Proximity to Corvallis and other southern Willamette Valley towns makes the Alsea a popular spot for anglers seeking fall chinook and winter steelhead. The Alsea is paralleled along much of its path to the Pacific by Oregon Highway 34; over 20 public and commercial boat ramps make it easy to get on the river. Alsea Bay, where the river enters the ocean at Waldport, is one of Oregon’s top five crabbing venues. Remember—only mature male Dungeness crab measuring at least 5 ¾ inches across the back of the shell are harvested, and all females must be returned; there’s no size limitations on red rock crabs.
