Salt Water Fishing in Oregon

Are rock bass, kelp greenling, surf perch etc biting during the winter? I’ve been wanting to go surf fishing and hit the jetty for rock bass I love how they taste. Since I’m talking about eating them are they open to retention in the winter?

This topic was discussed at length a month or two ago but since 2021 is upon us...... almost. I thought I would make sure my interpretation of the regulations are correct. Below is a copy and paste of a email I received today from ODFW, it looks to me as if I can have a limit of 6 sea bass and...

Is there a reason this wouldn't be allowed? The guy at the tackle shop told me fishing was ok from boats or the shore, but not from the crab dock. I might be missing something simple, but i didn't see any signs at the dock, or anything about it in the regs. I erred on the side of caution, since...

I'm going to be staying in Brandon next weekend pretty close to the South jetty. If the weather/surf cooperates I'd like to do some fishing. From old posts it looks like there are redtail surf perch there. Is there anything else I could target from the shore/jetty?

I am so glad to be here! I grew up fishing the Mississippi river in nothern Iowa-Wisconsin but ALL of my life I dreamed of salt water fishing. Well, I've been here 7 months and have my license. I'm too blind to drive but I live close enough to the North Bend dock and the Empire dock: can I...

Yesterday was a beauty of a day to be out on the water down by Charleston. Put the boat in about 10:30 AM and had the traps in the water shortly afterward. Looked as if it was gonna be a slow day as we only had less than one limit to split after the first two pulls. but as the current slowed and...

Winter is coming. Lings are moving in. High pressure has been hard on river conditions but great for the salt fishing. Here's some pics of some razor toothed slabs. Fishing out on lake Newport which is often flatter than Hagg. Cheers

I'm thinking of hitting the stone wall for the first time just out of Newport. Is this place any good for rock fish?

Pepper and I slayed them at Simpson reef on Tuesday. Took home a pair of 6# lings, 3 nice black rockfish and a pair of dungies. Released a cabezon, 2 lingcod and several rockfish under 2#. Did not mark any schools of rockfish out there, these were hanging out alone on the bottom. Working on the...

Fished with Haystack Fishing, for ling cod and bottom fish. We launched off the beach about 7:30 a.m. and headed west. We started fishing within 10 minutes or so of launching, and probably had the first fish on within 15 minutes of launching. It was very cold to start the day, but the sun...

I know it has been slow, but any recent reports from Newport? We have never been fishing up there and my wife really wants to go. We have a few pots to drop and then want to target bottom fish. I am also curios about herring fishing, I hear they may do that as well? Thank you Dan

I am going to head out in Yaquina bay tomorrow and I was wondering if anyone has any reports to share? I’m taking my 5 year old son out so I’m hoping we can get some keepers for him. It’s been a very off year in Yaquina bay. Maybe I can find a big lingcod for him to help me reel in also. Thanks...
