Good Things To Come

Chetco River - Brookings, OR (Curry County)

by Kenny Priest

The Chetco closed for the season on Sunday with just a few boats fishing reports Martin. “There were still some downrunners in the upper river, but very few bright fish. Overall, steelhead season was good on the Chetco, especially the second half of the season. Large numbers of downrunners in late February and March indicates a very high spawner escapement. There also have been big numbers of smolts, another indication of good things to come,” said Martin.
