Digging for Bay Clams on the Oregon Coast
Fishing Reports

bayclams1Oregon estuaries are rich with many species of clams, although only a few of these species are commonly harvested. Gaper, butter, cockle, littleneck, and softshell are primarily harvested due to their abundance, size, and taste. A wide variety of other bivalve species are found in Oregon estuaries, but not commonly harvested due either to their scarcity or lack of palatability.

Successful clamming does require some knowledge and preparation. Before clamming, harvesters should be aware of weather, regulations, closures, responsible harvest, and techniques.

Fish and Wildlife Commission sets 2010 Oregon Coast ocean Salmon seasons
Fishing Reports

by Our Oregon Coast

The Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission adopted 2010 ocean salmon seasons for sport and commercial fisheries keeping with Pacific Fishery Management Council guidelines that were set April 15.

The PFMC approves salmon fishing regulations for ocean waters from three to 200 miles off shore. The Commission approves similar regulations for ocean waters extending three miles from the state’s shoreline.

From Cape Falcon, near Manzanita, south to the California border, PFMC adopted the first significant ocean fisheries for chinook salmon since 2007. However, the approved fisheries will still be restricted because stocks of Sacramento River chinook salmon continue to be weak for the third straight year.

PFMC approved a May 29 through Sept. 6 recreational season for chinook salmon, with fishing allowed for hatchery fin-clipped coho salmon from June 26 through Sept. 6, or until 26,000 coho are landed, whichever comes first

Fly fishing for Lingcod and Rockfish on the Oregon Coast goes off
Fishing Reports

From "Caddis Fly"

The following story is from Rob Russell, who had the time of his life on the Oregon Coast, fly fishing for lingcod and rockfish with Captain Nate. The photos are from the following day, where Jeff Hickman and Rob Elam experienced calm seas and seabass on topwater poppers.

Caddis1b

Nate lives for the ocean. More specifically, he lives for the intense, adrenalized focus that the ocean requires. He’s the only Northwest fly-fishing guide I’ve ever known with his specific illness, and it’s contagious. Lately he’s been talking about a series of near-shore reefs that line a rocky section of the Oregon coastline. “If I can get us in behind those reefs, Rob, we are going to crush!” The problem has been finding a day, or even a few hours, when wind and water would allow safe passage across the bar.
