The Chetco was full of salmon after it dropped back into shape last week, with good fishing Friday and Saturday, and fair fishing on Sunday and Monday, reports Andy Martin of Wild Rivers Fishing. “A lot of the salmon that contributed to the hot action late in the week had moved upriver above Nook Bar by Sunday,” he said. “Fresh fish arrived in the tidewater on Saturday and produced wide-open action for a couple of guides who discovered the schools downstream of the takeout. Rain blew the river out Monday afternoon and although it will be fishable Wednesday, more high water is expected by Thursday.”
