Nestucca River - Pacific, OR

Fall Chinook fishing in Nestucca Bay picked up this past week, with some decent fish caught. Fishing should continue to improve in the bay and tidewater throughout the month, and until we get rain to move fish upriver. 

Summer steelhead fishing has been slow, but with this week’s rain it might be a good opportunity. The rain and change in temperatures can get fish that have been holding and lock-jawed more active, and increase the odds of hooking up. The upper river seems to be holding the most fish, but there are fish throughout the system.  

Sea-run cutthroat should be available throughout the Nestucca and Little Nestucca basins. 

According to the Oregon Department of Transportation Farmer Creek Wayside and boat ramp will be closed late this summer through fall of 2020 due to construction associated with the Hwy 101 realignment
