Chetco/Rogue River Fishing Report

Chetco River - Brookings, OR (Curry County)

by Kenny Priest

Fresh steelhead continue to show up in the Chetco, while spawned out fish are making their way back to the ocean according to Martin. “There are still enough fish around to have a good day, although catch rates are now dropping. The river still has plenty of water, so fishing could be decent through the end of the month,” added Martin.
Steelhead fishing remains good on the Rogue, with lots of hatchery fish still showing up according to Martin. “The jet boats anchoring in the lower river are getting three to six keepers a day. At least three spring salmon were caught last week.”
