Nehalem River Fishing Report

Nehalem River - Nehalm, OR

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

There are fall Chinook being caught on Nehalem bay but the action has been sporadic thus far. The Nehalem River is open for Chinook, we haven’t heard many reports yet, but with the rain there should be a few fish sneaking into the river. In addition, hatchery coho should be showing up soon. Anglers are reminded that there is NO wild coho retention in the rivers and bays this year, and that two rods are prohibited on all coastal rivers, tidewater, estuaries and bays.

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.
