North Coast fishing report

The Guides Forecast

The Guides Forecast

Steelheaders on the north coast had great fishing last week, with broodstock fish starting to show up on north coast streams. Rivers are cresting at the time of this writing, with smaller streams coming into shape by Saturday, larger systems by Sunday. Action should be good when flows subside.

Smaller stream, early season steelhead should be on the spawn right now, fisheries on the NF Nehalem, Necanicum and Klaskanine Rivers, as well as Big and Gnat Creeks have peaked and will start fading quickly from here. There should be one last chance at fresh fish by Saturday if hydrological models are accurate.

Winter weather kept most anglers home last week, but conditions improve this weekend and into next week.

A small window of opportunity may exist over the weekend for those wishing to recreate in the coastal estuaries or even the ocean. Estuaries are currently inundated with freshwater so crabbing will likely be challenging.
