Best option for late-fall king salmon

Elk River - Port Orford, OR (Curry County)

According to Martin, the Elk and Sixes rivers are the best option for late-fall king salmon. “Fishing has been slow the past three weeks because of low flows. If this weekend’s rain materializes, expect decent salmon fishing early next week on both rivers. The Elk and Sixes are known to have the latest fall salmon runs on the Oregon Coast,” added Martin.
