The Trask is in good shape right now
Trask River - Tillamook , OR (Tillamook County)
by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff
The Trask is a mostly catch-and-release river for winter steelhead, as there are no hatchery releases, although it does get the occasional stray. The Trask is in good shape right now but will be a little on the low side by the weekend. There are wild steelhead (catch-and-release only) throughout the system. All wild steelhead must be released unharmed. Avoiding long fights and handling will reduce stress on released fish.
