Full Report: NEHALEM RIVER: Chinook fishing is slow to fair, with fewer fresh fish available as the month goes on. Best opportunity may be in the bay or lower river where fish may be holding until more rain comes. The bay also remains open to wild coho retention through November. The North Fork Nehalem still offers some hatchery coho and Chinook opportunity, but rain is needed to improve fishing conditions. Look for a few early winter steelhead to show in the next few weeks.
