SOME GREAT FISH ENHANCEMENT GROUPS TO DONATE TO:
Monterey Bay Salmon & Trout Project: www:mbstp.org
WE ARE PROUD TO BE HELPING OUT WITH: PROJECT HEALING WATERS FLY FISHING www.projecthealingwaters.org
PACIFIC CITY DORY BOAT & DRIFT BOAT TRIPS ARE ALL ON HOLD!
The Pacific City area is one of the best fly-fishing locations in the United States. This area has rivers, lakes, and the nearby ocean. These waters usually have excellent fishing during their prime seasons.
Dory Trips are exciting and productive! Rockfish are the main species caught during the summer, but a fair number of coho salmon are also caught. Check the Saltwater Fly Fishing page for Fly Fishing Charters.
FRESHWATER & TIDEWATER FISHING REPORTS
FALL-RUN CHINOOK - 12/08/22 - A few late run chinooks are still being caught in Tillamook Bay rivers. Some of these rivers have chinook salmon runs until Christmas, but always check the ever-changing regulations for legal to keep salmon!
SUMMER-RUN STEELHEAD - 12/08/22 - Some summer-run steelhead are still scattered through out the Big Nestucca River basin.
TROUT - 12/08/22 - ODFW has planted the Town Lake with 300 Trophy Rainbows back in September, and there's still some of these beauties in there.
In addition to these beautiful big trout, over 200 surplus summer-run steelhead were put in the lake! But it appears that most of them may have exited the lake, went down Ferry Creek, and re-entered the Nestucca River.
A boat, float tube, or other floating devices will get you out to the fish on all our local lakes!
Wet flies (Bead Head Hare's ear Nymphs below a strike indicator is my favorite) and soft or reverse soft hackled nymphs, casted and retrieved, using an Intermediate or floating line, will get you into these fish too!
