Salmon fishing is picking up on the Chetco estuary, with lots of jacks and a few adults to 20 pounds reports Martin. “Some boats are getting two or more jacks per rod, with a few adults mixed in,” said Martin. “A few jacks also have arrived in the tidewater area, and more likely will move up after this week’s rain. Salmon fishing is fair on the Rogue Bay, and slow on the Coos and Umpqua.
