NESTUCCA RIVER, LITTLE NESTUCCA RIVER, AND THREE RIVERS: steelhead, cutthroat troutSummer steelhead are available throughout the basin. It appears to be a below average run this year, but there are still some fish around. As the summer goes on the upper river (Moon Creek to Elk Creek) can provide some good opportunity. The river is small and clear this time of year though, so use light gear and your stealthiest tactics.Cutthroat trout are available throughout the Nestucca basin. This time of year there can be some good opportunity for sea-run cutthroat in the upper tidewater and lower river. These are aggressive fish and fun fighters on light gear.Spring Chinook season closed on July 31. Fall Chinook salmon season legally opened on Aug. 1, but it will be quite some time before we would expect to see any in the River. Anglers are reminded that this years bag limit for wild Chinook is 1 per day and 5 per year from the North coast aggregate (Necanicum River to Salmon River).Three Rivers from the mouth to the hatchery weir is closed to fishing July 16 to Sept. 30.We recently received notification from the Oregon Department of Transportation that Farmer Creek Wayside and boat ramp will be closed late this summer through fall of 2020 due to construction associated with the Hwy 101 realignment..
