Semi new to OR: L&C walk in?

Postby Loggingbeast » Fri Dec 28, 2012 8:06 pm

I moved to Newport area from Humboldt County, CA in the last year. I have been hunting the local coast, public lands in the valley and a few places in Eastern oregon. Is there anywhere on the L&C that a guy could walk in? I am constantly looking for new spots. Most my hunting trips have been scouting missions more so than hunting. As always not looking for secret spots but just some direction. Thanks.

Try another approach, best advice I can give you.
We have a few "slow" people around here but, I highly doubt you will find someone slow enough to share a walk areas(if they exist) for lower "C", anywhere.

I have lived in the Lower C area my whole life, not sure I know of one walk in spot that safe through an entire tide cycle.

X2 I'd go as far to say the whole C, multnomah channel, and most of the river mouths besides maybe the sandy.

On that same note your not gonna find the public access up there as you did in humboldt, like ocean ranch or the other type c's. now if you have a boat the columbia and surrounding waterways are gold mines, but they take ALOT of time to learn and understand how the columbia changes them.

Upper stuff there are some walk in spots. Above the damns is a whole other deal.

I have not hunted the columbia above the locks since I can remember so i default to tealer who is older and wiser then I, if I'm going that far I'm goin for geese in Central Valley. That's a long long drive from newport. Might as well go hit the snake at that point.

Not old, older. I'm 24 and I'm willing to bet your older then that, If not then I apologize for my assumptions. Meant no disrespect
