North Coast Fishing Report - With steelhead on the wane, coastal anglers are looking west for a bottomfish bonanza and the ensuing salmon season, likely to be quite productive. Offshore weather looks quite favorable for a foray this week and weekend so use caution, but sea bass, lingcod and good crabbing all await.

There's still a few steelhead being caught in the lower reaches of the Wilson and Nestucca systems. Go early, fish light gear and maybe you'll get lucky. Summer steelhead have yet to show and it's still a month early for spring Chinook too, although there are rumors of some around the Trask River.

Catch and keep sturgeon season downstream of Wauna won't happen for another month but it's never too soon to explore. The reach from the mouth of the Cowlitz to Wauna Powerlines (near Westport, OR) should be a good option for you to look at.


It's transition time on the Oregon Coast, but when summer kicks in, there will be plenty to fish for. Halibut, coho and more bottomfishing is the summer mainstay, anglers will just have to be patient a little while longer.
