Clamming and Crabbing
There are plenty of activities and sightseeing adventures to conquer when visiting Lincoln City, Oregon. With a modest population of approximately over 8,000 people, located along the beautiful Pacific coastline, one of the many things greatly recommended among it's populous is clamming and crabbing.
All you need to partake in these activities are gloves, bucket, crab trapping gear, and don't forget your license for taking home your trappings! If you're over 14 years of age you'll need to acquire a license to get any type of marine shellfish.
The climate in Lincoln City is very subtle year round, with January's average temperature is roughly about a low 36F, and summer warmest month being in August with an average high of 70F. So it's good to know that clamming and crabbing is in season any time of the year.
If you're looking for an adequate spot for crabbing, travel to the southern most edge of the city to the Siletz Bay a couple of hours after the low tide, this is when most ocean creatures and crustaceans seem the most active and the waters' currents won't mess around with your crab trapping equipment. If you're looking for some efficient trapping gear or a license, Lincoln City has many stores to choose from. From Eleanor's Undertow located in the Taft area, to Bi-Mart, and Ace Hardware, though Ace Hardware is where you can only purchase the gear and not the license.
Make sure you follow up on the rules and regulations when deciding to spend your evening hunting and trapping your delicious finds, the city has so many spots for doing so, and enjoy your wonderful stay around the bay.
