North Coast Fishing Report – The Buoy 10 fishery is underway, and although some coho are starting to show, it’s primarily a Chinook show and they are in! Hopefully you’re seeing our detailed fishing reports via YouTube. If you’re an avid Buoy 10 angler, this is the time to invest in a Steelhead or Chinook Membership to get the detailed FORECAST for the next day’s opportunities.

An emergency Chinook closure was enacted for Buoy 10 anglers starting Friday. It’s certainly disappointing, but we have to continue to do our part to protect certain stocks of Chinook in jeopardy on the lower (and upper) Columbia River Basin. Coho numbers remain robust, but anglers are likely to still seek Chinook action on the lower Columbia in the remaining above Tongue Point fishery. Good tides this weekend will likely produce good catches.

The ocean north of Cape Falcon will close after Sunday, the quota is projected to have been met by then. The ocean south of Cape Falcon will close after Saturday with likely 40% of the quota still remaining. The next ocean coho opportunity will start on September 10th for ANY 2 salmon, including wild coho.

Halibut fishing remains disappointing and tuna are FAR offshore. Anglers are having sporadic success for both species.

The Nehalem system is still the best bet for coastal Chinook, but fish are also available in Tillamook Bay. The Nestucca, Salmon, Alsea and Siletz are soon to follow.

Bay crabbing remains good in some estuaries, Tillamook Bay in particular.
