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.

 09/22/15 Tidewater finally took off: Tidewater fishing has been OK for the last three weeks but this weekend it really took off. Most every fisherman we talked with caught fish and saw other catching lots of Salmon in tidewater. Fishing the mouth has been good , however everyone is complaining that there are far too many boaters for the small fishing space. Inevitably, when there too many boats, folks start getting pissy. Some fishermen don't use much courtesy and other are just plain ignorant to the fact that their actions have a ripple effect on all the boats out there when it's crowded. Either way there could definitely be some better judgment used. Further up the bay lots of salmon are being caught on spinners. The Nestucca Bay blue tip in a number 6 deep cup Colorado blade has been producing very well. Close behind are the Perry's tide water spinners with or without the hoochie, and the Squid Stinger by ProGuide Tackle Co. All these lures have produced outstanding results in tidewater.

   Fishing the incoming tides from low to high has been much better than any other time. Salmon are still coming in off the ocean, nosing around, not finding the water conditions to there liking and going back out on the outgoing tide to the ocean.  They may sit off shore for several days before they try again. Not many Salmon are hanging out in tidewater yet. Water conditions are still too warm and still have a lack of oxygen that would keep them in the bay. Shorted days and colder night time temperatures are helping and I think soon we will start to see folks getting fish on all tides. Rain would be a big factor, if we could get some. The Nestucca River remains too low to drift and although there some numbers of sea run cutthroat trout running the river, not much else is. Springer's that have been sitting in the river all summer have begun to spawn and all though they are dark, ugly, stinky, beasts, the blue back trout that sit below them in the river are feeding on loose eggs . If you can find some spawning Springer's the trout are usually right behind them and are in feeding mode.
