Fall Chinook fishing has picked up on the Alsea river from the mouth up to the Drift Creek area. Anglers are catching fish every day as more fish move into the estuary staging for the fall rains.  

Anglers are reminded that due to low forecasted returns for the 2020 season bag limits have been reduced. The bag limit for the Alsea River is 1 wild Chinook per day and 5 per year for the 2020 season.

Remember, due to low forecasted returns for the 2020 season bag limits have been reduced. The bag limit for the Alsea River is 1 wild Chinook per day and 5 per year for the 2020 season.

Cutthroat trout fishing is open on the Alsea River until Oct. 31. Many of the larger sea-run cutthroat move up into the rivers this time of year following the salmon migration and spawning. This is a great time to target these often overlooked fish. Last updated 9/9/20.
