Welcome to Nestucca River Outfitters (NRO), The Original Nestucca Valley Sporting Goods!

We are open from 6:00 A.M. until 4 P.M. ( Springer season  6.00AM to 6:00 PM ) seven days a week and we are located 20 minutes South of Tillamook at the junction of Hwy.101 and Hwy. 22  in the town of Hebo, Oregon.  Our location is central to all of the local bays and coastal rivers in Tillamook County and the surrounding area which includes Tillamook Bay, Nestucca bay, Nestucca River, Little Nestucca River , Trask, Kilchis, Siletz, Wilson,  Miami and Tillamook  rivers where some of Oregon's finest Chinook (King) salmon and steelhead fishing takes place.  We offer guided drift boat fishing trips utilizing fly fishing or bait and tackle techniques on all our local rivers daily with the top guides in the area.  We are able to accommodate large groups of 8 or more anglers with advance notice. We also offer guided half day Crabbing or sight seeing trips.  There are  a number of lakes in the area that are stocked with trout year round that make for fun fishing for kids and adults alike.

03/23/15 Where's the predicted rain?. For three days now weather forecasters have been predicting up to an inch of rain each day. We haven't seen it here, in fact the Nestucca looks beautiful and is running just under 6 feet. Not much pressure, I guess the predictions have scared folks off. Yes I know the NOAA gage is messed up and no I don't have a clue when they will fix it. I get that phone call about ten times a day " did you know the gage isn;t working?" "Well yes I do" "when they gonna fix it?" " well I'm not sure" I am not in communication with NOAA , I wouldn't even know how you do that. Suffice to say it is a government 4run agency, need I say more!~ Does Social Security look solvent, does Obama care work?, ask any veteran about government run military health care. Government can't do much right, why would you expect anything different from NOAA. "

03/21/2015 The predicted 1 inch of rain didn't happen: Instead we received about an eight inch, just enough to run the river back up to 5.10 feet. The height and river color were again perfect today. Fishing wasn't bad either. More Steelhead were caught in the middle river, 4th to Farmers today than in the lower river. Bank anglers were catching steelhead way up above moon creek. Pressure is getting lighter as far as boaters go, some have traded steelhead for spring Chinook fishing in the valley. Makes for a less crowded river here and a few more fish to go around.

03/16/2015 The Nestucca never reached the predicted 8 plus feet. It topped out at just over 7 feet and is now on a pretty good drop. It still had a lot of color yesterday afternoon , but by evening it was looking much better. Three Rivers would be a good bet for today if your bank fishing. By late afternoon yesterday I could began to see rocks under the water. the Nestucca could actually be fishable by this afternoon, tomorrow for sure, unless of coarse there is some more rain. That, for now, is not in the forecast. I'm betting that there will be steelhead everywhere by tomorrow. The fish that have been in the lower river for the last two weeks will have moved into the upper river and, I'm guessing, many more steelhead are moving in off the ocean with the new river levels.

03/15/2015 NOAA gage malfunctioning. As you might all have guessed the river gage has been messed up for some time now. I have no idea when they intend to fix it!. I manually read the gage this morning I got just under 7 feet. It's dark out and I have not yet observed the river, however yesterday afternoon it was starting to muddy up. My guess is that it is too off color this morning. The good news, the rains have subsided, the fishing should be dynamite by Monday or Tuesday. According to the powers that be, we are done with the rain for a few days. This is just what we needed to get some more fish moving up river and to pull some more steelhead from the ocean.

03/03/2015 Gauge is messed up.   The river gauge has been really messed up all week and not reading correctly. The Nestucca manually is reading between 4.8 and 4.9 feet. The water is low and clear however there are lots of steelhead being caught. Fishing is tougher than normal getting fish to bite in this water ain't easy but do-able.
