National Fisherman

Two more areas off the coast become off-limits to fishing and other “consumptive” recreational pastimes and commercial fishing beginning Wednesday.
 
Restrictions begin at two new marine reserves at Cascade Head just north of Lincoln City and at Cape Perpetua south of Yachats, as well as slightly less-restrictive rules at marine protected areas north and south of both reserves and on the western edge of the reserve at Cascade Head.
 
All fishing is prohibited inside the boundaries of the reserves, and the taking of invertebrates as well as seaweed and wildlife also is banned. Along the shoreline, the prohibitions apply to areas that are marked in orange on the reserve/protected area maps.
 
The boundaries of both the reserves and the protected areas are defined by latitude and longitude.
