Fall Chinook fishing continues to be slow on the Yaquina. Fish are now spread throughout the estuary while they stage and wait for more significant rain. The forecasted rain and cooler weather should have fish on the move and pushing into the upper tidewater.

 ***Reminder*** There is no wild coho retention in the Yaquina for the 2021 season. Please practice good catch-and-release for wild coho, keep them in the water and release immediately.

Trout fishing in streams on the Yaquina/Big Elk remains open through Oct. 31. Check the regulations for open areas and bait restrictions.
