Oregon’s North Coast Steelhead – January

It’s prime time on many of Oregon’s north coast rivers and Water Time Outfitters has been busy getting clients into fish.  Our last week on the coast was truly exceptional fishing as our group from Arizona can attest.  We enjoyed excellent fishing despite low and clear water conditions.  With the water low and cold the key was to get deep. 

Expect January to be a good month and rivers like the Kilches, North Fork Nehalem, Neccanicum to yeild good numbers of chrome fish. 

We have been catching both wild and hatchery fish.  Many of the hatchery fish have been 8-10lbs or larger and look very healthy.  See decent numbers of wild fish this early is usually a good sign for prime time of the wild run later in the season.

Fishing from Tillamook, Oregon or Seaside, Oregon offer you many fishing options with Portland, Oregon less than 2 hour drive away.  See more about our fishing options at:  www.watertimeoutfitters.com
