We are currently, solidly into our cherished Winter Chinook Salmon Season down on the Elk & Sixes Rivers near Port Orford. These fish are bulls. Heavy chrome-bright salmon just hours out of the salt provide amazing sport and memories that will last for years to come. Don't miss this opportunity to get in on a very special fishery [...]
Right now we have availablity for exciting guided driftboat trips on the Elk & Sixes Rivers. These precious streams have been kicking out boxfulls of large, gorgeous late-run Chinook routinely following each rise in the rivers. Recent rains have made for great sustained fishing. If you have never dabbled in the fishery, you owe it to yourself to enjoy this very special experience. Book a trip now while 2014 prices still apply. The Fall-Winter Chinook fishing down here near Port Orford usually holds through December 31.
The rain which pulls our salmon from the Pacific Ocean into their natal streams has been all too absent this fall season. With only 3 short intervals of rain this fall, bumper fishing days have been in short supply on the smaller coastal streams in southwest Oregon in 2013. Folks with enough savvy or good fortune to time their fishing soon after a good rain often reap chrome rewards. Since an inch or two of rain may only result in a couple days of good fishing, timing becomes everything. Sustained wet weather that keeps the river level up with [...]
First pass of the morning and Bill was into an Elk River chrome Chunker Chinook. What a way to start the day!
In November and December I am headquartered down south on the Elk & Sixes Rivers at Port Orford. We have high hopes for a great late fall season this year. Big chunker Chinook are the target prey and the driftboat provides our means of attack. With consistent fall rains from Mother Nature and abundant numbers from the fish gods, this season could be epic. If you've never dabbled in this fishery, you may want to consider booking a trip.
As we move toward November so do the Fall Salmon move upriver from the lower tidewaters to their natal tributaries. Brillant hues of yellow, orange and red adorn the river banks as anglers mine the waters for the platinum prize that swims below. Fishing tactics change as fishermen progress upriver. Tidewater trolling gradually gives way to plugs, spinners and carefully drifted baits and succullent eggs supended below floats. Persistent fly fishermen can find action as well, given the right conditions.
Recent Rains busted our Fall Chinook Fishery wide open. The great tidal fishing that has been enjoyed now for a month or two on many of our coastal estuaries, has spilled over into the free flowing rivers above the tidal influence thanks to last week's wet and wild deluge. The same rains that set precipitation records for September in many locations, pushed fall salmon into the upper rivers. As the flood waters drop and clear, fishermen have the luxery of chosing to either fish up high for fast moving migrating salmon or to continue fishing the estuaries as new [...]
Reports of decent steelhead fishing surfaced up and down the coast in early January. As the early rains of 2013 diminished and gave way to a short cold snap, the bite layed down a tad. Recent rains over the last few days should now provide a welcome jump start and packs of new fish should be pushing through soon.
When our river finally dropped into fishable shape, the fish responded nicely. The problem was, too much water most of our late Fall Season.
