I'm heading down to Seaside this weekend with a few couples to relax...but i can't sit around that long so I'm bringing the stick with me. Not interested in Salt. I've looked at some river maps, lakes etc. I'd like to stick to the Rivers. Anyone familiar with the area down there or have a suggestion so i can sneak away one day? PM me if you prefer, and if you don't want to share, understand.

Thanks.

Having stayed in Cannon Beach several times for kiddie beach vacations, I always thought fishing the Ecola River that runs through town would be cool.

I mean because of the name. You'd definitely want to wear waders, and rinse them in a diluted bleach solution.

The Necanicum River flows through Seaside is the obvious first choice. It's relatively small. It gets a decent run of steelhead and now is the time to hit it.

A backup would be the N. Fork Nehalem at the hatchery. To get there drive east on Hwy. 26 and take a right at Hwy. 53. The hatchery is about 8-10 miles. The downside to this is it gets crowded, especially on weekends. By mid-morning a lot of the guys leave, so there may be room for a fly fisher mid-day.

Sea run cutt season is closed.

good luck.....Mike

Sounds like the Necanicum is the way to go...going to hit it this weekend. I will post a report on Tuesday on how it went. Thanks for the advice.
