Albacore tuna are now being caught off Oregon’s south coast, out of Coos Bay and Charleston. If that isn’t enough ocean fun, orcas were spotted out of Charleston and also in Yaquina Bay. Farther north, people have getting a look grey whales, including from shore in Newport and Depoe Bay. It’s always a good time to visit the Oregon coast but summer is the best. And check out this week’s surf perch fishing photos in the Marine Zone report.
With elevated temperatures around come reports from around the state from fish biologists who’ve made note of some improvement in warmwater fisheries largemouth bass, bluegill, crappie, and perch, in every corner of the state. These fish are known for becoming more active during warmer weather making them excellent fare this time of year.
Deer fawns and other young animals are being born in the wild. Remember to not pick them up or disturb them, even if they are alone. More info
