Elk & Sixes Rivers are due to Rock

The Elk & Sixes Rivers in Southern Oregon are are known for a late run of beautiful, big Fall Chinook. November & December are the best months to book a trip for these great fish.

A True Fish Tale (if there is such a thing)

A True Fish Tale (if there is such a thing)

Day #1 on the Siletz River we hit several big Chinook. Unfortunately, the brightest of the batch broke off before getting to the net and disappeared along with the plug. Day #2 we were drifting down river when I spot a plug floating down river about 30 feet away. I row over to the plug and as lift it out of the water I see it is connected to the jaw of a fish that was apparently eaten by a seal. The seal obviously lacked a taste for sharp hooks and hard plastic.

On a Guides "Day Off" we enjoyed some great success landing 8 out of 12 biters drifting eggs for "Fallies."

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.
