About CharlestonDeep-sea fishing is a way of life in Charleston. Halibut, snapper, tuna and other fish are abundant in the waters off Coos Bay, which is believed to be the largest Pacific oyster-producing estuary in Oregon. Charter boats conduct fishing, whale watching and scenic bay and ocean tours. Crabbing and clamming also are popular local recreational activities. The 91-acre Bastendorff Beach County Park is 2 miles west.
