It’s Time for Tillamook Steelhead!

A happy fisherman holding a Tillamook Steelhead on the Wilson River

Bright chrome fish, straight from the ocean…what could be better this time of year? Not much, and it looks like the winter steelhead have arrived in Tillamook. The fish we have seen so far are bigger and brighter than last year’s fish. River levels were good through the weekend, and will continue to slowly drop during the upcoming week. Dropping river levels will also bring the Nestucca into primetime, and eventually the Nehalem. Bundle up and bring some gloves. It’s time to chase some chrome!

River levels will change regularly this time of year, with rising rivers bringing in fresh fish. We appear to be in a wetter pattern than we were in December and January, which is good as the fluctuations are what we want. We all know that what goes up must come down, and some of the best steelhead fishing takes place on the drop. Tillamook County is an angler’s paradise in February and March and we’re here for it!

Whether you love to drift the river or would prefer to fish from a sled, we have options to choose from. We’ll be fishing through March, taking advantage of all that the season has to offer. Let us know what you’re looking for and we’ll help create a memorable experience for you.
