MJBSN2;
Hey, just wanted to welcome you to one of the best fishing forums in the west. Hope to see lots of posts from you on here after you find your fishing holes and buddies. Don't give up, it takes patience just like fishing sometimes when everyone here is out after that "last one". Keep posting,keep asking and keep checking.
The Wilson,eh? Well, I have never fished that particular body of water myself. But I know there are past posts that have some info in them. Please help yourself to any and all information including bait used,location,line and most anything you will need to get into the fish there. I heartily reccomend going through the archives to anyone who wants to overload on info.
In the meantime,how about it,the rest of you fisherfolks? Any advice for our new member??
Hope that helps...just know that you are welcome and that someone will answer as many questions as possible. Welcome again.

welcome.
ive just started fishing again the last couple months and most is the wilson.sinceits closer to home.
i like to vernture around. and have my favorites. I usually go in the middle of the week when its less crowded with people. believe me there are some nice fishies in there. good for trout right now till the 31st. salmon in the deep holes just hanging out waiting for rain.
theres a ew holes down from the forest service visitors center.

The wilson is close? I thought it was all the way near the coast and is a coastal river... How close does it come and how long of a drive is it? :think:

i would consider it close. its within an hour. there is fishing from the bay to the devils lake fork. and special regs on the south fork. there is also the trask and nestucca check your regs for the northwest zone. map on page 22 gives lots of info.
you can fish the main wilson as far as the s.f. which is mile post 41. i think.

I went on a field trip to camp magrueder and we past the wilson, it looked awesome, but it took like more than 2 hours... maybe cause it was a big fat bus full of big fat people... :lol: not... Or maybe cause you live in beaverton and not in LO ;)

dont know, but i would guess so. if it rains friday,sat and sunday. which is what the forecast is calling for in tillamook and beaverton, i would think that there will be a lot of water comming out of the costal range. :think:
fishfinger might have a better handle on this.
I know that last little front that came in it brought the wilson up about a foot.

CALLING FISHFINGER:whistle:

there's rain almost all week in tillamook county..almost..so water is going to run a lil high ..but you never know how much rain...and anyways the whole idea is to get more fresh fish.. lil high water is not gonna make a diffrence...in recent past years i've noticed that salmon in tidal water doesn't mind bit high water...i'll say weekend will be really good but then again there will be lot of people....you can give it a try on monday...yesterday there was a big tide and lots of fish caught in the bay..so i guess its arright

wilson holes

wilson holes

last year I hooked and landed 9 big nooks in less then 2 hrs. behind the burned down Guide Shop - all were snagged and released - corkie and yarn - no bait - it was fun but frustrating - use a 6ft. leader and hope you can floss their teeth --
