The Nehalem River is a rural stream flowing for more than 100 miles between Oregon's northern coastal mountains and the Pacific Ocean. Boaters usually run the upper river during the rainy season, form late fall to early spring. Ample flows or tidal waters are available year-round in the lower stretches. The low-elevation coastal mountains receive less snow than inland ranges, tending to drain during winter and early spring. Temperatures can be cold during the boating season, so gear up for weather even on sunny days.
