As a newer resident of Portland, after spending 20+ years in Hawaii, I’m always looking for great, fun things to do around Portland. And there are so many great recreational things to do in and around Portland I am constantly surprised!
My recent find, and now one of my absolute favorite things to visit, is Depoe Bay and bottom-fishing with Dockside Charters. This is not a paid advertisement, I just loved the experience!
Book your trip online with this super friendly charter company. Your ticket includes rod and reel, bait, and expert onboard crew. If you don’t have a fishing license you can get a one day permit there.
On a recent trip everyone on the boat caught their limit of rockfish and ling cod. Seven rockfish and two 22 inch plus ling cod puts a lot of great tasting fillets in the freezer. Cost for filleting and bagging is one dollar per rockfish and two dollars per ling cod. There is an option to put out a crab trap also!
What a great day, we even saw a gray whale when we were heading back to the harbor.
In the last year I’ve really learned a lot about Portland and the surrounding area and finally decided to buy and settle in the Villebois neighborhood of Wisonville. I’d love to help you find your next property and maybe we can share stories of the hidden gems around the area.
