What A Catch: The Oregon Seafood Hat Trick

With Stephanie Inn Executive Chef Aaron Bedard and Expert Angler & Guide David Johnson

Date: Tuesday July 25, 2017

If you love fishing or just love seafood, this adventure is for you. Spend a day following the rhythms of the tides as we join Stephanie Inn Dining Room Executive Chef Aaron Bedard and expert Guide David Johnson to troll for salmon, Oregon Dungeness crab and clams. With house-made scones and hot coffee in hand, you’ll head out to Nehalem Bay in our Mercedes van, just 20 minutes south of the Stephanie. We’ll troll for the iconic Chinook salmon and drop crab pots to catch some fresh Oregon Dungeness crab.

As our pots do their magic (and tides permitting), we’ll head to a sandy stretch of beach, home to many clam varieties, including the tangy East Coast Butter and Purple Varnish clams. A little digging is required but the results are worth it. With our catch in hand, we’ll have the makings for a perfect ocean’s bounty feast in a spectacular oceanfront locale.  Oregon Dungeness crab, fresh salmon, local oysters, bright salads, clams, baked breads, stellar Oregon wine and growlers of frosty Public Coast beer round out the feast.
