Access may be limited and many boat ramps and campgrounds on the Nehalem have been closed for the time being.

The Nehalem got muddy mid-week, but may green back up by the weekend. There are wild steelhead throughout the system.

Anglers are reminded that the upper Nehalem above the Hwy 26 bridge at Elsie closes to steelhead at the end of the month.

Catching and releasing a big wild winter steelhead is one of the best experiences I know of, but anglers are encouraged to treat these fish with care. The best practices for a good release are to not over fight the fish, and release them as quickly as possible without taking them out of the water.

Trout season will reopen on May 22, 2020.
