"Oh, the fish used to jump onto my boat... Until the Prescotts and their finance fiends snapped up harbor rights..." — R.J. MacReady in "Out of Time"
The Harbor is the local port in Arcadia Bay. It has changed a lot in the five years since Max Caulfield had last resided in the town in 2008. Climate change has been altering the coastline over the last ten years, affecting the fish and fauna. Salmon, trout, and bass have died and migrated from its waters, and it is believed that even the clams are dying. This has impacted heavily on the town's fishing industry, and the fishermen who have made the harbor their home for many years also blame the decline of their industry on the Prescott family who have been buying up much of the town as well as snapping up harbor rights with their "finance fiends."
The Arcadia Bay Beacon newspaper describes the bay area as "a quaint fishing and tourist nook on the Oregon coast."
Every month, the Two Whales Diner holds a "Two Whales Diner Fishing Awards" where there are winners every month taking pride of place on a "Fishing Wall of Fame." Some of the fish that can be found in the harbor are:
- White sturgeon
- Steelhead trout
- Chinook salmon
