The Fall-Winter Chinook Season on the Elk & Sixes Rivers required patience and diligence. Plagued by seemingly continuous high water and "blown out" conditions, those who stuck it out, eventually scored Silver.

Oregon's world renown Elk River features the state's latest arriving run of fall/winter Chinook that are big, bright and beautiful chunkers. Susan was delighted to come out on the winning side of a hard-fought battle with a gorgeous shiney football of a specimen.

Just back from a couple trips up on the Siltez River where my Guest Jamie got to tangle with some Brutes.

Lee & Dave find some Late Season Action on the Midddle Fork Willamette

Way to Go!

Dave and Lee were quite happy to enjoy some peace and solitude on their recent float from Dexter Dam down to Clearwater on the Willamette River. A few interuptions along the float due to some salmon and steelhead action seemed a welcome departure from the peace and quiet.

Guest Dougie B. was looking for a final late season float down the McKenzie. Despite the heat wave and an August date, I agreed to an early morning drift. Doug was overjoyed to land 2 salmon, a hatchery and a native, both in great condition for the late date, and a nice Summer-Run Steelie to finish off his "Hat Trick." A fine finish to his season!
