I circle the hold over tides at Tillamook Bay in January when I start booking trips. I love fishing these tides and was excited to arrive from an incredible Columbia River Gorge season to a system full of big chrome Fall Chinook.
I’ve had a number of great folks out in the last week and results were mostly good and even incredible. We did have one day where I was only able to manage 2 nice Chinook, but if that’s as bad as it gets, this will be a great season.
Tillamook Bay salmon fishing will continue on through October and I’ll be fishing for mint bright fish all the way through November. Let me know if you’re looking to get out.
Here’s a few shots…..
