North Coast Fishing Report – Tillamook spring Chinook fishing is flatly in the toilet. One guide reported 3 days of effort for just 2 jack salmon. Jacks seem to be making up a large percentage of the catch, but there is an odd absence of 4-year old fish. Despite excellent tides for lower bay (north…

North Coast Fishing Report – Spring Chinook have arrived on Tillamook Bay. But just because we’ve heard of a few, doesn’t mean it’s explosive fishing. Even in the best of years, “explosive” is rarely a term we’ve used for Tillamook Bay fishing. Last week, on the weaker tide series, boats were catching fish in the…

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.
