Fisherman posing with Coho Salmon on Trask River

October - December

Oregon’s coastal rivers receive runs of three different species of Pacific Salmon; Chinook (aka King), Coho (aka Silver) and Chum (aka Dog) salmon. These three species can be fished for in the rivers throughout the fall. Pictured on left is a Coho salmon from a Tillamook Bay tributary.

December - March

The quintessential gamefish species of the northwest is the steelhead. We are lucky to have a strong winter run of these mythical creatures on Oregon’s north coast. Technically speaking, steelhead are a super-sized and super-charged rainbow trout that lives most of its life in the ocean before returning to our beautiful rivers.
