View Full Version : northern Oregon
I will be spending some time not too far form your beautiful coast in the month of June and was wondering if you guys can share some info with me. I will be in Portland and I hear it is about an hour and a half from the coast. I did a quick search for posts in the area and did not find too many.
What I would like to know is what I can expect to get at that time of year, water temperatures, vis range, shark situation and anything else you would like to share.
And if anyone wants to meet for a dive, Iím super down.
Thanks in advance

Fits, most of the fish will be black rockfish, or lingcod, viz will range from 1'to10', water temps will be in the low 50's and never had problems with sharks, they usually just mess with the surfers. If diving from shore best spots would probably be Garibaldi, North jetty, Netarts, or the Newport area.
Hope that helps out.

As I've been warned, be careful at Netarts with all of the boat traffic out there crabbing. Has anyone gone spearing off Warrenton (like the west side of Ft Stevens) just south of the mouth of the Columbia??

Get in touch once you're here. The diving situation is kind of hit or miss on the Oregon Coast. It can be pretty good, there are quite a few fish when you can see them. Look at the tide charts and try to find days where there are long slack tides and plan on calling in sick those days. And bring a warm wet suit!
Thanks dudes. that is about 500% more info than i had yesterday.
i'll Get in touch if i will be able to gather all my gear in time to fly back to the west coast.
Dparche, i'll be in ny tomorrow. lets get a dive in! i haven't been in the water in 3 months.

I was just in the Portland area for a week, didn't go spearfishing though, or even fishing for that matter.
