The ocean is forecasted to be windy this week, with lots of “Small Craft Advisories” due to come out, limiting the ocean opportunity for salmon, halibut, bottomfish and crab. Anxious anglers will have to wait for safer conditions, but when seas calm, it should be game on.

There are indications that bottomfishing has become more challenging, but halibut and salmon fishing should be good when the weather allows. Ocean crab are starting to molt, so finding a quality one may become more challenging.

Tillamook Bay anglers have a soft tide series to look forward to this weekend. Trolling herring along the inside of the jaws may be one of the better district options on the north coast. Target high tide and the last half of outgoing.

River fishing on the Trask and Three Rivers improved with last week’s rain freshet, but levels are back down to summer lows. Sea-run cutthroat in the tidewater reaches of most north coast systems, along with the estuaries themselves should prove productive for the few participating in this fishery.

The lower Columbia should produce some summer Chinook as the westerly deadline is now the Astoria/Megler Bridge. High tide above the bridge with bait or spinners could produce fair catches. Catch and release sturgeon fishing remains good in the Astoria area, with most fish over 50″ in length.
