Wilson River Fishing Report

Wilson River - Tillamook , OR (Tillamook County)

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

Fall Chinook fishing is fair. There should be fish available throughout the system. The Wilson can get low and clear fairly fast, so pay attention to water conditions and target it on the drop after rain events.

Bobber fishing bait, back-bouncing, back-trolling plugs or divers and bait, or casting spinners can all be effective methods. Anglers are reminded the Wilson River is closed to salmon fishing Aug. 1 to Dec. 31, upstream of Jordan Creek (River Mile 21.9).

Early winter steelhead should be arriving soon. A few summer steelhead are still being caught. Overall fishing is slow to fair.
