Fished the Necanicum this morning on the incoming tide. I ended up with 7 nice flounder. I haven't done that since I was a kid (a long time ago), and it was just as much fun as I remembered.

Any place to do that in the Newport-Lincoln City stretch of the coast?

I think I remember seeing people fish in Siletz bay for flounder before but maybe it was something else (near the crab dock)

feisty, I have caught flounder in the shallows over by Chinook jetty and up by the old ship above the bridge while fishing for sturgeon. I don't know about Ilwaco, but I don't see why not.

Fish_N_Russ, I used to fish for them in Siletz bay when I was a kid. We would fish off the dock at the boat rental place, and catch perch and flounder.

Thanks for the memories! It's so fun!

doryboy22,
I just went behind the High School. There is a small parking area and viewing area there and you can walk down to the river. I didn't start catching any flounder until the tide stopped running out. Before that I only caught a bunch of little crab. I used sand shrimp on a #4 gold hook with about 2 ounces of lead. Most of the fish were about a pound and a half, but one was about 2 and a half pounds.

Last year a guy caught a 7 pounder in that same spot. At least that what Trucke's told me.
