Full Report: NEHALEM RIVER: Chinook fishing success was fair in the lower river and slow in the bay last week. Water levels rose somewhat early in the week, but fishing conditions should be improving as the week goes on. The chinook run is past its peak.

No reports of early winter steelhead yet but the first ones should be showing in the north fork in the coming weeks.

Anglers who catch a steelhead or salmon with numbered tag(s) are encouraged to report catch information via the internet at or by calling ODFW at 503-842-2741 and asking for Derek Wiley. All live tagged fish that are not legal to retain or are voluntarily not kept should be released quickly and unharmed with tags intact.
