dean1Dean, one the of the Kayak Concierges on Friday, August 3, 2018, at high tide went crabbing with a Crab Trap for the first time this season.  He set the trap on the west side near the Hwy 101 Siletz River bridge for two hours.

When he pulled the trap, he had 25 crabs and 12 keepers.

Now ….. he is eating crab.

Dean cleans and cooks crabs ………. ready to eat for $2/crab

SALMON are in the ocean waiting to start coming up the Siletz River.

depoe reportDOCKSIDE CHARTERS – Fishing Report:

Dockside Charters report that the wild Salmon are off the Oregon coast.  They report that they had some wild Salmon action on Thursday, July 9, 2018. They report that it was difficult to keep the gear in the water because of the sheer volume of fish biting. They had to put the majority of the Chinook back because they were not hatchery fish but decent numbers were retained (close to one per rod). The action was wild and everyone had a great time. ODFW numbers indicate that we have a long way to go to reach the quota so maybe we will get the scheduled season in.
