I fish some of the coastal streams from time to time and am confined to the bank. As many of the good holes are posted for trespassing, how does one find out who the property owner is and where s/he lives so I can ask permission to fish on the property? (Specifically talking about Tillamook County). Is there a government office in Tillamook that would have the info and could give it out?

Sure, know you rlocation/or address and you can go to the county tax department and you can go through the docs there to get the recent mailing address for the tax payer. Many counties are online now, and show the property maps and deed info.

Also check with the local regulations. Not all of them are posted legally and when you access the river at a legal point you can walk wherever you want up to the high water mark. Hopefully this law will come into effect for the entire state soon, but right now it depends on the river system you're fishing. A lot of landowners try to claim public right of way because they own the land adjacent to it and like to lock up the use. This should open up a can of worms again. :grin: Either way make sure you do your research on the area you're fishing.

Go to the Tillamook county courthouse and down in the basement is the surveyors office. Ask to look at the tax assessors maps. You will need to know the Township, Range, Section and quarter section of the property you are wondering about. There are some general maps there that you can get started with. A portion of the Wilson and the Trask are in Township 1 South, Range 8 West, and flow through various sections. Upon finding the property you want to know about write down the tax lot number and the map number ie tax lot 700, map 1S 8 12AC is a lot in the Narrows on the Wilson River,

After you get the tax lot numbers, go upstairs to the clerks office, main floor, North end of the building and ask one of the clerks for the ownership information on that lot. You should get a copy of the assessed value, taxes etc but it will also have the owners name and address. Phone numbers are not provided so your next step is a phone book and a lot of quarters.

Good Luck.

Did a little searching around and found this site for the entire State of Oregon. Lists tax maps by county. A little cumbersome to use, but looks like it is all there.

Oregon Maps

You can also do a general Web Search for "Tillamook County Tax Maps" and find some more info.

Good Luck! :cheers:
