Nestucca River Fishing Report

Nestucca River - Pacific, OR

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

All of the north coast rivers blew out this past weekend, but are on the drop and should be in shape by the middle of this week. Following this freshet, fall Chinook fishing will probably drop off in the bay, but good numbers of fish should be available in the river. Bobber fishing bait, back-bouncing, back-trolling plugs or divers and bait, or casting spinners can all be effective methods.

Anglers are reminded that the Nestucca is closed to all salmon fishing above First Bridge (near Beaver) Aug. 1 to Dec. 31, and that there is NO wild coho retention in the rivers and bays this year.

Three Rivers should fish throughout the week. Fall Chinook should be available throughout the system.
