Pacific Mackerel in Oregon?

Howdy all,

I was wondering if anyone knows whether Pacific Mackerel run nearshore along the Oregon coast? If so, where are good spots to go after them?

They do come into our waters. In years past there have reports as far north as Vancouver Island.
There was a report a few days ago of a boat getting into them at the rock pile. There seems to be a lot of warm water heading our way. An exotic was already caught in NoCal and confirmed tuna caught 52 miles off of the CR. Once the wind machine dies off there will be a lot of sport boats going out and I'm sure there will be many reports and stories.

Don't know of any bank areas that have them though.

About 10-15 years ago I used to spend a couple weeks a summer up in Barclay Sound off the west coast of Vancouver Island fishing for Kings. We would hook into several Mackerel a day up there while trolling Apex lures for the Salmon. That was in late August early September.

never heard of them caught from shore up here in OR, but that doesn't mean it doesn't happen. We catch them every year trolling hootchies for coho out of newport and we're only a couple miles out.

In Cali you could fish for them from Shore.
