Tuna, orcas, gray whales show up all along the Oregon coast

Albacore tuna are now being caught off Oregon’s south coast, out of Coos Bay and Charleston. If that isn’t enough ocean fun, orcas were spotted out of Charleston and also in Yaquina Bay. Farther north, people have getting a look grey whales, including from shore in Newport and Depoe Bay. It’s always a good time to visit the Oregon coast but summer is the best. And check out this week’s surf perch fishing photos in the Marine Zone report.
