Trout, bass and warmwater, rockfish and ocean salmon are good bets for your weekend fishing.
The popular razor clamming beaches in Clatsop County (from Tillamook Head in Seaside to the mouth of the Columbia River) will be closed to clamming July 15 through Sept. 30 for the annual conservation closure.
If your young hunter applied for a big game tag and was unsuccessful, they may be eligible to apply for a Youth “First Time” Hunt tag. Under this program, young hunters can apply for tags in the buck deer, antlerless deer and antlerless elk hunt series.
Hiking or camping plans getting in the way of fishing this weekend? Going to be busy kayaking or going to the beach? No need to choose between fishing and other fun – just take a rod with you.
These workshops fill quickly, so register soon!
During the pheasant hunting workshops you’ll participate in an actual hunt with the help of a volunteer and their trained hunting dog. This is a great introduction to upland bird hunting. All participants must complete a required shotgun skills class before attending a hunting workshop.
