Fly Fishing Little Nestucca River Oregon
The Little Nestucca River flows from its source in the
Coastal Mountain Range to Nestucca Bay on the coast
of Oregon. It's known for its winter steelhead, Coho
salmon, Chinook salmon and sea-run cutthroat trout. At
the present time, fishing for Coho salmon is not
permitted. Fall run Chinook salmon season is also

Fly fishing the Little Nestucca River is a little different
from many coastal streams in Oregon because you
need a motor to go upstream in order to drift back
downstream. The boat launch is located near the U. S.
Highway #101 Bridge. You can drift downstream from
there into the bay but you will need power to get back
to the boat launch.

Above the bridge, the river is surrounded by private
farmland for about two miles upstream and there's not
any access. Above there you will find some access
along the Little Nestucca Road. In general, the
upstream area is good for steelhead fishing and the
tidewater area best for sea-run cutthroat trout fishing.
The wild steelhead fishing is catch and release only.

You can fish the Little Nestucca River year-round but it
is species dependent
Winter is the best time to fish for the steelhead
Spring fishing is limited to resident species
Summer fishing is limited to resident species
Steelhead fishing is good during the late fall season
