: NEHALEM RIVER: Chinook should begin entering the bay in small numbers by early July. Trolling herring near the mouth of the bay will be the most productive early in the season. Sea-run cutthroat are available in tidewater and will begin moving upstream over the next few weeks. Casting spinners or streamer flies along banks or to cover should get some bites. Anglers are reminded that no bait is allowed above tidewater through August 31.
