Nestucca River and Three Rivers Fishing Report

Nestucca River - Pacific, OR

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

Spring Chinook fishing has been slow to fair on the Nestucca, depending on the day. There’s more water than usual for this time of year, but the river is still getting low. Concentrating effort in the lower River will probably produce the best results. Bobber fishing bait, back bouncing, pulling divers and bait or plugs are all good techniques. Summer steelhead are available throughout the system, and a few are being caught.

Spring Chinook fishing on Three Rivers has been slow. There are some fish being caught, but the action is sporadic. There are also a few summer steelhead being caught. Anglers are reminded that “Anti-Snagging Gear Restrictions” (page 16 of the Oregon Sport Fishing Regulations) are in effect from May 1 to July 15, and from the Cedar Creek Hatchery deadline to the marker downstream of Gauldy Mtn. Road Bridge is youth fishing only (ages 17 and under) from June 1 to July 15.

Trout season opened May 22, and there should be some nice cutthroat around. Remember the limit on streams and rivers is two per day over 8-inches.
