Kilchis River Fishing Report

Kilchis River - Idaville, OR (Tillamook County)

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

There haven’t been many reports from the Kilchis River yet, and surely it was slow last week, with the freezing air temps and cold water temps keeping fish lethargic, but based on the wild steelhead showing up in other basins there are probably some steelhead in the system. Better weather and good water conditions will be the key to finding them. With a high water event predicted for this week, the Kilchis will be a good to keep in mind, as it will undoubtedly be one of the first to come back into shape. These are mostly wild fish, so we recommend using appropriate gear for easy release and handling fish gently.
