Cutthroat are available throughout the river

Kilchis River - Idaville, OR (Tillamook County)

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

Cutthroat are available throughout the river. Sea-run cutthroat fishing should be decent as fish are dispersed throughout distribution at this point. Cutthroat numbers appear to be good this year. The Kilchis is very low and gin clear, so stealthy tactics and light gear will up the odds of success.
