Wes Connected with Numerous Late-Run Spring Chinook Over the past 10 days we have had great luck finding some quality Spring Chinook, mostly of  hatchery origin.  To our delight, all the fish retained had nice orange meat.  Back-bouncing baits, running baits behind divers, and even plugs all produced strikes.  Wes spent 2 days of his vacation successfully chasing after big fish and then also did a day of fly fishing for Rainbow Trout on the very scenic upper McKenzie River with his son Wes Jr. and grandson Taylor also joining in on the fun.  It was great to watch all three [...]

None the less, persistence and a tap from Lady Luck's wand, continues to create special moments and lasting memories from this season's Elk-Sixes fishing.
