The North Coast of Oregon has a tremendous amount to offer to the discerning tourist, miles of clean beaches, dramatic seascapes, crabbing and clam digging, deep sea fishing, swimming and surfing, kayaking and of coarse girls in bikinis. Perhaps one of the most overlooked activities on the coast is fishing any one of the many scenic rivers that flow from the Coast Range Mountains. These rivers include the Trask, Wilson, Nestucca, Nehalem and more.
Thanks to a strong commitment to reestablish healthy runs of wild fish to these rivers by the ODFW, fly fishing for steelhead, salmon and trout is as good as it gets anywhere on the west coast. A complete removal of all gillnets, one hundred percent catch and release for all wild fish and a brooding program run by conscientious local citizens are among the leading factors that has successfully rehabilitated these rivers. From December to May there is good fishing here, so long as the rivers are in shape. Fly fishing for steelhead, cutthroat trout and spring kings, as well as spey casting instruction is what I'm offering during these months. Give me a call, you won't be disappointed.
