From late spring through early fall, stop by a crabbing clinic in Lincoln City. Everyone is welcome and no registration is required. Enjoy the wonderful bounty that Siletz Bay has to offer!
2019 Crabbing Clinics
Prior to crabbing, participants will meet at the pavilion located at the end of SW 51st Street in the Historic Taft District of Lincoln City for a brief orientation. The orientation will familiarize participants with Oregon’s crabbing regulations, harvest methods, identification, and cleaning and cooking techniques.
Parking is available between Mo’s Restaurant and the pavilion. Flat access to the bay is available at the end of SW 51st Street, which is ADA compliant.
Each crabber is allowed to crab with up to 3 devices. Crabs snares used with fishing poles work well but not nearly as well as folding crab traps.
Each crabber 12 years or older will need:
• Shellfish license (available at locations listed below)
• Crab traps* or 5 gallon bucket*
• Grab gauge*
• Large package of chicken legs for bait*
• Pair of gardening type rubber gloves to protect your fingers*
*NOTE: Materials and licenses should are not available at the clinic.
