As the high water levels in most of our Coastal Rivers drop, Fall Chinook fishing in the free-flowing sections has improved

Mark & Jeff hold a couple beauties we hooked on our "high water drift" on Friday. One of the six hook-ups included a powerful beast that continued to run and hold in fast water.

Siuslaw Salmon Fishing

We have begun our coastal salmon trips for Fall 2016. Trolling the Bays and the lower reaches of our coastal river is often the ticket to finding beautiful big fresh Chrome. This fortunate guest was blessed with a Chunky Siuslaw Toad on Tuesday's trip. Meanwhile, we continue to enjoy consistent success on our McKenzie River drift boat trips chasing down scrappy rainbows. Even novice fly fishers are doing well on the aggressive Rainbow Trout.

Fun day on the Lower Umpqua launching out of Winchester Bay. Got into some Fatties (Fall Chinook) and even managed a few Dungeoness Crab to boot. Fishing should get better and better in the coming weeks as the run builds.
