Fall Cutthroat Trout

by Jeffry Gottfried
(Portland,Oregon )

Last Saturday, Educational Recreational Adventures took fathers and kids tenkara fishing on the Nehalem River near the Oregon Coast. Everyone was new to tenkara fishing. A 10 year old girl caught the first, the largest (13") and the most (5) cutthroats of the trip.

All of the fish were resident cutthroats, as opposed to the sea-run variety which tend to be a bit larger. In 2 weeks, 4 ERA guides will be taking 10 kids and a teacher tenkara fishing on the Nehalem.

A second group of ERA anglers fishing the Trask River did manage to catch sea-run cutthroat, five of which were over 12," including on that was 18".
