Reports

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

Crabbing in Oregon’s bays has been hit-and-miss this fall season. Look for crabbing on days when there hasn’t been a lot of rainfall, and the tidal exchange is not that extreme. Legal-sized male Dungeness crabs have been showing up in many bays, and some boat crabbers are catching limits. 

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.
