No more walking on water – Depoe Bay Harbor is getting dredged in September

Charter fishing boat sinks in Depoe Bay Harbor.

As you can see, a boat doesn’t sink completely in Depoe Bay Harbor. There’s a lot of mud and silt built up from the inflow of Depoe Bay Creek on the southeast corner of the bay. Local fishing captain Lorren Goddard recently made a point of how the bay has become less navigable by walking through the water right up to the fuel dock at the bay’s north end.

Well, dredging, is on its way. The city has contracted with Underwater Earth Movers to dredge out the whole bay. Then, on a separate contract, the sediment build up behind the check dam on Depoe Bay Creek that flows in to Depoe Bay will be dredged as well. All this is expected to start in mid-September.
