Depends on boat size, but this is a very minimal exchange and I wouldn't worry about either bar. High at 5:38, both bars should be flat at any normal take-off time 5:00 - 7:00. Newport was flat today going out at 7:00 and coming back at 12:00. The ocean was beautiful.
In-coming, out-going, who knows. I fish the ocean when I have a day off, and head out as early as I can manage to talk all my crew into getting up (but I am the worst for late rising).
Newport gave up 123 lb. of Salmon to 3 of us today - see http://www.ifish.net/ubb/ultimatebb....;f=21;t=002264
. I was at Winchester last weekend and we did well, with most fish Coho in the 23 - 25" range. Threw back lots of natives and lost lots of fish too. Some big Chinooks were caught at Winchester also, but not the numbers I see coming from Newport, and I was not lucky enough to catch any.
If the conditions are like they were today, it should be a great day, but check here - http://www.boatoregon.com/Library/CoastalGuide.pdf
for bar crossing info for Newport/Winchester and heed their suggestions about staying out of certain areas like the reefs at Newport South and North of the jetty, and the North jetty (and tips) at Winchester.
Take a VHF as your lifeline to the Coast Guard, and GPS to navigate out and back in the fog that was present all day today. There are many other safety consideration to think about - be safe.
