Dungeness Crab

Noah loves crabbing

Crabbing open coast-wide and catches are increasing

Ocean and bay crabbing is open coast-wide. Newly molted, larger crab are being caught in the ocean and many bays. Some of these crab have hardened up a bit while others are fairly soft and have less meat in them. Catches are increasing everywhere up and down the coast and the quality should improve as the summer progresses.

Plenty of places to catch ‘trophy trout’ this summer

Thousands of extra-large rainbow trout are being released at locations around the state this season as the as the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife enters the second year of its “Trophy Trout” program. These 15-inch-and-larger trout are adding excitement to what is already one of Oregon’s most popular outdoor activities — trout fishing. See the news release or trout stocking schedule for details.

As temperatures rise, think warmwater fishing

As temperatures rise moving into summer, warmwater fish such as bass, crappie, and bluegill get more active, making them a good option this time of year. To learn more about this fun fishing activity, check out our Warmwater Fishing Page for ideas on when, where, and how to catch these fish.
