Fall Chinook fishing is starting to pick up on the Yaquina

Yaquina River - Newport, OR

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

Fall Chinook fishing is starting to pick up on the Yaquina. Things should continue to improve as more fish move into the system waiting for the fall rains to move upstream to the spawning grounds.

Wild coho retention is allowed on the Yaquina River from Sept. 15 – Oct 15. The daily bag limit is one adult wild coho per day and one for the season. This is another “one and done” season for wild coho. Meaning you can only keep one adult wild coho from the Yaquina River for the entire 2022 season.

Trout fishing in streams closes on Oct. 31. Cutthroat trout are available throughout the Yaquina/Big Elk basins and provide good opportunity for summer/fall fishing
