Tillamook Coast: Spring Chinook Fishing in the Tillamook Bay

14 03 2017

Spring is around the corner, and so is some prime fishing out on the coast. From the article:

“Salmon is one of the most popular fish worldwide. But in the Northwest, Salmon is king.

In fact, you’ll often hear Chinook referred to as king salmon. This is a fitting title for a trophy cherished most by fishermen, chefs, and consumers alike. And while the spring runs might be smaller than those of the more famous fall season, the Tillamook Bay is home to some excellent spring Chinook fishing in May and June.”
