Despite ideal conditions, fishing for steelhead remains a one-a-day reality for those putting in the effort. The Wilson and Nestucca remain the mainstays and the crowds on the Nestucca have been impressive for such a mediocre return this year. It goes to show, cabin fever is certainly setting in. We just have to get out on the river!

In these dropping flows, plugs are becoming more productive, especially since everyone is still pitching bobbers and single eggs out there.

Other north coast systems such as the Trask and Nehalem are starting to produce better catches of wild fish, while the smaller, earlier peaking streams continue to peter out (Necanicum, NF Nehalem, Three Rivers and Highway 30 systems).

The Siletz has slowed a bit from a good couple of weeks, but it remains relatively productive compared to other north coast systems. The lower flows are making for better fishing in the lower reaches after the Moonshine run was so popular in recent weeks.

The Alsea remains unimpressive, but for knowledgeable, persistent anglers, it is worthwhile.

Seas may subside next week, but that forecast is too far out to be reliable. Lord knows, we’re all itchin’ for some fresh fish tacos…

Bay crabbing remains fair at best and tides won’t be ideal this week.

HERE’S a pretty good read on what’s happening with razor clams right now.
