Nestucca River - Pacific, OR

The North Coast rivers went to action stage, and in some cases minor flood stage, on the Thanksgiving rains. As of this Monday they are still high and off color. Looking at the hydrograph it looks like they should be fishable, although still a little high, by the end of the week. Chinook fishing should be winding down on the Nestucca although there may still be a few late fish around.

The Lower Nestucca River and Three Rivers are one of the best opportunities for early hatchery winter steelhead. This part of the run usually peaks in December, and after all that Thanksgiving rain, there will likely be fish in the system as soon as it comes back in shape. With the high water, pulling divers and bait, plugs, or drift fishing/side drifting bait are all good options.
