North Coast anglers haven't had much opportunity in recent days. Strong NW winds have kept much of the fleet at bay, including the all-depth halibut opener that took place today. There were some boats that went offshore for halibut out of Garibaldi, but results were poor, really poor actually. Newport likely fared better, but given the wind waves thrashing big blue today, I'm not sure anyone had fun.

Bottomfishing remains productive, but again, strong winds kept much of the fleet in port. Ocean crabbing remains good, and crabbers working Tillamook Bay have been pleased with their results.

Spring Chinook fishing is certainly underway in Tillamook Bay, but no one is expecting terrific results. There's a few fish being caught each day, either in the upper bay in the morning, or the lower bay in the afternoon. Either way, it's challenging but we're entering peak season for the next 4 weeks just now.

District rivers remain too low to have high expectations, the region is in desperate need of precipitation.

Good trout fishing remains on the north coast, the trout stocking trucks will remain busy for the next several weeks.
