Fly Fishing in Oregon Coast

Long gone are the days when fly anglers would just stick to fresh waters and ignore all the excitement found in saltwater fisheries. Oregon’s fly fishing enthusiasts have embraced the saltwater to great success! If you’re more interested in what the freshwater has to offer, check out our Oregon fly fishing page.

What type of trip is right for me?

The sprawling coastline is home to many bays that make for a great introduction to the local fishing scene. However, if you know your way around a fly rod and then some, you might be interested to see how you can put it to good use offshore, as well.

Half Day Trips

Shorter trips are intended for easy to reach places like  Tillamook Bay and the coastal reaches of the Columbia River. This mostly involves fishing for the likes of Steelhead Trout as well as Chinook and Coho Salmon.

Full Day Trips

Eight-hour trips and longer are where things get interesting. Offshore fishing charters in places like Astoria have a very unique offer – fly fishing for Albacore Tuna. Summer and early fall is when these fish are closest to shore, making it a perfect time to strike. It’s still a 70-mile ride, but more than worth it for the opportunity.

How to Prepare

Albacore fly fishing is strictly BYO gear. This means you’ll need a 12–14 wt rod if you want to get in on the action. Regardless of exactly where you’re fishing, you’ll also need a fishing license for all anglers ages 12 and older.

Whether it’s a calm day of bay fishing or adrenaline-pumping Tuna action you’re after, the Oregon Coast is the place to be!

Fish in the bay\river. It may be rough going across the bar for a newbie. But expect to catch fish, because you will!

Lovely time to be out there. Not too hot or cold. It was a weirdly calm day. We also saw a whale, dolphins, seals and sea lions. Lovely smaller town, go to whale bites cafe!

Hit and miss on the fish. Good weather but a very knowledgeable guide is recommended or you could be going for a boat ride

Understand that it's great to catch fish but depending on weather and conditions of the water there is no guarantee on leaving with fish.

Fishing in July is a great balance between catching fish but not being too crowded with the number of boats in the water.

Nice heavy jacket and long sleeves to shed off when fishing in the morning. We had a 7 to 11 trip to Timothy Lake♡ Absolutely loved the peacefulness of the morning though drive was great! But service is spotty so make sure to write down your directions.

Helpful to know river levels and what affects it (dam releases on Columbia, snow melt on Mt Hood, weather, etc.). Know when the fish are running. Go with a guide if you can.
