. You can put your boat in at the Pacheedaht ramp in the river, just be VERY CAREFUL about the currents, as the river is flowing pretty strong and you can get your boat pulled up onto the rocks. As well, be cautious about breakers in the river mouth … if there’s a solid west swell running, that could end a fishing day in a hurry … a wet, cold, dangerous, and expensive end!

For the few that have got out there, the report is that the crabbing is excellent, there are feeder salmon out front, and you don’t have to go too far for halibut. Sombrio remains a hot spot … whether the long run west from Sooke or the shorter run east from Port Renfrew.

In other news, the WFN “Ultimate Fishing Town” contest has closed the nomination round and it appears Port Renfrew led the nomination with 145.  Honey Harbour Ont was next at118.   Pretty good showing for this fishy little west coast village!  Voting starts on Tuesday April 12th — each email address can vote 4 times a day (every 6 hours), so vote it up if you want Port Renfrew to win.  If Port Renfrew makes the cut, the final round of voting starts May 10.
