Winter Steelhead Fishing in Oregon

Winter Steelhead
Fishing in Oregon

Join us in the heart of winter, chasing the fierce and majestic steelhead in Oregon's pristine coastal rivers.


The Peak of
Steelhead Fishing

Winter steelhead season, spanning from late November through March, is a time of excitement and anticipation for anglers. As the chill sets in, the coastal streams come alive with the presence of big, wild, and hard-fighting native steelhead. Our primary focus during this season is on the Nehalem (both North and South Fork) and Nestucca Rivers. However, we remain adaptable, adjusting our locations based on river levels, weather conditions, and, most importantly, where the fish are biting.

Navigating the Waters with Precision

At Hammerhead Guide Service, we pride ourselves on our flexibility and expertise. Depending on the conditions and the specific needs of our trips, we utilize either a 16' drift boat or an 18' inflatable pontoon.
