Although the any 2 salmon season ended with a thud, anglers are still allowed to catch and keep a wild coho in Tillamook and Nestucca watersheds on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Check the regulations carefully before heading out, however. Nehalem remains CLOSED to the taking of any wild coho.

Wicked offshore weather kept most of the September coho quota from being reached. Ocean weather will remain unsettled for the foreseeable future. That’ll keep the Chinook focus inside north coast estuaries.

Improving tides should bring in more Chinook for Nestucca, Salmon, Tillamook, Nehalem, Alsea and Siletz Bay and River anglers next week. Tides are on the increase this weekend so fishing should remain productive as we’re in the middle of peak season now. Hardware, such as spinners work better the higher in the estuary you fish.

The Buoy 10 coho fishery remains strong and Chinook and jack retention begins October 1st. Seal and sea lions are working anglers hard above the bridge on the Washington side, but there are plenty of places to duck out of those hunting pinnipeds.

Razor clamming opens along Clatsop Beaches on October 1st. The best tide series won’t happen until around the 6th, however.

Crabbing should remain good to excellent in most north coast estuaries although stronger tides next week may hamper success.
