The reports that we heard was that salmon fishing was quite slow this morning with not that many fish caught.  The action was also slow with the ocean seemingly a little dead this morning with not many birds working the water or anything.  Its only the first day of the September fishery and we did hear that boats off of Waldport had good action down there.  Those fish will be moving thru our area here pretty soon.

Bottom fishing

No reports thus far on the bottom fishery from the boats up north but we did have one boat that fished locally and limited out on rockfish and was home an hour and a half early.


Crabbing was also very good this morning with not a whole lot of information but the word was it was good.
