Elk and Sixes fished well early last week

Elk River - Port Orford, OR (Curry County)

by Kenny Priest

According to Martin, the Elk and Sixes fished well early last week while the Chetco was blown out. “Decent numbers of hatchery fish moved into the Elk, where wild kings must be released. The Sixes has been a good bet as well. Both rivers can be tough to fish during lower flows, as expected this week. Salmon season is finished on the Rogue, while steelhead have yet to arrive. Except for a few half-pounders in the Agness area, the Rogue is slow. Expect winter steelhead to arrive by mid-December.”
