Heavy chrome-bright salmon just hours out of the salt provide amazing sport and memories that will last for years to come.

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 Lisa could no longer gain any line.

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.
