The author collected scales from angler-caught steelhead trout during the winter of 1941-1942. This data was supplemented with data from commercially gill-netted steelhead collected January 30-February 28, 1942. Most fish came from the lower Tillamook Bay or the lower Wilson River. The author examined size, growth pattern, age and sex, compared recreational and commercial fisheries, and made recommendations for management. This is a rare look at an Oregon coastal fishery in the early 1940s.
