Enjoy the Local Catch

Surrounded by the Pacific Ocean, Columbia River and Willapa Bay, the Long Beach Peninsula and Pacific County are home to some of the richest fisheries on the West Coast. Enjoy seasonal and local fish at many of our restaurants or grab something fresh at one of our markets to take home. Dine on clams, oysters, bottom fish and salmon. Try something new the next time you're out and check out our restaurant page!

Remember its peak season. Many businesses have long wait times and/or hours of operation are changing constantly, so please plan ahead. Consider "to go" options or grab a bite at the market. For some great picnic spots check out our blog! 

Local Tip: Fishing is hot! There's still some mid-week availability. Check out our website for lodging options and information on local fishing charters!
