Fall Chinook fishing on the Alsea river/bay opened Aug. 1, a few fish are being caught but overall the fishing has been slow. Concentrate your efforts low in the estuary and close to the ocean to catch the fish moving in and out on the tides. Expect numbers of fall Chinook entering the bays and estuaries to increase later in the month and into September. Best techniques include trolling herring/spinners and bobber fishing with bait.

Sea-run cutthroat will begin entering the lower river later this month and into the fall. These fish are very aggressive, respond well to flies and lures, and can be up to 20-inches long.

Trout fishing in streams and river is open. Fishing is restricted to artificial flies and lures, May 22- Aug 31.
