Fishing Reports

Brookings ocean fishing charters to resume

We’ve missed you, and are ready to take you fishing again. The stay-home mandates from the state of Oregon have sidelined our ocean charters for the past month, but we are now resuming private charters (smaller individual groups) and expect to expand to mixed charters again in early May. We have been in close communication with ODFW and the Oregon State Marine Board, other Oregon Coast charter businesses, and local elected leaders in making this decision to open back up.

Brookings is taking steps to re-open its motels and other businesses.

Please understand that social distancing guidelines still apply. We are comfortable in our ability run run ocean charters while abiding by the governor’s executive order on social distancing. Today, the Curry County commissioners voted to begin re-opening motels and RV parks. Motels should be open by May 1. Restaurants in Brookings are open for take-out and soon may be open to dine in. The Port of Brookings is open for business.

Please be aware, the communities of the Oregon Coast have limited medical facilities and many local residents are concerned about visitors returning. Please be respectful of local residents and maintain the 6 feet of social distancing and avoid businesses outside of the tourism and visitor industry.

While we have been waiting for the curve to flatten, our crew has been fishing with family members and local friends and are glad to report the fishing has been good. We will have a nice rockfish and lingcod season this spring and summer, and the outlook for halibut and salmon is good. The weather is beautiful on the coast and the fresh air and great ocean fishing is a sure cure for spring fever. To book a trip, visit or call (541) 813-1082.
