What are the fishing opportunities on the Oregon coast the last week of April. I assume steelhead will be over. Would a charter for bottom fish be worthwhile?
There are a few opportunities for fishing the last week of April on the Oregon coast. Sea perch start to move into the bays, the coastal lakes are regularly stocked with rainbow trout by the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife and there are a few winter steelhead around but it is the end of the run. And yes, if the seas are calm there is charter fishing.

- I’m looking to plan an anniversary trip for last week in July. Would like to stay somewhere near the coast that includes breakfast and would like to be close to horseback ride options. Other interests would be wine tasting and zoos/aquariums. Any Ideas?
