Trask River Fish Report for 2-23-2023
Fishing was slow on the Trask last weekend, but there were a few fish caught
Trask River - Tillamook , OR (Tillamook County)
by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff
Fishing was slow on the Trask last weekend, but there were a few fish caught. It will be low and clear by this coming weekend; at least until the rains predicted for late Sunday arrive.
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. 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.
The forks will remain low and clear this week, and cold water temperatures may stall fish movement into them. That said, there are wild steelhead (catch and release only) throughout the open areas.
The North Fork Trask is open to steelhead fishing from the mouth to Bark Shanty Creek until March 31, 2023. It is closed to all fishing upstream of Bark Shanty Creek until Mary 22, 2023.
The South Fork Trask is open to steelhead angling from the mouth to Edwards Creek until March 31, 2023. It is closed to all fishing upstream of Edwards Creek until May 22, 2023
Cutthroat trout fishing in streams will reopen May 22, 2023.
Trask river levels and predictions are available here.
