Oregon Crabbing

About Oregon Crabbing
Oregon crabbing is a year round activity that can almost always yield a successful trip.
Crabbing trips require minimal gear, often available for rental in coastal towns, and while boat crabbing increases your likelihood for success, dockside crabbing is easy and very accessible. Before crabbing, be aware of crab regulations. Knowledge of where, when, and how to crab will increase your likelihood of success and information on crab biology, identification, and behavior will enhance your experience.





Where and When to Crab
In every Oregon estuary, some crab can be found.
Coos, Yaquina, and Tillamook normally provide the best year round opportunities.
Smaller estuaries and those with more freshwater influence may be good during the late summer through the early winter
Availability by area
  • Columbia River: Dungeness
  • Necanicum: Dungeness
  • Nehalem Bay: Dungeness
  • Tillamook: Dungeness, Red rock
  • Netarts Bay: Dungeness, Red rock
  • Nestucca Bay: Dungeness
  • Siletz Bay: Dungeness
  • Yaquina Bay: Dungeness, Red rock
  • Alsea Bay: Dungeness
  • Siuslaw River: Dungeness
  • Umpqua River: Dungeness
  • Coos Bay: Dungeness, Red rock
  • Coquille River:  Dungeness
  • South Coast:

    • Port Orford: Dock crabbing can be found year round from the Port docks - Ocean (boat) crabbing areas are easily accessible.
    • Gold Beach: (Rogue River) and Brookings (Chetco River) - Crabbing in these estuaries may only be success.

    • Time of year: Fall is typically the best time to crab. Beginning in September, crabs will tend to be more “filled out”, meaning there is a higher percentage of quality meat. This is detected by the condition of the shell. Hard shelled crabs will contain 20-30% meat by weight, compared to soft shelled crabs which can be as low as 12%. At times after heavy rainfall and resulting freshets, crab tend to be less abundant in the bays.
      Time of day: “Slack water” (the times of peak high or low tide) are the best times to crab. At slack water, the highest number of crab are walking around foraging, since they are less affected by tidal currents.
      Legal Season: Crabbing is open in estuaries (i.e. bays), beaches, tide pools, piers, and jetties year round. Crabbing in the ocean is CLOSED for Dungeness crab from October 16 to November 30.essful in the driest parts of the summer when the freshwater influence is minimal. Ocean (boat) crabbing areas are easily accessible.

The Best Fall Waterfall Hikes in Oregon


3 Waterfall Hikes in Oregon

                                               Eagle Creek to Punchbowl Falls Hike


Eagle Creek to Punchbowl Falls Hike
Length: 4 miles roundtrip
This popular cascade is a Columbia Gorge favorite, and for good reason. The relatively easy hike parallels the crystalline Eagle Creek for a ways and winds through a lovely forest of evergreens. This time of year, vine maples burst with color among the underbrush, and if you’re lucky, you might even see spawning salmon in the creek.
http://www.oregonhikers.org/field_guide/Eagle_Creek_to_Punchbowl_Falls_Hike

                                                      Umbrella Falls Loop Hike



Umbrella Falls Loop Hike
Length: 4.6 miles roundtrip
The incredible wildflowers that color this hike on Mount Hood in the spring are long gone by this time of year, but there’s often a new dusting of bright white snow on the peak’s upper reaches that adds a stunning scene. The falls, too, are something to see, and if you loop it right, you can also take in a second set, Sahale Falls, on your way back.
http://www.oregonhikers.org/field_guide/Umbrella_Falls_Loop_Hike

                                                             Niagara Falls Hike
Niagara Falls Hike
Length: 2 miles roundtrip
The name of is waterfall is a familiar one, but the Oregon iteration of Niagara Falls is on a much more peaceful and relaxing scale than the renowned falls back east. The trail wends its way through a lush forest splashed with fall color and arrives at a bit of a surprise: not only is the 107-foot Niagara Falls here, but so is the 112-foot Pheasant Creek Falls.
