Chetco River Update

Chetco River - Brookings, OR (Curry County)

by Kenny Priest

We had good fishing before the “opener” on the November 4, but since then it’s been a little tougher reports Val Early of Early Fishing Guide Service. “We do have a bit of water right now, but many of the fish are dark, so sorting through them to find a good one to keep is the plan. There are a lot of fish on spawning beds already which isn’t surprising considering what we saw for fish in late October. We expect to see some steelhead showing up soon! We are supposed to get a good shot of water again the first of next week so we’ll see if that brings any more fresh fish,” Early added.
