The Trask is Still a Little Slow and Water Conditions are Very Low Above Tidewater

Trask River - Tillamook , OR (Tillamook County)

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

The Trask is still a little slow and water conditions are very low above tidewater. But it picked up a bit this week and small numbers of fish being caught somewhat consistently. A fair number of steelhead have been observed at the hatchery hole. Staying in the estuary or lower river below Trask hatchery will be the best bet.

Anglers are reminded that gear restrictions are in place May 1 to July 31 from the marker at Loren’s Drift (River Mile 9) to the Cedar Creek boat slide (River Mile 10.9); see the Salmon/Steelhead Bobber Fishing Rule on page 18 of the Sport Fishing Regulations.

The North and South Fork open for cutthroat trout fishing this Saturday, May 22 and there should be some around.
