Looking ahead, Lincoln City peppers its summer with the chance to how to harvest the bounty of the Oregon coast with Crabbing and Clamming Clinics in Lincoln City. Led by local expert Bill Lackner, these clinics are a great way to learn how to catch fresh Dungeness crab and purple varnish clams.

This will be Lackner's fourth season hosting the Crabbing and Clamming Clinics, and he is prepared for another fun and educational program.

"This is my passion," Lackner said. "I love teaching visitors of all ages how to do this, especially the kids. At first, they are a little intimidated by it. But after I show them how fun and easy it is, then their faces light up. There is nothing more rewarding than watching a kid feel a sense of accomplishment. These clinics are great character building exercises for kids and kids at heart."

The first Crabbing Clinic will be Wednesday June 8, 9 am, at the SW 51st street beach access (near Mo's Restaurant) in the Historic Taft District of Lincoln City. Each participant over the age of 12 will need a five-gallon bucket, a large package of chicken legs for bait, a pair of rubber gloves, and a valid shellfish license. Crab traps and gauges can be purchased from Bill at the clinic. Prior to crabbing, participants will meet for a brief orientation on crabbing regulations, harvest methods, identification, and cleaning and cooking techniques.

The first Clamming Clinic is Thursday June 9,10:30 am, beginning with a presentation at Driftwood Public Library located at 801 SW Hwy 101 on the second floor of City Hall. Talks last approximately 45 minutes, followed by clam digging on Siletz Bay. Participants will need a five-gallon bucket, a pair of gloves, and a shellfish license. Clam bags and shovels will be available for purchase on site.

As he looks back on four years of hosting the Crabbing and Clamming Clinics, Lackner thanks the City for supporting him.

"Lincoln City is a leader in supporting recreational opportunities like crabbing and clamming,” he said. “When we started these clinics, we wanted to show off the wonderful bay-front here in town and all of the great things you can do on it. Now it has taken on a life of its own, and I am thankful that the City continues to support it."
