Cutthroat trout fishing in coastal rivers/streams
Fishing for cutthroat trout in Oregon's coastal rivers and streams can be a great family activity – especially this time of year. Look for searun cutthroat to move into rivers later this month. Check the NW and SW zone reports to find a river near you.
Surf and Surf
Tuna fishing off the Oregon Coast has been very good, and crabbing has been improving in many of the bays. Time for a trip to the coast to catch dinner. Get more details in the Marine Zone update.
