NEHALEM BAY SALMON FISHING
Nehalem Bay Salmon Fishing is sometimes over looked when you have Tillamook Bay a short distance away. Although Tillamook Bay Fishing is a more popular fishery, it doesn’t make it a better fishery. Guided Nehalem Bay salmon fishing charters can be absolutely phenomenal salmon fishing.
Fall Chinook fishing is probably its most popular fishery, due to the size of Nehalem Bay Fall Chinook Salmon. Nehalem Bay fishing guides will tell you that Nehalem Bay produces on average larger Fall Chinook Salmon than surrounding fisheries.
Fishing Nehalem Bay for salmon is very much tide dependent, you really need to know how to understand how the same come and go with each set of tides. This can be said for Buoy 10 / Astoria Fishing, Tillamook Bay Fishing and even the Nestucca River. This is why guided Nehalem Bay salmon fishing trips are the way to go, because we know how to determine, when and where the fish are going to be on any given tide set.
Nehalem Bay guided salmon fishing trips usually start around the 1st week of October and will continue to the end of October or until there is a weather system that changes the fishing. On these Nehalem Bay guided charter trips, we will be targeting Fall Chinook and Coho Salmon, trolling herring at the mouth of the Nehalem River. The Nehalem River gets a healthy run of Fall Chinook Salmon and Coho Salmon as well as Steelhead. Steelhead fishing on the Nehalem River is fairly popular for Winter Steelhead.
