ODFW RECREATION REPORT
TRASK RIVER: steelhead, cutthroat
No reports of fall Chinook being caught in the lower Trask yet, but with fish present at Memaloose for the past several weeks and lots of rain the past week we expect fish to start sneaking in. A large number of coho showed up at the Trask hatchery on last weekend’s rains.
Summer steelhead fishing is slow but cold nights and recent rains should have these fish getting active. There are fish throughout the system.
Angling for cutthroat should be fair to good, sea-runs should be throughout the system. Try casting spinners or streamer flies in areas with cover, or dead drifting small presentations.
Due to a wetland restoration project between the tidewaters of the Trask and Wilson Rivers, public to the Hospital Hole on Trask tidewater is currently unavailable.
