Nestucca River and Three Rivers Fishing Report

Nestucca River - Pacific, OR

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

The Nestucca is in good shape but we are at the time of year when steelhead are winding down and spring Chinook are just starting. A handful of Springers have already entered the river, and with the warmer weather, water temps should start to come up a bit, and fishing should improve. Bobber fishing bait, back bouncing, pulling divers and bait or plugs are all good techniques. . We should also see the first summer steelhead show up soon. Anglers are reminded that the upper river from Moon Creek (Blaine) to Elk Creek closed to steelhead fishing March 31 to protect spawning wild steelhead.

Fishing is slow on Three Rivers, but rumor has it the first few spring Chinook have been caught already.
