Port of Grays Harbor


Washington's Largest Fish Landing Port

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 2016


“If you have been reading THE REEL NEWS the last couple years I have been talking about the incredible summer fishing that’s been happing at Westport. If you haven’t taken advantage of it you’re missing out on one of the premier ocean fisheries in the Northwest. With the predicted good king runs due back again to the Columbia River all passing by Westport this summer how can you not add this fishery to your must do fishing list once again this summer. Couple chinook with bottom fishing and offshore albacore tuna and crabbing, you can bet anglers will be heading west this summer”.
Captain John Keizer, Salt Patrol
