Chetco River Fish Report for 2-26-2020
Fishing Continues to Be Hot
Chetco River - Brookings, OR (Curry County)
by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff
Steelhead are here! Fishing continues to be hot on the Chetco. Higher water conditions are most favorable for bank anglers with a plunking set-up, but as the water levels drop fishing by boat becomes another great option.
Flicking flies, tossing spinners, running plugs, bobber dogging, and bouncing eggs are all tried and true options. ODFW has been conducting spawning surveys/redd counts in tributaries and have noted a plethora of spawning wild adults. Additionally, anglers have noticed down-running spawned-out kelts in their catch.
Steelhead may be harvested through March 31. Wild steelhead bag limits are 1/day and 3/year (accumulative zone-wide) as part of a daily or annual salmon/steelhead bag limit.
