Salmon season is already tapering off on the Chetco

Chetco River - Brookings, OR (Curry County)

by Kenny Priest

Salmon season is already tapering off on the Chetco, as the prolonged high water allowed much of this year’s run to shoot upstream to spawn reports Andy Martin of Wild Rivers Fishing. He said, “Fishing has been fair at best since the river dropped back into shape the end of last week. Salmon will continue to trickle in each day, but with higher flows, those fish may not spend much time in the lower river. Some nice kings have been caught, with a few topping 50 pounds reported last week.”
