Steelhead fishing on the Wilson has been fair

Wilson River - Tillamook , OR (Tillamook County)

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff


Steelhead fishing on the Wilson has been fair, but it is getting very low and clear, which may make fishing challenging this week. There are hatchery and wild steelhead (catch-and-release only for wilds) throughout the system. The Little North Fork and the South Fork of the Wilson closed to steelhead fishing on April 1.
