Saturday July 4, 2020 Port Orford Oregon
Traveling North July 2nd
I took off for Port Orford Oregon around 10 AM July 2nd. It was an all day drive up Highway 101.
New gate blocks my camp
Lucky they didn’t block this spot which was close by. It was a bit closer to the highway but would work out for the night.
I had an uneventful night which is always good.
The next day I drove on into Port Orford and drove over to Steve’s place to make some plans for doing some exploring.
After having a good bull session I drove on down to the Port Orford boat docks but it was closed because of the virus, to the public. Shoot.
Good camp spot
Exploring day, 4th
The next day Steve came by and we hopped in my van to go check out some places to hopefully fish.
I knew a place I’d been watching south of town so we drove down that way to have a look and to see if we could get down to the ocean from the highway.
This was the ocean view from the end of that little road. The next rocky point you see is out of the no fish zone and the rocky point is called Rocky Point and looked like a good fishing spot, but there was no fishing tackle allowed in the no fish zone so we couldn’t access that point from this spot.
This spot looks like it will work
We cold get down to the beach and go down to to Rocky Point on the left. If the tide was out we could fish in some of those rocks that are now under water. So it looks like we need to try this spot when we could catch a low tide.
It was good to find at least one spot we could try fishing from so now we had something to do.
Checking on another spot
There was another spot I wanted to check out too. Port Orford Head looked like there might be some good fishing from the ocean shores there if we could find a way down the cliffs to fish.
We drove up to the Coast Guard Museum parking lot and read some of the signs and maps and checked out the trails on the maps. Being the 4th of July the place was pretty busy so we decided to come back another time to do some exploring.
By this time Steve was tired out so we drove on back to my camp spot and rested up for the rest of the day making some plans.
Nice day exploring.
