What Gear Do You Need?
In order to have the best chances of reeling in the catch of the day, you need the right equipment. You need fishing gear that can handle being cast into the heavy surf. This includes things like:
- A nine to 11-foot rod which can hold a weight between two and six ounces
- Spare spool of line
- A bait bucket filled with popular bait like clam necks, sand shrimp, or mole crabs
You will also need to purchase a general Oregon Angling license.
The Best Places to Fish
Casting your line for surfperch is something that can be enjoyed year-round. When looking for where to set up camp, you want to look for places with shallow areas and deeper holes. This includes looking for rocky areas in the sand, sloped beaches, and jetties. We recommend heading out during low tides as the conditions make spotting these areas easier. To avoid crowds, we also recommend setting your alarm early so you can snag an excellent section of shoreline.
