NW Oregon Fishing Update for Nov 23

Northwest Oregon – East winds knocked down the ocean swell, making for great ocean opportunity for bottomfish early this week. Large ling cod and exceptional sea bass were taken at Three Arch Rocks near Oceanside for the few that were in pursuit. The lings were taking jigs worked in 130 to 140 foot of water, while sea bass were suspended, also taking “iron” jigs and shrimp fly jigs. Limits were easily had. Dinner reef closer to the north tip of the jetty is also producing good sea bass action.

Halibut and ocean salmon fishing is closed for the year, although one boat released a small feeder Chinook while bottomfishing at Three Arches.

The rivers are bare of driftboats and effort is low on Tillamook for Chinook. There was a rumor of early winter steelhead on the North Fork Nehalem, but action should pick up after Thanksgiving. The North Fork and Three Rivers should provide the best action for early season steelhead, and the Wilson River to a lesser degree.

Lower Columbia River – Crabbing was excellent on the lower Columbia over the weekend. East winds is preventing safe crabbing on some days, but when boats can get out, the action is great.
