North Coast Fishing Report April 24th, 2020

North Coast Fishing Report – With winter steelhead on the outs, and spring Chinook yet to ramp up, north coast anglers are in a holding pattern, especially given the fact that most boat ramps on the north Oregon Coast are currently closed. There typically isn’t a lot of activity at this time in April, but…

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 and Forecast April 26th, 2019

The last rain freshet did bring in another surge of activity, but by late April, there are few fresh fish available.

North Coast Fishing Report and Forecast June 15th, 2018

North Coast Fishing Report – It’s not looking good in Tillamook. Spring Chinook reports remain consistently slow, so slow that most fishing guides are headed to big blue, in pursuit of saltwater species such as sea bass, lingcod and halibut. It’s a long ride to the productive fishing grounds, but it seems to be the…

North Coast Fishing Report – I don’t care how good the steelhead fishing was last week, it’s over. The steelhead bite held on into last weekend however, but the freshness of the fish started a downhill slide. It was a surprising end to what most would call a mediocre season on the north coast. Anglers are…
