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.
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!
