Crabbing2-Bill Lackner, Lincoln City

Lincoln City, OR – Stop by Siletz Bay and catch your own dinner.  From April through September 2014 the Lincoln City Visitor & Convention Bureau is offering free crabbing and clamming clinics led by local expert Bill Lackner.

The Siletz Bay at the south edge of Lincoln City is a prime spot for crabbing and clamming. The clinics provide participants with information and hands-on experience regarding regulations, harvesting methods, identification, and cleaning and cooking techniques.

The clamming clinics begin with a presentation at the Driftwood Public Library, followed by a hands-on group clam digging excursion during low tide.  Crabbing clinics take place from the shore of the bay and each participant is allowed to crab with up to three devices.

These free clinics are open to everyone and no registration is required.  “We thank the Driftwood Library and the City of Lincoln City for giving us the opportunity to share the wonderful bounty that Siletz Bay has to offer,” said Bill Lackner, local clamming and crabbing expert and clinic instructor.

Each participant over the age of 14 is required to have a shellfish license, which are available at several locations throughout Lincoln City.  Participants may bring their own harvesting tools or may purchase them on-site the day of the clinic.

Special clinics may be arranged for large groups, which can be set up through the Visitor & Convention Bureau.
