The mainstem Nehalem is finally in “prime” condition, and should fish well for another week. There are no hatchery releases on the Nehalem mainstem, but there should be wild steelhead throughout the system.

The North fork has been slow, and effort has been light. The hatchery run is over, but there are wild fish available for catch-and-release throughout the system. Conditions are low and clear this week.

Please remember to handle and release wild fish with care! There are some great resources available in the regulation book (page 15) and on the ODFW website.
