Kayak Fishing Ultimate Resource

The second part of "How to Kayak Fish the Oregon Coast" brings us to Depoe Bay.  DB, as the locals call it, is a small hole cut out of the cliffs, making it the world's smallest navigable harbor. Because DB is so small, and there’s no river feeding into the harbor, it’s easy to drop in a kayak at the $2 boat launch, head through the 50’ x 300’ “hole” and find yourself in the Pacific Ocean without even thinking of dealing with a surf launch. But then the question hits you – How do I fish this place?

Kayak Fishing the Oregon Coast pt. 1

Let me introduce you to the Oregon Coast. This had begun as a tutorial on a specific fishing area, but has quickly expanded. This first part is focusing on the gear that we use here in the PacNW when bottom fishing on the coast.  We’re going to be targeting Rockfish, Lingcod, Cabezon and Greenling.  Bottom fishing on the Oregon Coast is an excellent, often fast paced fishery. So let’s get started with the tackle.

Oregon Rockfish Classic

The Oregon Rockfish Classic was born as a fishing trip.

orc2008a In Pacific City, Oregon, less than a dozen kayak anglers met up on Sept 20th, 2008.  From throughout Oregon and Washington, they came to fish what some called the Oregon Coast Derby.  Others called it the Pacific City Kayak Fishing Classic.  There were a couple prizes to be had, but fishing was the main call.  Pacific City is one of the easiest surf launches because it is fairly well protected.  That's not to say there weren't some spills though.
