There's nothing like feeling that first bite on the line, hauling in your first Chinook, chasing that big one around for hours until you finally get it in the boat, or simply enjoying the pleasure of being out on the water in one of the most naturally beautiful places in the world.

Whether you've never been sporstfishing before or you're a seasoned vet who's looking for some new tips, our Port Renfrew fishing charters will take you to where you need to be: where the fish are.

Port Renfrew is the one of the top pacific sportfishing destinations on southern Vancouver Island. The waters of Port Renfrew boast huge numbers of sockeye, coho, Chinook, halibut, red snapper, and black cod. The halibut here have been known to reach over 200 pounds, and Port Renfrew salmon fishing is simply the stuff of legends.

Port Renfrew is located two hours north of Victoria BC on the beautiful west coast of Vancouver Island. The waters of the Juan de Fuca Strait create an idyllic location for sailing, canoeing, kayaking, and of course, deep sea fishing. Port Renfrew's proximity to locations like Swiftsure Bank and other fishing hotspots make it the ideal place to launch any fishing adventure from.

If you're a newbie, heading out on a charter is the best way to ensure you have the best fishing experience. There are plenty of fish out there to be caught, but only by those who know where to find them. When you're out on one of our halibut or salmon fishing charters, there's no way you'll be returning home empty handed.

Your skipper and guide J.R. can help you with everything from finding the right spot to choosing the right bait to loading up your fishing line to hauling your fish in the boat and even cleaning and storing your fish, if you so desire. So whether you're looking to land your first famous Port Renfrew halibut or you're in search of the legendary Vancouver Island Chinook, our Port Renfrew fishing charters can help you achieve all of your fishing goals.

Even if you're an experienced sportsfisher, hiring a charter can be a great way to learn some new techniques or explore a new area.

A charter is also a great option for a group fishing adventure. Planning a birthday party? A guy's weekend away? A bachelor party? An anniversary party? A sick day? Any excuse is a good excuse to plan a fishing trip.

JR can find the fish and make them bite. The fish cooler was overflowing and my arm was sore from reeling in the halibut and salmon. Sensational fishing and beautiful scenery off the West Coast of Vancouver Island.
— Kevin Arndt, Vancouver

John picked us up for our two day fishing adventure in his well equipped boat. We caught our limit each day in halibut and cod, plus a 22 lb. King Salmon, 2 red snappers and a beautiful coho salmon. We put crab traps out at the end of each day and picked them up the following evening. We caught enough crab for a very nice evening meal. Our fish was expertly cleaned and the halibut & snapper fileted. John's knowledge of where to go and what to use was evident in our daily catch. It was one of the best fishing trips I've ever experienced and you can well imagine why I am already planning next year's fishing adventure with Jolly Rogers charters.
