In-between time for salmon and steelhead

Chetco River - Brookings, OR (Curry County)

by Kenny Priest

“Anglers on the Chetco are experiencing the in-between time for salmon and steelhead, as the fall salmon run is nearly over, and winter steelhead are still a few weeks away from catchable numbers,” said Andy Martin of Wild Rivers Fishing. “A few salmon are still being caught, but the overall action is slow. More fish could arrive after the next big rain, but steelhead catches will soon out-number salmon, and the best steelhead fishing won’t arrive until January.”
