The Memaloose Point Boat Launch is a great location to launch a boat into the Tillamook bay to go fishing in the bay or adjacent rivers. When the salmon and steelhead fishing is going strong in the Tillamook Bay then this launch ramp will be full of trailers and boats like the picture in the Google street view or completly empty like the pictures in our album from the day we stopped by this boat launch. There is a pay station so make sure and pay for your boat and trailer to launch at this location. It is not manned so just put your money in the envelope and drop it in. This ramp being just outside of Tillamook is perfect for anyone that is traveling from Portland using Hwy 26. As you leave Portland take the slight left that leads to Hwy 6 which is the Wilson River road. Once inside Tillamook take a left on Main Ave which is Hwy 101 S. Take a right onto 3rd street towards Netarts. This will wind around out of town and you will want to take a right onto Bay Ocean and continue down Bay Ocean with the water on your right and the ramp will be on your right in about 1.5 miles.
The ramp has two lanes and lots of parking for trucks and trailers. Check out this location if you are looking for a great place to launch and go fishing. If you like to kayak and do sight seeing then this is a good choice during non peak fishing season as the ramp will not be congested and you can enjoy a nice peaceful day on the Tillamook bay pending the weather behaves.
