alright i got a 2 or 3 weeks probably to figure all this stuff out :-D im antsy tho
You can fish underneath the bridge at Depoe Bay, ut the bigger cabezon and lings are caught off the rocks at the mouth of the channel and to the left toward the Spouting Horn. You can also try Boiler Bay and Fishing Rock (to the north of the Surf Rider Motel. Take the first left after the motel and follow the road to the park.) Caution: Be sure of your footing and watch the tides in all of these places.
The best clamming that I have found is at Garibaldi and Newport. At Newport there are several places, under the bridge, behind the Aquarium and next to the OSU parking lot. Take the time to go into the ODF office (on the way to the public pier) and pick up their pamphlets on surf fishing and clamming. Some good info and its free! Again be careful on the mud flats. Stuff looks fairly solid, but you can mire down well above your ankles very suddenly and you can become very stuck. I did just that a few weeks back and might still be there if I hadn't gotten some help. BTW, if you happen to fall down in the mud flat, don't expect even your mother to take you in. This stuff doesn't smell like red roses!
Hope this helps.
