Cape Mears

Rating - Fair   

Thursday, Apr 09 2020
As of March 23, 2020 All County, State and Federal parks within Tillamook County are closed. Per ODFW, All fishing seasons remain open. (Except for salmon and steelhead fishing on the Columbia River.)At 120 acres, this lake is the largest in Tillamook County. To reach thislake, go west on Third Street from Tillamook a mile and three-quarters; take the first right onto Bay Ocean Road and go five miles. The lake sits next to the road. Bank angling is available most of the way along the road, and a public angling dock is located along the shore next to the road. A boat ramp is available off the main highway just past the angling dock. A dike access road also runs along the dike on the east edge of the lake. Parking is available at the end of the road and it is a short walk back to the lake. This road is narrow and parking along the edge is not advised. From mid-March through early May legal rainbow trout are stocked. During the winter, excess hatchery adult steelhead are released if available. In this situation, the steelhead are considered trout and are subject to the "no more than 1 fish over 20 inches per day" portion of the trout bag limit. Largemouth bass, bluegill and brown bullheads are also present; however, the bluegill and bullhead populations are very low and angling success is very poor. Anglers are encouraged to practice catch and release on largemouth bass.

Trout stocking is complete for the season in North Coast lakes, but there are still hold over trout available and winter can be a great time to fish for them as these trout will be larger now, and getting hungry!
