TILLAMOOK STEELHEAD GUIDES have seen some very good steelhead action over the last few weeks.  We have been mostly fishing the Wilson River due to such great fishing we have not really gone elsewhere.  We have been mostly bobber fishing due to the water being lower than normal and that has been paying off every day with great success. 
TILLAMOOK STEELHEAD GUIDES have been getting a mix of wild and hatchery steelhead most every day some days we get more of one then another but there has been fish every day with some very good days of double digit hook ups and landed days mixed in.  The weather has been on the very cold side for the Tillamook area with snow on many days over the last few weeks.
TILLAMOOK STEELHEAD GUIDES are looking forward to a few more fun weeks of steelhead fishing before we switch over to SPRING SALMON ON THE COLUMBIA RIVER.  We will be steelhead fishing thru Mar 23rd here in the Tillamook area.  We are also coming back after the columbia river spring salmon season and doing late winter steelhead fishing April 8th – 16th due to such a great season we have been having.  These late trips are normally much warmer with still great fishing and much less crowded fishing.  I have spots open for these trips!

 

 

Tillamook winter steelhead guides are seeing a great run so far here on the Tillamook county rivers. We have been mostly fishing the Wilson River, Trask river andNestucca river so far this winter. We are about a month into the winter steelhead season here. It should just keep getting better into Feb and Mar. We have been seeing a mixed bag of hatchery fish and wild fish in the catch.

We have been donating some of the wild fish to local broodstock programs on the Wilson river and Nestucca river. We as Tillamook winter steelhead guides are very excited for the next few months of the season. We have seen some very large fish so far this season which is always very exciting when you get your chance at a fish of a lifetime! We still have a few spots open in Mar if you’re still looking to get out and chase the fun and rewarding winter steelhead. We are fishing out of a 14 foot headwater marine cataraft, a 20 foot Willies drift boat and  are 21 foot Willies sled. We are very verstal having these 3 boats to choose from due to the ever changing water conditions here on the northwest Oregon coast. Here are a few pictures from over the last month of fishing.
