Tillamook Spring Salmon
We will start our TILLAMOOK  BAY SPRING SALMON seasons the second week of May thru the end of June. ODFW doesn’t do a run prediction for Tillamook bay spring salmon but with last year’s amazing run of fish and all runs forecasted to be larger this year I think we are in for an amazing run in Tillamook like the other fisheries.   Tillamook bay fishing guides look forward to this fun time of year chasing the biggest spring salmon of the year!
2024 looks to be a year you will not want to miss out on!!! The average on these coastal springers are 15 to 20 pounds and we see a few over 30 every year.  We also saw one of the biggest jack salmon returns last year that we have seen in the last 10 to 15 years which is a very good indicator of a very good run the following year!
We also do combo bottom fishing spring salmon trips out of Tillamook when the ocean allows us to get out. The bottom fishing is very hands on and the success is very high with sea bass and lingcod every time we go out.  The limit for rockfish is also 5 fish per person per day  and still a 2 lingcod limit per person for 2024. Also if you have kids the bottom fishing is great lots of action and you never know what you mite reel in. We even see a halibut or two caught every spring. Don’t miss out on these fine eating fish we have in the spring seasons! Book now!
