Kelly & Bill had a day to remember landing the famed Elk River Hawgs they had only previously heard about. The short-lived rise in the river provided a couple days of hot fishing before the river dropped back to low and clear conditions. I just hope the boys had a good supply of Ben Gay after quite a day!

A recent rise in the river levels on the Elk and Sixes Rivers last week resulted in some spectacular action on chrome-bright chunker Fall Chinook. Unfortunately, the water levels receded just as fast and the rivers returned to the low and clear conditions which preceded the rains. Word is that the first Winter Steelhead on Elk River has also been reported in the catch.

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.

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.
