: TRASK RIVER: Winter steelhead fishing should be fair to good. Fish will be spread out. Cover lots of water and adjust your techniques to the conditions to entice some bites, especially as the water gets clear and lower. Side drifting, plugs, or bobber and jig are all productive techniques. The North and South Forks are closed to angling as of April 1. Spring Chinook fishing is usually very slow in April as few fish have arrived yet.
Anglers who catch a steelhead or salmon with numbered tag(s) are encouraged to report catch information via the internet at or by calling ODFW at 503-842-2741 and asking for Derek Wiley. All live tagged fish that are not legal to retain or are voluntarily not kept should be released quickly and unharmed with tags intact.

Misc Info: -
The road shoulder has been widened at the Cedar Creek boat launch, which will allow vehicles to pull off the road while launching. Anglers should use caution to avoid disturbing fresh fill in the area. Plans are in the works to construct a new boat slide at the site in the near future. Please do not block boat launching at this site.
