The Trask is still a little high, but should be in shape by late this week
by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff
The Trask is a mostly catch-and-release river for winter steelhead, as there are no hatchery releases, although it does get the occasional stray. The Trask is still a little high, but should be in shape by late this week and will fish through the next update after that. There are wild steelhead (catch-and-release only) throughout the system.
All wild steelhead must be released unharmed. Avoiding long fights and handling will reduce stress on released fish.
