“Salmon are staging at the mouth of the Chetco, with lots of jacks and a few adults,” said Martin. “Around 30 percent of the fish being caught are hatchery. Fishing will improve over the next several weeks. The outgoing tide has been best. The river closes above river mile 2.2 on Oct. 1 until the arrival of fall rains and increased river flows. Kings and Coho also are being caught on the Rogue Bay, while fishing for summer steelhead is good near Agness,” added Martin.
