Trask River Report

Trask River - Tillamook , OR (Tillamook County)

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

The majority of the Chinook opportunity is still in the tidewater, but with a little rain this week there could be a few fish sneaking in. That said, it will take a significant freshet to move Chinook upriver in any decent numbers.  

A few coho have returned to Trask River hatchery, and this week’s rain may bring in a few more. So there should be more fishing opportunity for coho (adipose-fin clipped only) as well. 

Coastal cutthroat trout numbers were down on the Trask this year, according to resting pool counts that were completed recently by ODFW, but there are still fish around. The upper river including the North and South forks provide some of the best bank access, and cooler water temperatures up there may keep fish more active. 

The Trask River does not have a summer steelhead release, but it isn’t that uncommon to find a Wilson River fish in the Trask, several were observed during recent resting pool counts.
