Default Oregon Groundfish species will close in all saltwater areas

August 30 - NEWPORT - The sport fishery for major groundfish species will close in all saltwater areas (including fishing from shore, in estuaries and the ocean) starting Friday, Sept. 3, much earlier than originally expected.
Other recreational saltwater fishing opportunities remain open. These include: flounder, sole, sand dabs, perch, herring, anchovy, smelt, sardine, STRIPED BASS and offshore pelagic species. Salmon continues to be an active sport fishery and some limited seasons are open for halibut.

This is the first year the sport rockfish fishery will not be open the entire year.

This closure includes all rockfishes, lingcod and greenling. Fishing for cabezon closed in August. Retention of these species is prohibited by all methods of take.

"Landing data for the saltwater sport fishery show that we will meet our limit for the sport harvest of black rockfish and lingcod by the end of this week," said Don Bodenmiller, project leader for marine recreational groundfish fisheries for the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife.
How inappropriate to call this planet Earth when it is quite clearly Ocean.

This is the only place that I charter out of but its been a few years since it has been worth the trip. I used to go at least once a year but it looks like it will be awhile before this is worth the effort. Never in ten or so years of fishing this port have I ever even heard of a striper being recently caught. Not that they don't ever catch them, they are just rare from what I know.
