PLAN YOUR OREGON COAST

Vacation

The South Coast Adventure Capital

Just because tourism peaks in the summer months here in Winchester Bay doesn’t mean we hibernate for the rest of the year! There’s plenty going on, whether it’s a free fishing weekend, a full charter day at sea, or a hop-happy Oktoberfest. 

 

See what’s happening seasonally around Winchester Bay so you can plan your vacation and explore the Oregon coast your way.

SPRING

The bay blossoms in the spring and everything comes back to life. It’s elk calving season. Days get longer. Plus, the coastal spring Chinook are running!

 

Once daylight savings kicks in, take advantage of the extra sunlight hours to enjoy the bountiful bay before tourism ramps up for the summer months.

Annual Events:

March, April, May

- U.S. Coast Guard Boat Checks

- Bay and razor clam season

- Dungeness and red rock crab season
