Salmon fishing on Sixes River in southern Oregon closed today after a very memorable season. The Elk River, a close neighbor to Sixes remains open to the retention of some Chinook through March due to the hatchery component in the run. Already, most of the boats and bank fishermen on both these rivers are targeting winter steelhead. Steelhead season on Elk-Sixes is a very special season. Both rivers have solid runs of feisty chromers and they just don't get nearly the number of boats and fishermen as during salmon season. Side-drifting eggs, puffballs or yarn is the favorite method.

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.
