Reports

ODFW creel monitoring for recreational crab harvest takes place in Columbia, Tillamook, Netarts, Yaquina, Alsea, and Coos Bay.

Crabbing in Oregon bays this year is slower than normal for this time of the year.  There have been some reports that crabbing in Tillamook Bay has improved, with some crabbers were able to catch limits at times.  The best months for bay crabbing in Oregon are August through November. Bay crabbing success usually declines after significant rainfall as salinity levels drop.

The unit of “Crabs per person" reflects the average number of legal size Dungeness crab caught for each recreational fisher for their crabbing trip, as reported by interview’s conducted by creel surveyors.
