Commercial

Newport in February has conducted the longest continuous wine competition in the Northwest. This is an exciting opportunity to taste award-winning wines, meet the winemakers responsible for them and discover why the wine world is coming to Oregon in search of the best.
For the last 29 years of the Festival's thirty-eight year history, Gold, Silver, Bronze and Best-In-Show awards have been handed out to the most consistent achievers in a Commercial Wine Competition marked by one strong field after another. This early-in-the-year look at Northwest wines offers clear evidence of which wineries are on track and who to watch at other festival showcases around the country throughout the year.

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.
