Crabbing for Abbey Street Pier (Dock)
Enjoyed the short, level walk and talking with people on the pier. One of the great things about this pier is that it has an actual working dock, not just tourist shops. One family caught eighteen crabs in four hours, not counting the ones they threw back, but this was an exception, do not count on doing this every day.
It’s a long stretch of dock open to the public and free. If you don’t want to rent a boat to crab, this is the spot.
This is a working fish dock with many fishing boats of different sizes bringing in their catches. An excellent place to see seafood being offloaded and get a small taste of the fishing experience. On some days, you can buy fresh fish right off the boats. In-season local fishermen sell their albacore tuna off the boat. Welcome the fishermen as they return home or wave them off as they go to sea.
Hear the sea lions barking and swimming around the piers by the docks. Fun to stand and watch them up close. Great area for a stroll. Many photo ops to take advantage of. You can watch the fishermen load/unload boats and head out.
A quick and easy detour off Hwy 101 offered great views of Conde McCullough’s Yaquina Bay Bridge, the Newport Marina, and many happy crabbers.
This is authentic. Real fishermen are here having a smoke after having come in after a grueling shift. Some shops sell tourist stuff and shops that sell freshly caught seafood. It has an abundance of good restaurants.
You can find noisy sea lions and noisy kids, and the whole area is permeated with a fishy smell. It’s a great place to people-watch. Several large and bustling fishing processing plants share space for small piers, lots of restaurants, seals, boardwalk, fishing boats, salt air, lots of shops, and places to explore. Parking is a problem, but worth looking for parking. Usually, find a side street to park. It has everything from the more commercial seaside attractions to quaint gift shops and many restaurants. A great place to buy fresh oysters.
A very enjoyable experience walking both sides of the street. Excellent food, sweet treats, fresh seafood right off the boats, beautiful products by local artisans. Very relaxed vibe. Anything you’re looking for can probably be found in these few blocks

The third Dock is across the bridge next to the Rogue Brewery.
Newport takes crabbing very seriously. In fact, the phrase “The Dungeness Capital of the World” became a registered trademark of the city in 2007.
Newport’s commercial crabbers have been harvesting record numbers of this prized culinary crustacean for over a decade. Crabbing from a dock or pier is much easier and less expensive than crabbing from a boat, although the availability of crab is limited to the specific area where you choose to drop your traps.
Native red rock crabs, which prefer the complex habitats that docks offer, are a common catch in these areas. Gear may be set anywhere within public areas along these docks, but be sure not to interfere with boat traffic.
Rogue Brewery is next to the Dock and they offer tours
Dungeness crab season is year-round for Newport. The Dungeness crab is a saltwater creature. Beginning in September, crabs will tend to be more “filled out,” meaning there is a higher percentage of quality meat.
