Tillamook Coast: Spring Chinook Fishing in the Tillamook Bay

14 03 2017

Spring is around the corner, and so is some prime fishing out on the coast. From the article:

“Salmon is one of the most popular fish worldwide. But in the Northwest, Salmon is king.

In fact, you’ll often hear Chinook referred to as king salmon. This is a fitting title for a trophy cherished most by fishermen, chefs, and consumers alike. And while the spring runs might be smaller than those of the more famous fall season, the Tillamook Bay is home to some excellent spring Chinook fishing in May and June.”

Tillamook Coast: The Kings Mountain Trail

19 09 2016

If you’re looking for some exercise in the Oregon Coast Range, look no further than Kings Mountain. From the article:

“The trail that leads up to the summit of Kings Mountain is a 2.5-mile long hurt locker disguised as a hiking path. I’m sure there are some of you out there that would go merrily traipsing up the mountain, breaking nary a sweat while pausing only to take in nature’s glory. Well, that’s not most of us. The hike gains 2,500 feet over the course of that 2.5 miles. For those of you scoring at home, 1,000 feet of elevation gain per mile is quite the steady clip. And for the lion’s share of hikers out there, that’s a thigh-burning mettle-tester. And if you’ve got bad knees, bad balance, or bad luck, the hike down the mountain won’t be much of a picnic either. But as with most hikes of its ilk, there are rewards beyond caloric expenditure.”
