Nestucca River and Three Rivers Fishing Report

Nestucca River - Pacific, OR

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

Chinook fishing is fair in the bay, and some nice sized Chinook are being caught. Anglers are reminded that of the two Chinook salmon per day bag limit, only one may be a wild Chinook through Sept. 15th. In addition, only 5 wild adult Chinook salmon may be harvested from the Nehalem River and Bay and/or the North Fork Nehalem River from Apr 1 – Sept 15.

Trolling herring near the mouth of the bay will still be the most productive, but fish are being caught farther into the estuary. Sea-run cutthroat are available in tidewater and will begin moving upstream over the next few weeks. Casting spinners or streamer flies along banks or to cover should get some bites. Anglers are reminded that no bait is allowed above tidewater through August 31.
