BOTTOM FISHING Lingcod fishing was good out of Garibaldi with near limits. Elsewhere on the coast the average catch was one ling for every two anglers. Catches of rockfish were good in the south and south central coast with near limits. From Newport north, catches were about half that. Bottom fishing is good when conditions permit. Fishing for groundfish is now open at all depths.December 8, 2013 11:01 a.m. read more..
