Nestucca River and Three Rivers Fishing Report

Nestucca River - Pacific, OR

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

Fishing was slow on the Nestucca last weekend due to high water and marginal conditions. It should be dropping into prime shape by the end of the week and through the weekend. This is the time of year to be on the Nestucca and there should be brood stock hatchery fish and wild fish throughout the system. All the usual techniques such as side drifting, float fishing, drift fishing, or pulling plugs or divers and bait should be effective. During high water use brighter colors and larger presentations.

Three Rivers hatchery fish should be winding down this time of year but this small tributary will drop and clear much quicker than the Nestucca and could be a good bet for bank fishing this week.
