Surfperch thrill surf fishing anglers

Ginger Rogers of Merlin, Oregon and her husband limited out on a variety of surfperch while surf fishing with raw shrimp at various Brookings-area beaches on Wednesday and Thursday.

When I first started fishing the Oregon coast, I didn’t have much money to spend on gas, bait and tackle, so I quickly became privy to the kinds of fisheries where you didn’t have to spend an arm and a leg to bring home the bacon. That’s when I quickly started honing in on the most cost-effective fisheries in the ocean like surf fishing, jetty fishing and tide pool fishing.

When surfperch are biting, it is without a doubt the most cost-effective fishery on the coast, and they’re biting right now with fervor.

There are only two things you need to know about surf fishing for surfperch. Fish bite the best on an incoming tide, and they make great fish tacos.

Goodbye Chetco steelhead, hello rockfish and surfperch

Mark Gasich of Harbor holds up two lingcod and some hefty black rockfish he limited out on while fishing plastics out of the Port of Brookings Harbor on Thursday.

The Chetco will be closing its doors to the retention of steelhead and salmon this week one hour after sunset on Tuesday, March 31. Not that there are any salmon to be caught.  But March can often be a good month to cash in on the end of the winter steelhead run, and, by the way the river is looking, Saturday, Sunday, Monday and Tuesday should all be great days to plunk, side-drift, drift-fish or pull plugs.

As of Thursday, the water had a Coke-bottle-green tinge and was at 2,900 cfs. You couldn’t have ordered better water conditions, so this is definitely your last chance at tripping the winter steelhead fantastic.
