Kilchis River Steelhead Report
Kilchis River - Idaville, OR (Tillamook County)
by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff
The Kilchis is a wild steelhead river with no hatchery steelhead releases. The winter steelhead run is at its best on this system late December through early April. The Kilchis can get low and clear, so it fishes the best as the water drops after high water events. It is often one of the first Tillamook Rivers to come back into shape after a rain event.
Steelhead are in the Kilchis, but effort has been light and there have been few reports. The Kilchis has been low and clear, but will probably be in good condition early next week based on the weather predictions.
Trout fishing in streams will reopen May 22, 2019.
