My girlfriend and I are going camping next weekend at nehalem falls and I would love to catch us some dinner. I recently moved here from the Texas gulf and am a virgin to river fishing for trout. The only trout I have ever caught were speckled and sand trout in the gulf of mexico. I have read posts here concerning the nehalem river, but i don't know the area well at all. Is the fishing on the nehalem good this time of year? Is the fishing better above or below the falls? What lures or techniques work best? I have an assortment of spinners, (blue fox, rooster tail, etc.) and am curious if they are the way to go or if I should try powerbait. Like I said, I have no clue when it comes to river trout fishing. Any info, pointers or tips would be greatly appreciated. Thank you all very much.
