North Coast Fishing Report and Forecast January 17th, 2020

North Coast Fishing Report – Well this will be a simple section. Rivers were largely blown out for most of the week, and only came in on Thursday for anglers to get back on. Not necessarily the case for smaller streams however, but we’ll go into better detail on this in just a bit. If…

North Coast Fishing Report – There was some decent opportunity for winter steelhead on the north coast, just prior to the most recent rain freshet, which should produce even more opportunity in what most deem the peak of the early returning winter steelhead run. Most anglers know what systems get these early returning run and…

North Coast Fishing Report and Forecast December 27th, 2019

North Coast Fishing Report – To the dismay of many, the north coast steelhead season isn’t off to a great start. Under ideal conditions, steelheaders didn’t make hay when the sun was shining this week as ideal conditions didn’t bring ideal catches on most of the north coast systems this week. It’s a steelheader’s dream,…

North Coast Fishing Report and Forecast December 20th, 2019

North Coast Fishing Report – Chinook fisheries remain closed, simplifying the reporting process for north coast systems. Tillamook Bay is no longer an option and even crabbing will be compromised given the influx of the long-awaited fresh water rain freshet. It’s steelhead time and few anglers have high expectations of easy limits any more, but…

North Coast Fishing Report and Forecast June 14th, 2019

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 and Forecast May 24th, 2019

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 10th, 2019

North Coast Fishing Report – Still early for spring Chinook, and late for steelhead although summer fish are starting to show on the Nestucca and Wilson River systems. And yes, spring Chinook are in the Trask River. Reports of success are few and far between however. After a fair start for spring Chinook at the…

North Coast Fishing Report and Forecast April 26th, 2019

North Coast Fishing Report – It’s all but over for winter steelhead on the north coast. The last rain freshet did bring in another surge of activity, but by late April, there are few fresh fish available. It’s spawning season right now, and it may be best to keep away from the tail-outs, where spawners…

North Coast Fishing Report and Forecast – April 19th, 2019

North Coast Fishing Report – Well, maybe it wasn’t as good as last year, but following the last significant rain freshet, action was ON for north coast steelhead once again. The river came into perfect shape on Saturday (coincidentally when the Columbia River spring Chinook season opened back up). Pro guide Rob Gerlitz (503-812-4950) reported…

North Coast Fishing Report and Forecast April 12th, 2019

North Coast Fishing Report – Like most of the Willamette Valley, the coastal streams too have been out of reach for most steelheaders. The river showed signs of coming into shape at mid-week, but shot back up with a mid-week rain system. Late season steelheaders have been anxious to get back on water to recreate.…

North Coast Fishing Report and Forecast April 5th, 2019

North coast fishing report – We are screaming towards the end of steelhead season, but given the previous year’s history, we could be in for another fair push of fish into North Coast systems. Action on the Tillamook two, the Wilson and Nestucca Rivers, had remained challenging in the prolonged low flows. That should all…

North Coast Fishing Report and Forecast March 8th, 2019

North Coast Fishing Report – persistent dry, cold weather continues to plague the coastal river systems, causing anglers to have to work hard for their winter steelhead quarry. It hasn’t been easy and since most steelheaders this time of year are in pursuit of a consumptive opportunity, the Nestucca has been a main target. The Wilson…

North Coast Fishing Report – It hasn’t been a barn-burner week on the north coast, but the Nestucca has come on somewhat strong in recent days. The Wilson continues to drop and clear, and fish are becoming quite skittish under this scenario. Most of the motivated anglers are headed south to the Nestucca as it has…

North Coast Fishing Report and Forecast February 22nd, 2019

North Coast Fishing Report – After a great couple of days of steelhead fishing late last week and through the weekend, catches have since slowed to a crawl despite effort remaining fairly robust. Starting with the Wilson, river conditions have remained fairly decent, but the big wad of fish has clearly moved to the upper…
