Trask River spring Chinook fishing picked up last week

Trask River - Tillamook , OR (Tillamook County)

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

The Salmon/Steelhead Bobber Fishing Rule (page 18 of the regulation booklet) went into effect May 1 on part of the Trask River. Angling is restricted to fly fishing or bobber fishing from the marker at Loren's Drift (River Mile 9) up to Cedar Creek boat slide (River Mile 10.9).‌

Trask River spring Chinook fishing picked up last week as the rain brought a fresh push of fish upriver. Best fishing has remained below the hatchery but there are fish throughout the fishery now. Fishing should continue to improve throughout the month. The Trask does NOT have a release of hatchery summer steelhead but the occasional stray has been caught over the past couple weeks.‌

Cutthroat trout fishing should be fair to good, with fish spread through mainstem and forks of the river. Just remember no bait is allowed May 22-Aug 31 in the North, South, and East Forks.
