Oregon’s Tillamook has a lot going for it. This city is located right on the shoreline of Tillamook Bay, one of the most productive fisheries in Oregon. And beyond Tillamook Bay? The mighty Pacific Ocean lies in wait – and plenty of angling opportunities! All you have to do to experience them is hop aboard one of the many Tillamook fishing charters on offer.
 
Five rivers feed into Tillamook Bay and mix with the saltwaters of the Pacific Ocean, leading to a world-class brackish fishery. Because of this, an adventure onto the bay could see you hooking into anything from Chinook and Coho Salmon, to White Sturgeon, to Rainbow Trout. When you tire of the angling action available, you can then explore these waters for Crabs and Clams. The magic of fishing in Tillamook is that there really is something for everyone!
 
Choosing the perfect Tillamook fishing trip depends on what you want to catch. Crabbing is good year-round and makes for a perfect family-friendly activity. Trips usually start at a few hours on the bay’s shallow waters, with full day options also available. Beginners can opt for a half day introduction to these waters. More experienced anglers will want to head out for a full day. This gives you plenty of time to chase those trophy fish!
 
You’ll find local guides dotted all around the bay’s shoreline, offering both fishing and crabbing trips. Crabbing charters are especially popular in the summer months around Area G, and most clamming guides can be found in the upper bay. Traditional rod ’n’ reel fishing charters can be found in these areas, and everywhere in between!
 

 

Rules & Regulations

All anglers age 12 and above will need a valid fishing license to cast a line in Tillamook. If you’re going crabbing, you’ll need a Shellfish harvesting permit too.

January

Start off your year by targeting some prehistoric beasts. Yep, Sturgeon fishing in Tillamook is seriously productive in January! Rainbow Trout are also biting, and if you’d like to go crabbing, this is the time to do it.

February

The weather is still pretty dreary, but Rainbow Trout are happy to gulp down your bait. Sturgeon are very active, especially if there’s been a lot of rain. Crabbing and clamming opportunities are hot, too. 

March

Spring is slowly arriving, which means that clamming is at its peak. Lingcod and Rainbow Trout are popular catches in March, not to mention colossal Sturgeon.

April

Targeting Lingcod in the waters of Tillamook Bay is popular during April especially with the Sturgeon bite slowing down. Luckily, the Chinook and Coho Salmon spring runs are just around the corner!

May

Come to Tillamook Bay to get a taste of excellent Chinook Salmon fishing action! The spring Salmon run is at its peak, which means you can easily reel in big 30-pounders. Clamming is also excellent in May.

June

The weather is gorgeous, you can smell summer in the air, and the Chinook bite is solid throughout June. Lingcod are active and voracious in the bay as usual.

July

The hot summer months usually mean that the fishing action around Tillamook is slowing down, and that’s the case in July. You can still find Rainbow Trout, Lingcod, and some Chinook and Coho Salmon.

August

In August, you can feel fall approaching, which means the Salmon run isn't far away! You’ll find more and more Chinook and Coho Salmon in the waters of the bay, as well as Lingcod and Rainbow Trout.

September

The fall Salmon run is upon us and fishing is nothing short of glorious! Chinook are the superstars of the show, and they come in healthy sizes of 30+ pounds. Fish on! 

October

Head out to Tillamook Bay and its tributaries to chase Coho, Chinook, and other Salmon species. Crabbing is also popular right now, so don’t forget to set up a few crab pots. 

November

November is one of Tillamook's most productive months when it comes to fishing. Salmon, Sturgeon, Rainbow Trout, Lingcod, Crabs, and Clams are all abundant and there for the taking.

December

Coho and Chinook Salmon may be departing, but Sturgeon are back and biting all through the bay. If you decide to do some crabbing and clamming in December, chances are you’ll have great success.

My boyfriend and I had a great day fishing with Jamison. He knows the people and waters well due to years of experience. He threw crab pots while we fished, and we caught our limit of crab quickly. The fishing was slow, so Jamison tried different tactics and locations, which is exactly what a guide should do. It was a great day on the water, I highly recommend going fishing with Jamison.

Big Johnson’s crew went above and beyond to put my son and I into some fish. The Salmon weren’t biting so he took us out to the ocean and we caught our share of fish. Even got to do some crabbing. Highly recommend!!

I recently went out on a full day trip with Captain Wade. It was easily the worst weather day of the fall and while we had to work to catch fish, we put a few in the boat. Wade stayed positive the entire time even when the wind and waves caused the ugliest rats nest tangle I've seen in quite a while! Great guy and great experience...give him a try, I doubt you'd be disappointed!

Captain Johnson worked hard making sure we got into some fish and had a good time. He took the time to take us multiple place to try and land a good fish. We slayed the sea bass in the bay. It was a great time. If you want a guide that will put a lot of thought and work into the trip, Captain Johnson is definitely your guy! Would definitely recommend and go again!
