Trask River Fishing

The Trask River near Tillamook is one of the northern Oregon Coast’s best rivers for catching both fall and spring Chinook salmon, plus there are hatchery coho, wild steelhead and plenty of cutthroat trout.

Wilson River Fishing

Due west of Portland, the Wilson River has excellent fishing for fall Chinook salmon, winter steelhead and seasonal cutthroat trout.

Necanicum River Fishing

The Necanicum River near Seaside has a good run of hatchery and wild winter steelhead, plus nice opportunity to land a big fall Chinook salmon or feisty cutthroat trout.

Gnat Creek Fishing

Gnat Creek on the lower Columbia River is a good small-stream destination for winter steelhead and spring Chinook salmon.

Klaskanine River Fishing

The small Klaskanine River near Astoria has reliably good winter steelhead fishing as well as decent runs of spring and fall Chinook and fall coho salmon.
