Dan Burkmar 30 pound salmon, Camper Creek

Reports out of Port Renfrew this weekend are that the fishing is really picking up!

Mike and Dan Burkmar sent in this photo of a 30 pound chinook salmon caught off Camper Creek this weekend … that’s Dan with the Tyee…way to go!

Steve from SeaWind Fishing Charters had 4 days in a row last week.  He said the halibut fishing was slow for a couple of days until they found them, then they couldn’t keep them off.  He caught and released a whole bunch until they got their limit of 30-50 pounders. He also reported very good salmon fishing action between Logan Creek and the Rockpile, lots of scrappy 20-25 pound spring salmon.  His guests from Germany had never seen fishing so good, left with HUGE smiles on their faces.  Unfortunately, they missed the humpback whale show the next day — Steve estimates 30 whales, absolutely incredible.

Vicious Fish Charters....some more happy guests

Des from Vicious Fish Charters had a few good days too, in much the same spots, some fun days for salmon and halibut.

Things are definitely heating up … hopefully a good sign for the summer ahead!

110 pound halibut!

Randy from RT Construction with some nice halibut

A couple early season reports from the fishing guides in Port Renfrew.

Kevin McKenna Sport Fishing: out with Randy from RT construction. The rods buckled over at the same time, a double header off Sombrio Beach … and another happy guest! Kevin reports Port Renfrew fishing is really starting to turn on….he hit quite a few spring salmon this morning.

John from HindSight Fishing Charters sent some photos fro the weekend too. Fishing with Lance, MacGregor, and the boys, some nice halibut. John also said the salmon fishing has been good lately too.

As a bonus, the crabbing in San Juan harbour is reported to be absolutely incredible … worth the visit just for that!
