Salmon River Fishing Report

Salmon River - Otis, OR

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

Fall Chinook fishing on the Salmon river/bay opened Aug. 1, they are catching a few fish but it has been slow. The first couple weeks of September is typically when the Salmon River tidewater fishing really starts to heat up. Expect numbers of fall Chinook entering the estuaries to increase later in the month and into September. Best techniques include trolling herring/spinners, bobber fishing with bait, and casting spinners from the bank.
