Nestucca River and Three Rivers Fishing Report

Nestucca River - Pacific, OR

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

No new report for Chinook fishing on the Nestucca this week but there have been plenty of fish showing the past couple weeks, and a few were caught. The lower bay near Pacific City has been fishing best but there should be fish throughout the estuary, moving with the tides, and with last weekend’s rain there should be a few sneaking up the river.

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.
