Nestucca River and Three Rivers Fishing Report

Nestucca River - Pacific, OR

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

Fall Chinook fishing has been fair in the Nestucca Bay. The lower bay near Pacific City has been fishing best, but there should be fish throughout the estuary and moving with the tides.

Summer steelhead angling is fair to good. There are excellent numbers of fish throughout the system, with the highest concentrations now in the upper river. The river is still very low, but last weekend’s rains and cooler water temperatures should have these fish getting active.

Anglers are reminded that Three Rivers is closed to all angling from the mouth to the hatchery weir July 16 – Sept. 30.

Angling for cutthroat should be fair to good, sea-runs should be throughout the system. Try casting spinners or streamer flies in areas with cover, or dead drifting small presentations.
