North Coast Fishing Report August 23rd, 2019

North Coast Fishing Report – With ocean coho and now tuna the main focus for north coast anglers, most effort is reliant on ocean weather. And speaking to that dilemma, ODF&W has now opened the South of Falcon halibut fishery to a 2 fish bag limit since rough ocean weather has kept the halibut fleet…

North Coast Fishing Report August 16th, 2019

North Coast Fishing Report – It’s been a bit of a downer week for north coast anglers. With Buoy 10 in full blossom, interest in other north coast fisheries is underwhelming. The South of Falcon ocean coho season seems to have fizzled, and so has the Nehalem bite that impressed a few anglers last week.…

North Coast Fishing Report and Forecast August 9th, 2019

North Coast Fishing Report – It’s been a bit of a disappointing week on the north coast last week. With rough weather (until recently), the all-depth halibut opener (August 2 & 3) didn’t prosecute well, the coho seem scarce and of course the freshwater fisheries are challenging. The one bright spot recently has been the…

North Coast Fishing Report and Forecast August 2nd, 2019

North Coast Fishing Report – With spring Chinook action over (did it ever begin?) and summer steelhead fishing poor, anglers remain focused on big blue and recently, that too has been challenging. I don’t think it’s not that the fish are present, we have wildly fluctuating ocean water temperatures which seem to be turning the…

North Coast Fishing Report and Forecast July 26th, 2019

North Coast Fishing Report – With freshwater opportunities on the ropes, anglers will continue to look west for salty sea options of all variety. Albacore, halibut, bottomfish, salmon and crab are a great start. Starting with salmon, action has been consistent for every port on the Oregon Coast. The best coho port remains Newport and…

North Coast Fishing Report and Forecast July 19th, 2019

North Coast Fishing Report – All eyes have been facing west as the saltwater options have been the better options as of late. Spring Chinook and summer steelhead are on the ropes. Prior to the ocean getting angry, coho fishing had been hit or miss since last Wednesday’s wind storm that warmed the offshore waters…

North Coast Fishing Report July 12th, 2019

North Coast Fishing Report – Calm seas have brought about a larger effort for offshore salmon and bottom fish. The main focus on the north coast is now in the great salt chuck. Spring Chinook opportunity is all but over. So let’s just get that out-of-the-way. Tillamook Bay as well as the Nestucca River are…

North Coast Fishing Report July 5th, 2019

North Coast Fishing Report – Same stable weather pattern, same, stable fishing pattern. Spring Chinook fishing remains ho-hum on the north coast, with Tillamook remaining the best (but far from good) option. Rivers remain low, and action even lower. There remains a few biters on the outgoing tide in the upper bay however. It’s quite…

North Coast Fishing Report and Forecast June 27th, 2019

North Coast Fishing Report – Effort is beginning to taper, but hard core salmon trollers will still by plying the waters of the upper bay on this next minus tide series. It’s been tough fishing as of late, that won’t change anytime soon, I’m confident of that. The low tide exchanges had anglers focused on…

North Coast Fishing Report and Forecast June 21st, 2019

North Coast Fishing Report – Spring Chinook fishing remains predictably challenging. Low district rivers are keeping springers in the estuary, but there just aren’t that many springers in the system. The focus lately has been in the upper bay and a few fish are being caught every day, with a sporadic good day here and…

North Coast Fishing Report – It’s still relatively quiet on the spring Chinook front. As a matter of fact, fishery managers have a growing concern that the hatchery may not make broodstock this season, so they closed the hatchery hole on the Trask River effective Thursday. HERE is the official press release. The return is…

North Coast Fishing Report and Forecast June 7th, 2019

North Coast Fishing Report – Yes, it’s still spring Chinook season in Tillamook County, but if you find yourself coming across one, you had better consider a lottery ticket because you’re one of the rare ones. A minus tide this week will keep anglers focused on upper bay fishing, where catches have been light despite…

North Coast Fishing Report – It’s still doldrums fishing in the Tillamook district. Although we’re in a historical peak period for springers in Tillamook Bay and the Trask River, catches in recent years have not been impressive. That has been the case this year, with just an occasional fish being taken on the recent hold-over…

North Coast Fishing Report – Still a bit quiet on the spring Chinook front for Tillamook County anglers. The big minus tide series this week put anglers in the upper reach of Tillamook Bay in anticipation of a spinner bite on the last half of outgoing tide. Anchor fishermen using plugs also anticipated some opportunity;…

North Coast Fishing Report and Forecast May 17th, 2019

North Coast Fishing Report – Reliable reports of spring Chinook are indicating that the run is underway in Tillamook Bay. Fair catches of springers on the last half of outgoing tide at Memaloose early this week (Monday and Tuesday) indicate that there will be fish returning to the system this year. From a reliable resource,…
