Nestucca River and Three Rivers

Rating - Good   

Tuesday, Oct 01 2019
Fall Chinook are starting to show up on the Nestucca estuary, with some fish being caught. There have even been reports of a few fish moving up river, although it will take a good rain before that happens in any numbers. 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).Summer 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. These are aggressive fish and fun fighters on light gear.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.
