BARVIEW JETTY REPAIR 06/15/10 - 09/30/10
Should be closed until September... (drat!)... you can try fishing in the bay above the Jetty... or in the Surf to the North... repairs will put a lot of food into the water, bringing big fish in from the deep water and driving the 'resident' fish away from the Jetty during the repairs. If stirred up too much or if too much activity the fish will not bite. I am going to fish the South Jetty by walking in or may just go up to Nehalem and fish there. http://www.kytefm.com
June 15, 2010 The Coast Guard has issued a proposal to establish a safety zone at the Barview Jetty in Tillamook starting today and running through Sept. 30. The jetty has deteriorated to the point that the Army Corps of Engineers has contracted to repair the jetty. The safety zone has been established due to the inherent dangers associated with such operations.
http://www.deepwaterinvestigation.com/go/doc/21/529603/PORTLAND, Ore. — The Coast Guard has issued a proposal to establish a safety zone at the Barview Jetty in Tillamook, Ore., from June 15 through Sept. 30.
The jetty has deteriorated to the point that the Army Corps of Engineers has contracted Kiewit Corporation to repair the jetty. The repairs will involve the use of a track-mounted 18,000 lb. crane with as much as 200-feet of boom. The crane will be used to move large granite boulders weighing approximately 20 to 50 tons each by lifting them up, circling them out over the waterway on either side of the north jetty, and placing them into the jetty.
Due to the inherent dangers associated with such operations, the Coast Guard is proposing the establishment of a safety zone covering all waters within 250-feet in every direction of the north jetty, named the Barview Jetty. The safety zone will help ensure the safety of work crews and the maritime public while the jetty is being repaired by prohibiting all persons and vessels from entering or remaining in the zone unless specifically authorized by the Captain of the Port or his designated representative.
