Nehalem Fishing Report

Nehalem River - Nehalm, OR

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

There are a few summer/fall Chinook being caught on Nehalem bay but the action has been fairly slow and sporadic thus far. The Nehalem River is open for Chinook, but there haven’t been any reports of Chinook caught above tidewater yet. Anglers are reminded that though Sept. 15 only one wild Chinook may be retained per day.

Notice: In water construction activities on the Miami Foley Road bridge at Foss, will be restricting boat access on the Nehalem River. Boaters going downstream from Roy Creek should use caution.

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.
