Fishing’s getting better at the beach
Some anglers are catching limits of rockfish and lingcod out of Newport and Depoe Bay; jetties and rocky coastline can be good for rockfish, greenling and lingcod, and the ocean surf off sandy beaches is the place to target surf perch.

Check out these and other salty opportunities in the Marine Zone section of the Recreation Report.
