The Chetco blew out over the weekend, reaching 9,000 cubic feet per second on Saturday, but was down to 5,100 cfs on Sunday night reports Andy Martin of Wild Rivers Fishing. “It will be in prime shape this week before another big storm arrives to start the new year,” said Martin. “Plunkers caught a few steelhead Sunday in the high water. Catch rates tend to accelerate in early January on the Chetco, and often remain good through February.”
