The Chetco is approaching summertime levels

Chetco River - Brookings, OR (Curry County)

by Kenny Priest

The Chetco is approaching summertime levels, with flows below 600 cfs, reports Andy Martin of Wild Rivers Fishing. “Steelhead fishing is slow because of the low, clear water, although a few fish are trickling in. Effort is light. Expect catch rates to jump after the next major rain.
