It wasn’t an impressive week for north coast steelheaders. It started off pretty good late last week, but the Wilson tapered quickly with the Nestucca only showing slight signs of productivity for the week’s effort most guides put in. There’s still a lot of season to go, but anglers will have to work for them this year it appears.

The Trask had some fish early this week too, but like the other systems, it tapered quickly.

Other early season streams are booting out spent steelhead, making for good sport, but poor table fare. The NF Nehalem, Necanicum, Three Rivers, Big and Gnat Creek and the Klaskanine River fall under this category. The mainstem Nehalem didn’t quite come into shape for productive fishing this round but some fish were had around tributary mouths.

The Siletz is becoming more consistent, but the cold weather snap will stall the bite here.

The Alsea has been mediocre all season, but should improve when temperatures do in the coming weeks.

Anglers that got offshore for bottomfish in recent days didn’t regret it. Decent crabbing and excellent bottomfishing was had by all. That window may not open up again anytime soon.

Bay crabbing remains fair with better tides this weekend, but you won’t appreciate the weather.
