    Very slow where we were. Yeah we should have went way west. Slow at east point and camper. Went for coho but couldn't find them.

    Nice to finally meet you Brutus, Meet a few great people this week at the marina. Derby was a lot of fun and did manage to place 5th with only a 22lber , fishing was definitely a lot slower than a couple weeks ago . Ken

    You can’t say ‘grind’ and ‘best day all season’ in the same post. Lol

    Ok, get Jackel on your boat let him pick the spot, let him cut the bait let him put the bait down let him set the hook then play the fish loose it at the boat duck for cover and repeat , enough detail??? Lol

    Same day my partner and I went to Walbran after trying East point and Camper...about 11:00 we worked the area off " Little Beach" and hooked into three nice chinook in the next hour...but we were trolling , not nearly as much fun as cut plugging!

    606B0C61-F473-44AF-9061-AC0179A6034B.jpeg Just back from the week at Renfrew. It was scratchy Tuesday and Wednesday but yesterday we were at Logan by midday and got a couple. It looked fishy there so we went straight there this AM and had lines in by 7:15. We had a spring on before the second line was in the water and had 5 by 8 o clock. The 6th proved harder with a couple of long distance releases and a broken tail but we were done by 10. We ran out to 500 feet to look for coho as we trolled east back to the bay but nada. Once the wind came up at 11 we pulled the pin and headed in. The boys atEast Point had some today so it looks like a fresh batch of fish is around. I forgot my crab traps at our cabin so if anyone is coming back to Victoria and has room, you’d be a hero!

    There are still a few fish around. It is a little slow but can still pick up a few, but with rain today and this week poof going to be gone. Fished Camper and East point. Got one around 10lbs there and one in teens by East point. Nice day out there, and great way to spend time with family.

    One thing that is strange is no coho. Went far out and all over the place, and couldn't seem to find them.

    Hows the coho looking for the derby? Anyone think they'll be around by then or will it be 100 boats looking to catch the one in the area lol.

    I think this will turn out to be a bad coho year. We didn't find many in Port Hardy a month ago as we usually did in previous years. A buddy in Nootka was disappointed too when trying for hos there. I hope I am wrong but the signs are there...

    Still early. We have major rain happening/big tides next few days, so that should light things up.

    Last year the rain hit hard about the same time and the season was over, there was a few fish but it was slim picking, hope its not a rerun of last year. I love fall coho season, was going to go this weekend and the forecast was nasty so i wAit it out a bit

    I agree doesn't look good this weekend at all.

    On another note be careful if you have your boats up there especially on the river. My wife's family had one of their down riggers stolen last weekend. At the dock just in front of PRM.

    I have not heard of any problems at Gateway Marina.
    We don't stay long term like many do at the Renfrew Marina but leave all our gear in the boat.

    They had their trailer stolen last year so it was pretty upsetting to have a other thing happen again. Gateway has lots of cameras and people on site usually.
