North Fork Nehalem River Report

Nehalem River- North Fork - Hamlet, OR

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

The North Fork Nehalem gets a run of hatchery coho and good numbers have been returning to the hatchery. However, the high water event moved the majority through the system and many of those left are getting dark, but there are still a few food quality fish around.

There are also a few Chinook available in the North Fork, and they are spread throughout the fishery.

The North Fork gets and early returning hatchery steelhead run, and the first two fish of the season showed up at the hatchery this week.
