Newport is the center of tourism in coastal Oregon, and beautiful Yaquina (often called Newport) Bay attracts many water enthusiasts as well. This estuary drains the Yaquina River, and once attracted settlers for its rich oyster beds; today it is fishermen, kayakers and whale watchers who are drawn here. Yaquina Bay can offer excellent crabbing and clamming in season. Many anglers depart from here to fish offshore for tuna and halibut, as well as salmon. Whether they’ve found success or not, two of the mid-coast’s great landmarks, Yaquina Head Lighthouse and the Yaquina Bay Bridge, beckon the fishermen back to port, making for a most scenic return.
