Nestucca River Fish Report for 10-19-2022
Fall Chinook fishing has been fair to good in Nestucca Bay
Nestucca River - Pacific, OR
by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff
The wild coho fishery on the Nestucca basin closed after Oct. 15. There will be no retention of wild coho allowed for the remainder of 2022.
Fall Chinook fishing has been fair to good in Nestucca Bay. Most of the fishery has been in the estuary thus far, but rain predicted for late this week and early next could be enough to get a push of fish into the river.
Summer steelhead fishing continues to be fair. There are fish scattered throughout the fishery and as the fall nights cool water temperatures some of the fish that have been holding may get more active and willing to bite, and the coming rain should help as well. We continue to get reports of fish being caught on the upper river.
REMINDER: First bridge is the deadline for fall Chinook fishing on the Nestucca. Elk Creek is the deadline for all fishing (trout and steelhead) on the Upper Nestucca, and it is closed to all fishing upstream of that point.
River levels and predictions for the Nestucca are available here.
