North Coast Fishing Report – High water kept most guides and anglers off of the larger systems this week but the Kilchis River fished fairly well for anglers over the weekend and early in the week.

North Coast Fishing Report March 10th, 2017

North Coast Fishing Report – It’s definitely been a high water week on the north coast. Anglers that would anxiously be fishing on the larger systems harboring hatchery broodstock fish this time of year were too high for productive fishing for much of the week. That put the pressure on smaller systems like the Kilchis, where…

North Coast Fishing Report – Following the significant rain event last weekend, sport anglers lined up the perfect conditions for a north coast steelhead round-up. As it turns out, it wasn’t knock-down, drag-out fishing as I had anticipated, but anglers did post fair numbers of fish from almost all river systems. Smaller systems of course…

North Coast Fishing Report – Recent rains have rivers just coming off of a major flooding event. Just what we needed when fry were emerging from the gravel. There went the 2020/2021 brood year of Tillamook and Nehalem watershed’s returning adult Chinook salmon population. But let’s try and see the bright side of the situation.…

North Coast Fishing Report – Steelheaders have been waiting for some time, for a return to quality conditions on the north coast. Those conditions finally came around early this week, but anglers had to wait out last week’s hydrograph spike in order to return to the river systems with any sort of confidence. Smaller rivers started fishing…

North Coast Fishing Report – Steelheaders didn’t have much opportunity to show off their skills this week. Between dangerous traveling conditions, super-cool temperatures that keeps fish less than motivated, and now, swollen rivers with all the recent rainfall and snowmelt, opportunities were slim.

North Coast Fishing Report – A recent rise in district river levels has put the Wilson and Nestucca systems out of order. Prior to the river rise, crowds were oddly sparse and fishing was fair to good. Must be some springers being caught in the valley? Weekend anglers produced fair results on many north coast…

North Coast Fishing Report – Following another rain freshet on the north coast, steelheaders found favorable fishing conditions on Sunday. Surprisingly however, the action did not last long. It seems this year, north coast rivers are fishing best in higher water conditions. On the Wilson, as previously mentioned, Sunday produced fair to good results for…

North Coast Fishing Report – Steelhead anglers on the north coast continue to find consistent success in what many consider the shoulder season.
