Large Swell in The Forecast

The Tradewinds Depoe Bay fleet will not be running bottom fishing  or salmon trips tomorrow (Thursday-August 12th) because of a reported large swell that is forecasted to hit the coastal waters off Depoe Bay early in the morning.  Swells could be 8-9 foot and there movement will be out of the west and with a minus tide to boot that gives opportunity for the Depoe Bay bar to be very nautical and can be dangerous to cross.  Sorry for those who had reservations tomorrow morning but SAFETY ALWAYS COMES FIRST AT TRADEWINDS.
