The Nestucca is getting a little on the low side

Nestucca River - Pacific, OR

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

The Nestucca is getting a little on the low side, but still has a tint of green. Fishing has slowed a little due to the conditions, but there are still plenty of fish being caught. The Nestucca River has a wild broodstock hatchery run, meaning the hatchery steelhead here are from wild origin. As such they mimic the wild run timing and there will be bright hatchery fish available well into April. This will be one on the best bets for hatchery winter steelhead for the remainder of the season, and there also is still plenty of catch-and-release opportunity for wild fish.
