The Wilson River is fishable and should remain so this week. There are some early hatchery fish showing up and a few getting caught although, overall, fishing has been moderate to slow. The fishing should just continue to improve over the next couple of months. With the current conditions, large presentation and bright colors will be most effective this weekend. If you like to bait fish, now’s the time!
Due to a poor return of Chinook salmon, and conservation concerns about meeting spawning escapement goals, emergency regulation changes took effect for coastal rivers in the NW Zone on Nov. 1, 2018. As a result, the Wilson River is closed to fall Chinook fishing upstream of the yellow ODFW sign posted near Makinster Road at River Mile 1.1 (in tidewater). Below the deadline, the bag limit for fall Chinook is reduced to one adult Chinook per day and a limit of 3 from Nov. 1 through the remainder of the season.
Trout fishing in streams will reopen May 22, 2019.
This concludes our 2018 Wilson River Fishing Report.
