Trask River Fishing Report Location: Trask River by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff
Fall Chinook fishing has been slow to fair on the Trask. Very few, if any, hatchery coho are still available. The Trask should be fishable most of the week if the forecast holds, but check conditions before heading out. Bobber fishing bait, back-bouncing, back-trolling plugs or divers and bait, or casting spinners can all be effective methods.
The dam hole (MP 7 on Trask River Rd up to Blue Ridge Creek) has been closed since Sept. 1, but will re-open on Friday Dec. 1.
A few winter steelhead are showing up on the Trask, but it’s still early and fishing is slow. Drift fishing baits or bobber fishing with jigs, beads, or bait are all good techniques.
