With rivers still low and clear, steelhead success, and interest for that matter, is waning. No doubt, if we get another shot of rain (none on the horizon), there'll be one last shot of good steelhead fishing to be had. As for now, those late run winters are likely holed up in the tidewater reaches of each of the north coast systems now. The Nestucca and Wilson will remain late season favorites for hatchery fish.

Check any other system on the north coast before you go steelheading, some of them closed on April 1st.

No sign of Tillamook springers just yet, we're still a month away from any real hope.

Seas look rough for the week, but when you can get out, the fishing is quite good. Tamara Mautner of Garibaldi Charters (503-322-0007) reports the deep reef action is great right now. Some of the rockfish are running a bit small, but lings between 10 and 20 pounds are common, and the best eating size anyway! Crabbing is oddly awesome too, with 6 - 10 keepers per pot just outside of Tillamook Bay.

Check out this ling on ling action one of their boats snapped last week. The larger ling weighed in at around 26 pounds! I'm glad those things don't swim the nearby beaches!
