Tillamook Bay is one of the great fishing destinations in the West. Tillamook Bay is host to five different Salmon and
steelhead producing rivers (Wilson, Trask, Kilchis, Tillamook and Miami). Most of the fishing done in the bay by anglers is for either Spring Chinook, Fall Chinook or Coho. Anglers are able to ambush these fish as they work their way through the various ditches and flats that make up one of the best Salmon producing fisheries anywhere.
Tillamook Bay Spring Chinook enter the river in May and are available to anglers through June. These are the largest of any of the Spring Chinook varieties that I fish for with fish into the 30 pound class. For more information about fishing for these great fish, visit my Tillamook Bay Spring Chinook page.
Tillamook Bay Fall Chinook start entering the river in September and they keep coming clear into December. This is one of the most remarkable runs of Salmon anywhere and with five tributaries providing us with returning Salmon, it’s no wonder that Tillamook Bay has a reputation far and wide as one of the best.
