North Coast Fishing Report and Forecast June 5th – June 11th, 2015

North Coast Fishing Report – It’s just a bit past peak spring chinook season on the north coast. Anglers are out in earnest as Chinook are slow to migrate upstream in the current low water scenario. Tillamook Bay anglers remain persistent with the bulk of the effort shifting to the upper bay on the current…

Columbia River Fishing Report and Forecast June 5th – June 11th, 2015

Columbia River fishing report – Nothing much has changed on the mainstem Columbia. Passage numbers at Bonneville remain at around 2000 Chinook a day and catch rates have slightly improved in the Columbia River Gorge. Weekend anglers reported to ODFW fish checkers, around a half of a fish per boat. Those are pretty good catch…

North Coast Fishing Report and Forecast May 29th – June 4th, 2015

North Coast Fishing Report – The springers are in. For about a week now, spring Chinook fishing has been consistent but far from explosive. Late last week, the upper bay produced fair catches throughout the outgoing tide but action began to taper over the weekend. By then, trollers had switched focus to the lower estuary…

North Coast Fishing Report and Forecast May 22nd – May 28th, 2015

North Coast Fishing Report – Spring Chinook have arrived in Tillamook Bay. Although it is far from consistent, anglers in upper Tillamook Bay are starting to see some decent flurries of catches. Good bites were reported late last week and trollers fishing the upper bay on Thursday morning (5/21) reported consistent catches for much of…

Columbia River Fishing Report and Forecast May 22nd – May 28th, 2015

Columbia River Fishing Report – effort remains low for most Columbia River fisheries but those that are participating are certainly not all that impressed with the results. Salmon, steelhead, shad and sturgeon are all strong possibilities on the mainstem but none are producing gangbuster results. Pro guide Dan Ponciano (360-607-8511) fished just a few days ago,…

North Coast Fishing Report and Forecast

North coast fishing report – As we enter peak season for the Tillamook region, following last years midseason rain freshet, I had a bit of worry that the recent storm system may produce an interesting scenario. Last year, a mid-May system pushed the bulk of the run into the Trask River keeping bay anglers from…

North coast fishing report – Although still light, spring Chinook effort on Tillamook Bay is increasing. As we near the peak three weeks of the season (mid May through the first week of June), anglers are getting anxious for the high quality fish that will soon dominate effort in the district. There is justifiable excitement…

North Coast Fishing Report

With spring chinook still waiting in the wings, north coast anglers have kept their focus elsewhere. Although spring chinook are being reported on occasion from the Trask River and Tillamook Bay itself, anglers should not be in pursuit of fish with high expectations. We are still 2 weeks away from the start of peak season.…

North Coast Fishing Report and Forecast

North Coast Fishing Report – With steelhead no longer a viable option and spring chinook yet to make a strong showing, most anglers will remain focused on Willamette Valley fisheries. That said, locals really enjoy this time of year because they stand a reasonable chance at getting a quality fish with little competition in their…

North Coast Fishing Report – With steelhead on the way out and spring chinook fishing ramping up, focus will next turn to spring chinook which are on the horizon for Tillamook Bay anglers. Some spring chinook have already been caught in the region, with the Trask River yielding the season’s first reported ones. Jim Skarr,…

Columbia River Fishing Report – It’s peak season on the mainstem Columbia and only a few open days left. First things first, on a joint state compact call Wednesday afternoon, the states of Oregon and Washington decided on an additional 2 days of opportunity; Saturday, April 11th (the day after the originally modeled closure date)…

North Coast Fishing Report- All signs indicate a winding down of steelhead action on the north coast. Our most detailed report comes from pro guide Kent Anderson (503-550-6303) where he has been working the Nestucca with consistent success. Kent reports a significant downturn in success lately however. Since the first obvious rain freshet (mid-March), it’s…

North Coast Fishing Report – Following a week of relatively good fishing steelhead fishing, it appears as if the winter run is winding down. Frankly, that’s a bit surprising to me, given the magnitude of the run this year. I fail to believe that we’ve seen the last of the good winter steelhead run! Recent…

North Coast Fishing Report – These are the times we’ve been waiting for! Steelheaders early this week rejoiced in the recent rain freshet; a characteristic that’s been unusually absent this month and all season actually. Needless-to-say, the action has been all that one could have hoped for. The big north coast two, the Nestucca and Wilson…
