With the reported hot coho bite still happening off the Central and North Coast Ports, anglers remain focused on their saltwater options.

Although success rates tapered slightly in recent days, limits remain quite feasible for those still willing to put in some work, especially those willing to get an early jumpstart on their ocean adventure.

Newport remains a relative hotspot, but Depoe Bay, Pacific City and Garibaldi both remain strong options for those seeking a simple saltwater success story for coho. Chinook are also showing in the catches but remain just a fraction of the overall retained catch for these ports.

Updated chinook and coho catches by port can be found HERE. We are far from attaining any quotas for
the Oregon coast so keep fishing with confidence.

Halibut fishing remains challenging out of most Oregon ports. It seems they may just not have migrated this far south and high numbers this year. Things can change for this fishery however but as of now, halibut fishing is highly inconsistent. The next all depth opportunity is July 29 – 31. Hopefully the weather cooperates.

Freshwater fishing is in the tank. Summer steelhead remains an option on the Siletz, Nestucca, Three Rivers and Wilson, but all these systems have been poorly performing all summer. Spring Chinook are starting to darken and given the mediocre return, should be left alone.

Commercial boats are bringing in albacore tuna, but larger schools of “albies” remain a bit too far offshore for most to get intrigued.

Most northern and central ports are reporting a large percentage of soft-shell crab in their catches. It might be best to wait a few weeks.
