More than meets the eye

Fishing Rock

Fishing Rock, named for the ancients who fished there and the anglers who still find striped perch in abundance, draws lucky visitors who often stumble by accident upon the secluded headland’s layered, multi-colored geography three miles north of Depoe Bay.

On a day where the mist struggled to find land, amateur archeologist Nathan Cavota searched for signs of early humans or any other interesting relics — a horsefly trapped in agate, petrified bones, a ball of wax and a flap of aged leather — that he often shares with renowned Depoe Bay archeologist Dr. Ron Spores.
