Tips on birding Bayshore Fishing Access
Enormous numbers of waterfowl often congregate in Maumee Bay in late fall and early spring. As many as 50,000 Lesser Scaup have been tallied, along with thousands of Canvasbacks and Common Mergansers. Bayshore Fishing Access is the best place to get a view of birds on the eastern side of the bay. This access is also close to the warm water release outlet from the nearby power plant, which keeps an open water area in winter. A footpath heads west from the parking lot and the brushy thickets in this area are always good for checking for migrant songbirds. At the path’s end, the discharge channel from the power plant is visible. Black-crowned Night-Herons often overwinter here and can be seen roosting in shrubs along the waterway.

About Bayshore Fishing Access
Dedicated on July 1, 1999, the 8.2-acre Bayshore Fishing Access site in Oregon includes a single-lane boat ramp and short dock to fish from. The water is very shallow in the nearshore. Depending on the water level, a portion of the shore to the immediate east of the launch may have an exposed muddy-sand beach. The portion of the shore to the immediate west of the boat launch is covered by a stone revetment which provides fishing access for the surefooted.

Restrooms on site, portable toilets.
