Ocean coho reports aren’t glowing, but they’re not dismal either. Saltwater anglers are out after them and given the volatility of ocean weather lately, they’re trying for about everything they can. Nearshore halibut is on the menu too.

Central Coast reports have been fair for coho, few are limiting. It’s even slower out of Garibaldi. No one is real worried yet, it’s too early for that, but with water temperatures improving, anglers will be coming in with high expectations in the coming weeks. Chinook catches are rare.

There are some nearshore halibut falling out of Newport, Pacific City and Garibaldi/Nehalem in recent days.

Spring Chinook fishing is tapering, as if it ever got real good. There remains some effort in tidewater, but fish that were stacked in there a few weeks ago have migrated upstream. It’ll be sporadic fishing for the remainder of the month.

District rivers, as you might imagine, are low, clear and rather challenging to catch salmon or steelhead in right now.

Trolling or casting for sea-run cutthroat trout remains an under-utilized and under-appreciated fishery in most north coast estuaries this time of year.

Bottomfishing has gotten more challenging, but it varies by day, with lingcod action picking up slightly from previous weeks.

Ocean crabs are turning soft and that won’t get any better.
