Steelhead are now being caught throughout the Southern Oregon Coast, but none of the rivers are red hot according to Andy Martin of Wild Rivers Fishing. “The Chetco has a decent number of hatchery and wild fish on the lower end, but it has been muddying up with each rain, with slides on the South Fork, North Fork and between Loeb and Ice Box,” said Martin. “The Elk and Sixes are fair for steelhead. Plunkers and boaters anchoring and running plugs also are starting to catch steelhead on the lower Rogue. This week’s rain should bring more steelhead into each system.”
