Catching the Elusive Oregon Coast Dungeness
Catching Dungeness Crab on the Oregon Coast is a year-round sport in the estuaries, coastal rivers and tidal bays. In the ocean, crab season is closed from August 15th through November 30th. The best weather to go in is mild to sunny weather. Sustained rains bring fresh water. They are salt-water creatures and heavy rains force them out to sea because of the sudden lack of salt water.
Coastal Salmon Restoration
"We, the people of Oregon, promise to do our best to understand and respect the needs of salmon, and to make meaningful commitments in the way we conduct our lives, in the hope that salmon and people will survive and flourish, together long into the future."
