Event - Annual Tillamook Crab/Fish along CANCELLED

Start Date
Fri 9/13/2019
End Date
Sun 9/15/2019




The Tillamook Fall Chinook run forecast is dismal for this year.  Guides that have fished the basin for many years are extending their time at the Buoy 10 fishery through the Columbia Coho season, abandoning Tillamook this year.  ODFW just announced reduced limits for the Nehalem system. 


Catch rates at last year’s Tillamook fish-along was down substantially from previous years and it appears it would be worse this year.  As chapter Co-President Jeff Stoeger said “No need in putting more pressure on fish that will be over fish and poor runs.” 


So it has been decided to call off the event for this year and hope for better returns next year.
