Port Renfrew report August 2nd

The fishing in Port Renfrew continues to be hot and cold. Over the weekend, the reports were that the Beach was quite slow, with few fish being caught. Though a 39 pounder was caught to win this year’s Davey Derby.  However, reports from Monday and Tuesday are the Beach has really heated up.  No Bananas Fishing Charters says “ the beach is on fire up here boys the last couple days and off shore is insane … these tides are great this week flood flood and more flood.“  Port Renfrew Marina’s report says much the same.

Offshore the reports are still outstanding … truly awesome fishing for halibut, spring salmon, and coho salmon.  Check out this report from Chris73 on the SportsfishingBCforum: “Great fishing offshore! Halis in short order then limit of springs – most mid teens some smaller ones that went back, two tyees also for our group. Springs were deep for us today – hooked several halis too while trolling deep for the springs. Then crazy coho action little away from the chicken ranch. More wild cohos but we managed our limits with nice hatch cohos – several ones well over 10 lbs. Lots of fun! And a whale grand slam for us: grey, humpback, orcas, porpoises.

That’s fun fishing!  If you do go offshore, make sure you are well prepared with all the safety gear and keep a close eye on the weather — reports from last week were that it was rougher than usual out there, not for the faint of heart or small boats!

Good luck out there and play safe.

PS there’s also a rumour of a sockeye salmon opening in Port Renfrew starting tomorrow (Tues).  Will keep you posted!
