Fishing Boardwalk

One of the most popular spots is the Westport fishing boardwalk. Here whole families can toss out a crab pot and fish off the pier - sometimes you catch your limit, sometimes you just enjoy the afternoon.

Fishing Season 2014

“Westward Bound for Westport”

Yes, here we go again, WESTPORT! How can I not talk about one of the most exciting fisheries in the Northwest. With predicted kings runs due back to the Columbia River all passing by Westport this summer you should add this fishery to your fishing list for summer. Couple that great chinook and coho fishing who needs to go anywhere else this summer. This is also a great time of year to target bottom fish by running a combo trip, Salmon in the AM and sea bass on the drop offs in the afternoon.
