Salmon fishing has been fair on the Chetco estuary, reports Andy Martin of Wild Rivers Fishing.  “One or two big fish are being caught a day, along with a decent number of jacks, but boat traffic has increased and overall catch rates are a fish for every fifth or sixth rod,” said Martin. “The outgoing tide has been best. Lots of salmon moved upriver with the rain in early October, while salmon also are being caught and released by anglers finding for rockfish in the ocean.
