Tillamook Chinook Salmon
Of the five species of Pacific salmon, the Chinook and
are the most important to anglers. The two are often found in the same
waters and pursued in much the same way, but the Chinook is the larger of
the two and highly prized among anglers. When hooked, Chinook like to slug
it out, while Coho's are acrobatic and quick. Chinook are also known as the
king salmon or spring salmon.
Chinook are powerful swimmers that migrate
hundreds of miles up northwest rivers to their spawning grounds, and they
can grow huge. The rod-and-reel world record was taken in Alaska's Kenai
River in 1985 and weighed 97 pounds, 4 ounces. Most fish caught by northwest
anglers, however, range from 15 to 25 pounds. At the end of a fishing line,
Chinooks are absolute brutes - hard-running, stubborn fighters that will
give you all the challenge you can handle, and sometimes more. Tillamook
fishing guide Lee Darby specializes in targeting Tillamook Chinook,
salmon and steelhead.
Oregon coast guided salmon trips
Winter Steelhead fishing in the
Tillamook area is available
January though May and summer steelhead drift boat trips
are run June though July.
Steelhead fishing trips are run in our
18-foot drift boat where we float productive rivers
like the Clackamas, Wilson, Trask,
Nehalem, Necanicum and Nestucca in search of Oregon coast steelhead.
Tillamook Steelhead Fishing Trips
hatchery steelhead runs, both summer and winter, contain a mix of wild hatchery
fish and native wild steelhead. Now with the hatchery raised wild
broodstock program well established, steelhead returns the
Wilson River and Trask River are providing
excellent opportunities for some really big fish. Many Wilson River
fishing guides hook fish in to the high teens and even an
20 pounder. Oregon coast fishing guides reinforce the fact
that these wild fish are full of fight and provide an
excellent battle for both beginner and seasoned anglers alike. And
of course they are great eating too. Fishing these
Oregon coast rivers by non-motorized drift boat is a great way to
take in the beauty of these coastal rivers while experiencing some of the
greatest salmon and steelhead fishing in Oregon.
