    Stayed at Wild Coast Cottages in Villa Joanne Monday to Wednesday for my first unguided trip. Easy access to marina/ramp and enough room to park truck and boat at cottage. Hindsight charters was very sharing with info and even some gave me some used spoons but I was unable to convert to halibut or springs. Mediocre weather so only put in 4hrs of fishing over 2 days. Saw 3 other boats maximum. Easily picked up a couple rockfish and a legal ling for dinner while bottom jigging tho. Threw the fly successfully for rockfish and greenling too.

    Got a couple legal crabs along the beach near other traps but it was not great crabbing. Suspect better crabbing elsewhere in bay based on reports. Chicken was a much better crab bait than fresh rockfish carcass.

    So, I was planning on a trip up from the US in a couple of weeks, but it looks like even west of Port Renfrew will be closed along the beach as of June 1? Am I understanding that right?

    Looks that way but I would wait until the 1st to see if that’s what the announcement is. Lots of pain for a lot of people....

    according to rumours-- eastpoint to otter. east point is on the east side of the renfrew harbour

    I believe East point is referring to southern east end of Saturna Island not Port Renfrew.
    So from east of Otter point to west of East point might be closed and west of otter pint will be open.

    It is East Point just south of Renfrew and back towards Sooke. No announcement yet but that has been going around.

    Too bad you didn't have any friends to fish with, you could have fished longer
