Three Rivers is getting some hatchery steelhead back, and fishing picked up last week. Cedar Creek hatchery continues to recycle fish and fishing should be fair to good whenever the conditions are decent. Drift fishing is usually the go to technique on Three Rivers but casting spinners and float fishing can be effective, also.

The Nestucca jumped up over a foot on Monday night but by Tuesday was dropping. It should be back in shape soon and fish well through the weekend. Fishing has picked up a bit. In addition to the early hatchery fish, a few brood stock and wild fish are starting to show up. All the usual techniques such as side drifting, float fishing, and pulling plugs or divers and bait, should be effective.

Anglers are reminded that fall Chinook season closes Dec. 31 on the Nestucca.
