Water is Perfect

Chetco River - Brookings, OR (Curry County)

by Kenny Priest

The water color on the Chetco is beautiful reports guide Alan Borges of Alan’s Guide Service. He said, "The color is perfect, but the flows were a little high on Wednesday. The few boats on the water all landed a couple, but I thought it would fish better. It’s possible the extra water moved the fish around a bit. The river is dropping very slowly and there isn’t much rain in the forecast, so the conditions should be ideal through the weekend."
