NESTUCCA RIVER, LITTLE NESTUCCA RIVER, AND THREE RIVERS: steelhead, Chinook, cutthroat trout are distributed throughout the basin, but in relatively low numbers. Due to the poor returns this year, fishing has been slow and usually winds down this time of year. That said, there are fish being caught and some sporadic good days. The summer steelhead should be available throughout the basin. 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.Three Rivers from the mouth to the hatchery weir is closed to angling July 16 to Sept. 30.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.

Access Info


Winter Steelhead should be fair to good later this week as the river drops into fishable condition. Both wild and hatchery will show in catch. Some fish are available in Three Rivers but most are caught in the main river this time of year. No bait is allowed upstream of Moon Creek at Blain and the angling deadline is at Elk Creek. Spring Chinook opened April 1 but few fish are present. Very slow this month
