Marine Area 2
WESTPORT-OCEAN SHORES

Marine Area 2 encompasses the area from Leadbetter Point at the north end of Longbeach north to the Queets River.Westport is the premier Chinook fishery on the coast, with over half the total Chinook caught here.  Marine Area 2 is accessed primarily from the Port of Westport, with a few anglers launching at Ocean Shores.  Boat launch lines can be fairly long here on a weekend morning when the fishing is good.

The Grays Harbor bar is very dangerous. Anglers should watch the weather and tides carefully. Only go out when you know the conditions will allow you to cross the bar safely, both going and coming back. Experienced boaters plan their trips to avoid crossing the bar during peak outgoing tides.
