Tillamook County’s coastal waters and bays are teeming with fish, some with salmon weighing upwards to 50 pounds! Tillamook sits near the mouths of the Kilchis, Wilson, Trask, and Tillamook rivers which flow down from the coast range to converge at Tillamook Bay.
The fishing guides provide the angler with almost endless possibilities for locations to fish such as Tillamook Bay, The Pacific Ocean, Nehalem Bay, the Nehalem River, the Kilchis, the Miami River, Wilson River, and the Trask River.
