Last night marked a sad good bye to a fantastic salmon season on Sixes River near Port Orford, Oregon. 2010 actually was a great year for salmon on many systems in Oregon. After quite a number of sub-par years, we have come to really appreciate the special years like 2010. It really was like "the good old days" on Elk-Sixes. Only time will tell if 2010 was a single year anomaly caused by improved ocean productivity or if it marks the beginning of multi-year cycle tied to better management decisions.

On Decenber 5,2010 Johnathan Rohrbacker of Malin Oregon caught this massive 51 pound Chinook Salmon while fishing the famed little Elk River located on Oregon's southwest coast. Apparently there was a heart-stopping moment during the battle when the fish wrapped the line up in some submerged wood. The rod was finessed around and under the structure and the fish eventually landed.

As we approach the beginning of November, we find ourselves in the middle or even toward the end of some Fall Chinook runs on a select number of our large rivers in western Oregon. This point however, marks only the very beginning of our cherished Fall Chinook fisheries on special rivers in the very southwest corner of our state. Specifically, the Elk River, the Sixes River, the Chetco River and a number of other small streams are getting their first viable batch of beautiful bright fall salmon with the onset of heavy rains this week. Indeed this marks the kick-off of our Elk-Sixes season.
