Nehalem Bay Fall Chinook Fishing-Oregon Coast

Nehalem River King Salmon Trips

September means Fall Chinook on the Oregon Coast. With the Columbia Buoy Ten season now closed, its time to fish Nehalem Oregon a few minutes south of Cannon Beach.

Chinook Salmon on the Nehalem River average 20 to 35 pounds with fish being caught in excess of 50 pounds every September. Most fish are caught in the "calm" waters out in front of the town of Nehalem between the Hwy 101 bridge out to the river mouth or the "jaws" on the Pacific Ocean. Using 10' 6" Fetha Styx mooching rods, trolling is the show here with cut-plugged herring and large spinners in 8 to 25 feet of water making for a tremendous fight. We average 4 to 6 King salmon a day.

We are currently taking reservations for fishing trips on the Nealem river. We will be fishing from a large and roomy 25 foot Alumaweld Super Vee with a 200hp Yamaha Outboard. Prime dates are still available for September.

Also we are booking the October Coho fishery on the Chehalis, Cowlitz, and Lewis rivers. Don't wit for the fishing to get good, Book it now!
