Fall Chinook fishing on Nehalem bay has been fairly slow, and action has been sporadic thus far, but that said there are some fish around. The Nehalem River has been slow as well. In addition, hatchery coho are showing up at the Nehalem hatchery in low numbers. So far fishing for them has been pretty slow. Anglers are reminded that there is NO wild coho retention in the rivers and bays this year, and that two rods are prohibited on all coastal rivers, tidewater, estuaries and bays.

Notice: In water construction activities on the Miami Foley Road bridge at Foss, will be restricting boat access on the Nehalem River. Boaters going downstream from Roy Creek should use caution.

Trout season is open, and there should be some nice cutthroat around. Remember the limit on streams and rivers is two per day over 8-inches.
