Winchester Bay is known as one of the best crabbing areas in the region. For a good time with friends or family, try crabbing for fresh dungeness crab.  Our crabbing season is open all year and you can crab off the docks or by boat in the bay.  Trap rentals and bait are available locally.   Come in August or September during the Captain Umpclaw Crab Bounty Hunt and catch the Captain for a chance to win the $5000 cash bounty!
