Dungeness crab is one of Oregon’s most prized culinary creatures. Learn how to catch your own at two crabbing workshops sponsored by ODFW on Aug. 8 and 9.
These one-day family-friendly workshops will take place in Newport, Ore. and will cover everything you need to know to get your catch from the ocean to the dinner plate. The $52 registration fee includes the use of all equipment, instruction/materials and lunch. Registration for children under age 14 is $12. Workshops both days begin at 8 a.m. and go until 4:30 p.m.
