Some of the better small streams on the central and north Oregon coast close on March 15th. For what that's worth.

Crowds seem to thin out here right around this time of year (mid-Feb), and by March you would have most of the water to yourself, especially on the wild fish rivers. Still, there's not *that* much water to fish, especially if you are limited to the north coast. The weather/flows will dictate what will fish (or fish best) when you are here, and usually that is only a small percentage of the available stream miles. In really high water, there are only a couple places on the north coast even bothering with in March.

Most of the coast fishermen in Oregon are after meat, so they'll be in the first couple miles below the hatcheries (that is, if they are not already off chasing springers). Avoid these spots if you can.

If it were me, though, I'd check out the Olympic. More water, more fish, and arguably better scenery.
