33lb. Native Chinook

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

Fall Chinook fishing has been slow on the Alsea as of late. The cooler weather and forecasted rain events should keep fish on the move while they stage and wait for a more significant rain event. Fish are now spread out from the mouth to the upper portions of the tidewater. The numbers of fish in the estuary will continue to increase through October until we get a significant rain event to move fish up into the river.

***Reminder*** There is no wild coho retention in the Alsea for the 2021 season. Please practice good catch-and-release for wild coho, keep them in the water and release immediately.

Trout fishing in streams remains open through Oct. 31. Check the regulations for open areas and bait restrictions
