North Coast Fishing Report – Spring Chinook remain largely elusive in Tillamook County but fish are being caught nearly every day. The upper bay fished best on the strong tide series early this week, but tides are diminishing so the lower bay will become the target this weekend. Of course the ocean is an option as well with the best weather coming Friday and Saturday, but always volatile this time of year so check the latest offshore weather forecast before venturing out.

Halibut fishing out of Newport was productive today, Saltwater anglers have been dry-docked in recent weeks due to rough weather at the halibut grounds. Nearshore halibut catches have been productive out of Newport as well for those not wishing to venture too far west. Garibaldi and Pacific City haven’t been producing all that many halibut in recent weeks.

Bottomfishing has been a bit spottier lately, but persistent anglers are still finding plenty to brag about. Some nice lingcod continue to hit the deck despite the all-depth option off the table for the next several months.

Ocean crabbing has tapered off on much of the north coast. Bay crabbing in Tillamook remains good and tides are favorable for a bountiful harvest.

Tillamook district rivers have spring Chinook and very few summer steelhead available to anglers, but low water conditions continue to challenge bank anglers. Rivers remain too low to float a driftboat down.

Rivers and streams are open to trout fishing and cutthroat should be numerous. Check local regulations carefully before venturing out.
