Re: Florence bank fishing or crabbing info?
You can crab off the public docks in Old Town Florence. There is also a smaller public dock out toward the South Jetty.
As far as bank fishing goes, look at the trout planting schedule. A couple of lakes in the area, Elbow and Carter to the south get some heavy plants. Cleawox lake gets something like 15000 trout through out the year. Public dock on Siltcoos is a possibility, throw a bobber out with a worm to float it just above the weeds and let the wind move it slowly. Some bank fishing at Munsel and Sutton lakes to the North of Florence, plus some other smaller lakes I've not visited, don't know about bank access on those.
