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.

Nicholas and Jon enjoyed some Fall estuary trolling on the lower Umpqua River. They worked hard to land a total of 4 salmon during their trip, two keepers & two native Coho for release. Marauding seals added to the challenge while fighting 1 salmon.

What better way to enjoy the beauty and bounty of the Fall Season than catching a big Fall Salmon!

In recent weeks we have seen a huge percentage of Chinook Jacks in the catch mix in estuaries and rivers up and down the Oregon coast. This bodes favorably for next year's run of adult Fall Chinook! Meanwhile, silvers are making agreat showing as well, reflecting improved recent ocean conditions causing an upwelling of nutients which transitions through the entire marine food chain.

Among the traditional favorite crabbing spots along the Oregon coast are Coos Bay, Winchester Bay, Yaquina (Newport Bay), the lower Alsea at Waldport, and Bandon just to name a few. Coos Bay provides a wonderful mixed bag of fishing, crabbing, and clamming opportunites. With all the crab, tuna and silver salmon coming coming across the boat ramp, there was a waiting line yesterday at the fish cleaning station at Charleston. I am headed coastside in a few days where will be located just south of Bandon into September. From this location I can sample a number of great early Fall fisheries and crabbing areas including the mouth of the Rogue for Fall Chinook, the lower Coquille at Bandon, and Charleston (Coos Bay)for salmon fishing and crabbing.
