If you’re looking to fill up the freezer, or if you just want to get spoiled with some hot fishing action, then you need to do some fishing on the Oregon Coast. Venturing out onto the Pacific Ocean brings a peaceful seclusion from hoards of anglers often found on Oregon’s Rivers, and, oftentimes, non-stop fishing action. Oregon’s coastline is home to a variety of fish, but we’re mostly fond of Rockfish and Lingcod. These fish like to cling around deep reefs and rocky outcroppings which provide shelter and an abundance of food. Rockfish and Lingcod are also some of the best tablefare in the Pacific Ocean. Baked, fried, poached, it’s hard to go wrong with these fish. Fishing for Rockfish and Lingcod is a fairly simple affair. If you have done much bass or perch fishing on lakes and ponds, a lot of what we use will look familiar, just on a much larger scale. These fish are aggressive feeders, so bait is generally not necessary. They do live down in some deep water, so heavy jigs are sent down to the ocean floor to entice the toothy Lingcod. Rockfish are attracted to small shrimp flies, which we tie onto the same leader as the Lingcod jig. It is not uncommon to catch two and even three fish at the same time. While out on the ocean, there is a lot of sightseeing to do as well. You can see the coastline of Oregon from the Ocean to get a whole new look at steep cliffs and rock formations. It is uncommon to see whales migrating and dolphins might even swim by for an appearance. We are excited to start offering guided trips for Rockfish, Lingcod and even Halibut this year.
