Marine Area 2-2 includes Grays Harbor east of a line from the tip of the north jetty to the south jetty.
Grays Harbor is a very popular small boat fishery, especially for large chinook and coho salmon. Major access points include the 28th Street Ramp, Westport, Ocean Shores, and Johns River. The protected nature of the bay allows small boats access to some exceptional salmon fishing. Most fishing occurs in September and early October before the commercial fishery commences.
