  3. [FISHING REPORT] October 2 2010 Port Renfrew

    Vancouver Island
    This was the coho derby weekend at Port Renfrew Marina. I don't go in derbies but was out with a few buddies anyways. There seemed to be enough coho to keep people busy, we had a slow morning but the afternoon picked up real good. All fish on green and white spoon and green flasher, not a hit on...

    Saltwater General Discussion
    Help! This is maybe a tall order but I've got a friend driving out this weekend for a couple of days of fishing with me on my little 16 ft runabout. I'm in Yellow Point (Nanaimo) and have not had any success lately. Just some grilse. I'm fairly new to trolling the salt so I'm really...

    Went out Saturday and had Sockeye swarming around the boat. Landed one, lost two. Went out Sunday, very few Sockeye visable; however, lost one at the boat. Landed two White Springs: 10lb and 26lb. Both at 50-60 feet on Sockeye gear. Lots of grilse so keep an eye on your gear for that little wiggle.
  6. [FISHING REPORT] Port Renfrew - Sept 2010

    Vancouver Island
    Just got back from a week in Rennie with my oldest son. This was my first trip over there, so it was a learning experience. To sum it up, the spring fishing was slow. Not a lot coming in, and most weren't that large that I did see landed. The Coho fishing just started to heat up the last couple...

  8. Port Renfrew in September

    Saltwater General Discussion
    Heading to Renfrew next week and looking for an updated fishing report. Are there still some big Springs around? Have the Coho moved in yet? I have seen the Island Outfitters report but was hoping to get some more specific insight.

    Saltwater General Discussion
    Just got back from my first trip to Port Renfrew. I highly suggest a trip there for anyone who wants to hit the different types of salmon in one day. Had springs, coho, and also took some time to work the muscles hauling up halibut. Could have targeted sockeye also, but I have enough from local...
