Fall Chinook fishing will be very good as the river drops and the fishery effort shifts from tidewater into the river. Bobber fishing or casting spinners will still produce fish in upper tidewater areas, but river fishing with bait-wrapped plugs, drifted or back-bounced baits, or bobber and bait will be the best bet over the next couple of weeks.
The wild coho fishery in the bay is open Sundays and Mondays through November. Check with ODFW for details on seasons and bag limits. Summer steelhead fishing is fair. Several hundred summer steelhead have been recycled from Cedar Creek Hatchery in recent weeks (released at Pacific City). Spinners or small baits like crawdad tails are good options.

Fall Chinook fishing is improving as more fish enter the system and spread into tidewater. A few salmon snuck upstream with last week’s rain, but most fish are still in the bay. Trolling herring near the mouth or bobber fishing around the boat launches below the Pacific City bridges are both popular. Or try diving plugs when the tide is running. Bobber fishing or casting spinners is productive in upper tidewater areas. Fishing in upstream areas should improve as rains draw fish into the river.

Summer steelhead fishing is fair. Several hundred summer steelhead have been recycled from Cedar Creek Hatchery in recent weeks (released at Pacific City). Spinners or small baits like crawdad tails are good options. Cutthroat trout fishing should be fair to good. Anglers are reminded that no bait is allowed above Blaine, and the angling deadline is Elk Creek.
