Necanicum River Fish Report for 1-25-2023
Necanicum is Low and Clear This Week
Necanicum River - Seaside, OR (Clatsop County)
by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff
Boating Hazard: There is a boating hazard on the Necanicum River between Klootchie Creek and Hwy 101 ramps. A large tree has fallen across the river and is blocking boat access at 45.95611, -123.92663.
The Necanicum has hatchery winter steelhead available for catching but will be getting very low and clear this week. Stealthy tactics, light line and subtle terminal presentations can increase the odds of success is these conditions. Low water is also a good time to use lures that entice a territorial bite. Lastly, concentrate on deep pools and choppy water that provide cover.
Reminder: The South Fork Necanicum is closed to all fishing. This is the tributary that runs alongside the Sugarloaf Mainline.
Cutthroat trout fishing will reopen May 22, 2023.
