Trask River - Tillamook , OR (Tillamook County)

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

The Trask has been very low and clear and as a result the fishing has been fairly slow. If the rain predicted for Saturday night and Sunday comes in as expected, conditions should be better early next week. The Trask is a mostly wild steelhead river (catch-and-release only for wilds) but is known to get some hatchery strays.
