Kilchis River Fishing Report

Kilchis River - Idaville, OR (Tillamook County)

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

Fall Chinook will begin to move into the Kichis River this month. The Kilchis is flow dependent and is currently very low, so it will take a fairly large rain event to bring the river up and get fish moving. The Fall Chinook run is down this year, so expect fishing to be slow. Bobber fishing bait, back bouncing, back trolling divers and bait, and large plugs are all good river techniques for fall Chinook.

Sea run cutthroat are present in good numbers on the North Coast this year, and anglers will find them throughout the basin.
