As our McKenzie River Salmon Season comes to a close, we now have reports of freshly arriving Salmon in Oregon’s coastal rivers

Saying Goodbye to our 2017 McKenzie River Salmon Season. Our final September salmon journey down the McKenzie this past week proved fun and surprisingly productive.  We actually brought 3 hatchery salmon to the net on Thursday, September 7, including a double header on a last minute half-day effort.  When I got the call, I was initially pretty skeptical about our prospects given the late date and the fact that I had pretty much already packed it in for our McKenzie River Spring-Summer Chinook Season.  I guess since I was available and I had noticed a forecast for possible showers, I [...]

  Mark & Jeff hold a couple beauties we hooked on our "high water drift" on Friday. One of the six hook-ups included a powerful beast that continued to run and hold in fast water. After a good half hour battle, we ultimately had to move down around a point to find water soft enough to bring it to net.

March can be a Special Month for Winter Steelhead Fishing on Oregon’s Coastal Rivers

  Large Winter Steelhead are often available in the Month of March. Once in a while everything comes together with dropping river levels after a freshet and even some sunshine can all cumulate into magical March memories. Meanwhile, such rivers as the Umpqua and the Columbia are among the large systems already producing the coveted Spring Chinook salmon.

Mondo Siuslaw Silvers still Rockin’

  Rob & Lisa enjoyed some great salmon fishing landing 8 chromers. Our Sunday trip was high-lighted by a unique, epic battle that these folks will never forget. At one point I talked them into casting spinners. As luck would have it, the gal got a great grab about 4 ft off the boat. The fish went ballistic with an amazing aerial display and several burning runs of 50 ft or more. I backed the boat away from some wood, but eventually the fish got under a log and the Lisa could no longer gain any line. She handed me [...]

Fresh Coho still Swimming around in the Lower Siuslaw

  While most of the folks fishing the lower Siuslaw near Florence adhere to a trolled herring as the "GO-To" bait of choice, my recent guest Duane C. can readily testify that trolled lures can do equal damage when it comes to catching the attention of chunker-sized chome Coho.

  While trolling and casting on the Siuslaw Estuary, Duane & Rebecca suddenly hit platnum and doubled up on nickle-bright Silver Salmon. The Siuslaw Bay at Florence still had beautiful freshly-arriving large Coho available just before the current low pressure system moved in.

Siuslaw Silvers on the Bite!

  For several weeks now the Siuslaw River has been dishing out some consistent Silver Salmon action. While trolling herring down in the Bay near Florence has been the "go to" method, some folks have found some very cooperative Coho on spinners, trolled or pitched. Impending rain may soon move the fish, but hopefully a new batch will shoot in from the Pacific as river levels from the current freshet recede.
