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.

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.

It's that time of year when Fall Chinook and Coho are on the docket up and down the Oregon Coast. As the salmon stage in the estuaries in preparation for their upriver migration, it's often a trolling game. As rain arrives and river levels climb dramatically, focus often changes to the free flowing waters well upriver of the tidal influence. Suddenly the drift boat becomes the craft of choice as fishermen row their way from salmon hole to salmon hole. As fish sense proximity to their natal spawning grounds, the bite can be ferocious with unnerving urgency and focused intent.

Last week I had the priviledge of introducing a couple guys from out-of-town to the McKenzie River. They were looking for a couple days of mostly fly fishing and got to see quite a bit of river as we did about 10 miles each day. Day 1 we fished the upper river and gave the guys a few good rides through some white water with a chance to enjoy the scenic majesty along the river.
