Tillamook Bay Fishing Report

Chinook fishing is fair to slow on Tillamook Bay. Fall Chinook fishing slowed down a little last week but we are at the peak of the run, and there should still be plenty of fish moving through. Watch the weather and river conditions for the best opportunities. North Coast Rivers jumped up about 1.5 feet last night and are still on the way up, predicted to peak early Wednesday morning. Things should be getting back in shape by the weekend.

There are some large wild coho being caught; remember that coho fisheries are hatchery fish only (adipose fin clipped), and all unclipped coho must be released. Know how to identify coho by the white gum line at the base of the teeth, and the ribbed tail fin rays (Page 95 of the Oregon Sport Fishing Regulations). Don’t assume it’s a Chinook just because it’s large.

Due to a wetland restoration project between the tidewaters of the Trask and Wilson Rivers, public access to the Wilson River tidewater from the end of Goodspeed road, and to the Hospital Hole on Trask tidewater, are currently unavailable.
