Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Nehalem Bay is located on the Oregon Coast approximately 90 miles west from Portland. It is a relatively small estuary considering the watershed that it drains but it is extremely productive for chinook and coho salmon. This tech report will focus on the summer and fall runs of chinook salmon that enter the bay. This publication will teach you when and where to fish for these salmon and what techniques continue to be consistent producers throughout the years.
